Monday morning The Washington Post marked a milestone for the Trump administration, or more specifically President Donald Trump. And George Conway, husband of Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway made certain to congratulate him on Twitter.
It began with a tweet by The Washington Post stating:
"The Post's Fact Checker database has been updated with President Trump's weekend remarks. He has surpassed 10,000 false claims during his presidency."

The Post is one of several organizations that tracks lies and false claims made by the President.
In response to their tweet, George Conway—husband of the woman who coined the phrase "alternative facts" to describe her boss' obfuscations—posted:
"Congrats, #DerangedDonald!! An amazing accomplishment!! No one but you could have achieved this. Not just the number. Covering all topics, never shying from even the most brazen, disprovable lies, you’ve even managed to tell multiple lies on same subject, lying even about lying!!"

Although many raised issues with Conway himself.
People pointed out George's wife Kellyanne "alternative facts" Conway also contributed to lies from the Trump administration.

George Conway was not alone in drawing attention to the latest accomplishment of President Trump. Although not all were as congratulatory.

If you told one lie a day from the moment you were born, you'd hit 10,000 lies when you were 27 years old. https://t.co/8Wjl0lK8ON— Philip Bump (@Philip Bump) 1556538378.0
Many noted the recent rapid acceleration of lying, from 8 per day to 23. While theories abound, only President Donald Trump knows for certain why he has such a difficult relationship with the truth.
