One of the most recognizable faces of former President Donald Trump's administration, ex-presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway, has confounded the internet with her comments during a recent interview with far-right Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
First of all, Conway's relationship with the truth has been demonstrably long-distance. Just days after Trump's inauguration in 2017, Conway coined the term "alternative facts" to describe then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer's lie that Trump's inauguration was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period." It wasn't.
"Alternative facts" would go on to characterize the rest of Conway's career, as she regularly emerged before the press with a steely smile to defend a President who would tell more than 30 thousand lies in just four years.
On Thursday night, Conway sat for an interview with Laura Ingraham, who is also famous for regularly promoting lies to millions of viewers.
That's when "alternative facts" devolved into alternate histories.
Conway told Ingraham:
"Joe Biden, he has this way—[and White House press secretary] Jen Psaki—of playing the blaming 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 and their messengers. Y'know, Laura, I like to say this administration doesn't have a messaging problem, they have a fact problem."
You can likely guess how social media users responded.
It didn't stop there.
Conway's memoir about her time in the White House is set for publication this summer, though it's unclear if fact-checkers will have time to rebut its "alternative facts."
