Kellyanne ‘Alternative Facts’ Conway mocked unmercifully for saying Biden has a ‘fact problem’

When Kellyanne Conway was in the Trump White House, she was mocked unmercifully by Democrats as well as Never Trump conservatives for her use of the Orwellian phrase “alternative facts.” And now, Conway’s critics are slamming the Republican strategist for, ironically, saying that President Joe Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki have a “fact problem.”

During a Thursday, March 10 appearance on Fox News’ program “The Ingraham Angle,” Conway told far-right host Laura Ingraham, “Joe Biden, he has this way — Jen Psaki — of playing the blame and game, name and shame nonsense of Washington. But it would rely on the American people believing it, and they’ve lost credibility not just in their message, in their messengers. You know, Laura, I like to say the Democrats don’t have — this administration doesn’t have — a messaging problem. They have a fact problem.”

It didn’t take Twitter users and Conway critics long to point out that someone who is infamous for using the term “alternative facts” is the last person who should be accusing Biden and Psaki of having “a fact problem”:

Another irony: Conway (whose critics sometimes mock her as Kellyanne “Alternative Facts” Conway) is married to attorney George Conway, a Never Trump conservative who has been a scathing critic of former President Donald Trump and a key player in the anti-Trump conservative group The Lincoln Project. While George Conway is considered one of the intellectual voices of the right, his wife is the complete opposite and specializes in performative politics and buffoonish antics. George Conway, agree or disagree with his right-wing politics, focuses on issues; Kellyanne Conway specializes in childish, infantile buffoonery.
