News post – Catch-23 No. 922 Doublespeak

After Trump’s press secretary called the last week’s inauguration the best attended ever, Trump’s counsellor defended the claim by saying there were ‘alternative facts‘. FYI, there are facts and then there are lies, but I guess saying provably untrue things is one of Trump’s key platforms.

On a related note, George Orwell’s terrifying masterpiece 1984 re-entered the bestseller list at number one.

Other parts of the world, where sanity still prevails, are uniting to right the wrongs inflicted by Trump’s first week in office. Canada is accepting the refugees that would be turned away from America and the Netherlands is putting an initiative in place to replace the funding cut from international women’s health clinics.
