Graphic Representation: TrumpTruth™ travails

As we all well know, Donald is insanely sensitive about the magnitude of anything associated with His Royal Tremendousness {see this subsequent post to follow].

So it’s no surprise that Trump saw a million-and-a-half adoring fans at his inaugural, the reality was quite different.

Nonetheless, Trump and his minions [most notably his press secretary] continue the Defend the TrumpBrand™.

Hence today’s offerings, starting with this from the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Steve Sack: Truth in our time


The Chattanooga Times Free Press proposes:

Clay Bennett: Polygraph


And from the Salt Lake Tribune:

Pat Bagley: Murdering the Truth


The crowning glory from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Mike Luckovich: Stovepipe tinfoil hat


And another take on the presidential mouthpiece from the Lexington Herald-Leader:

Joel Pett: Incendiary statement flameout


More of the same from the Sacramento Bee:

Jack Ohman: Sean Spicer: To Tell The Alt-Truth. . .


And still more, this time from the Indianapolis Star:

Gary Varvel: Press secretary Sean Spicer’s alternative facts


From the Tulsa World, taking it to the next level:

Bruce Plante: Alternative Fact


And in its rudimentary form, via the San Diego Union-Tribune:

Steve Breen: Waiting for the Blue Fairy


From the Kansas City Star, our penultimate graphic:

Lee Judge: Making his priority clear


And, for this old journalist, the perfect conclusion, via the Baton Rouge Advocate:

Walt Handelsman: If Walter Cronkite were still reporting
