White House counselor Kellyanne Conway once famously stated that the lies propagated by President Donald Trump’s administration were actually “alternative facts.” So on Wednesday, when she tweeted the hashtag #FactsFirst in praise of Fox News topping October’s cable news ratings, she was ridiculed online:
