When Donald Trump was being sworn in as president on Inauguration Day, about 200,000 people were on hand to watch it take place. Trump and his team have denied the reported number, with Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway giving a questionable explanation on Sunday morning.

Conway mocked

While taking part in an interview for NBC's "Meet the Press," Kellyanne Conway got into a heated exchange with host Chuck Todd. Todd quickly focused on the reaction to the low crowd numbers by Donald Trump and Sean Spicer, who both accused the media of promoting false information.

As the conversation became tense, Conway told Todd he was being "dramatic," and that Spicer was just presenting "alternative facts." The term was quickly shot down by Todd, and has since been mocked across social media. As seen on various Twitter feeds on January 22, some top celebrities were quick to poke fun at the former Trump campaign manager.

"Kellyanne Conway now refers to their lies as 'alternative facts,'" actor George Takei wrote on Twitter, before adding, "We get it. War is peace, freedom is slavery, Trump is presidential." "#alternativefacts is perhaps the greatest Real Housewives term I have ever heard," Bravo TV host Andy Cohen wrote, while noting, "I can't believe we haven't heard it on a reunion."

"As a member of the @backstreetboys, I had a love child with @BettyMWhite," former N'Sync member Lance Bass posted, while using the hashtag, "#AlternativeFacts." "I stuck an extension cord in my gas tank so now my car is electric," actor Tommy Campbell wrote with humor, also using the "#AlternativeFacts" hashtag.

Actress and former talk show host Rosie O'Donnell also got into the action on Twitter, and continued her bashing of Donald Trump and his administration.


Dictionary clarification

As Kellyanne Conway continued to come under fire for her use of the term "alternative facts," even Merriam-Webster had to give their thoughts.

On the dictionary's Twitter page, the post mocking Conway reads, "A fact is a piece of information presented as having objective reality."

While Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, and his administration continued to clash the media, it doesn't look like it will slow down anytime soon. With the former host of "The Apprentice" now in the White House, it appears the division between the left and right is only getting started.
