Sign reads: Please pick up your dog's alternative facts.
Didn’t Berkeley Breathed do a couple of strips like this a few weeks ago?
I always carry a bag for my dog’s. Need a street sweeper and a belly dump for the new inhabitants of the swamp.
That’s where Bannon gets his ideas to pass on to the POTUS.
As dumb as …..
The funny thing is his dog is named Kellyanne……..BTW, this is great one Wiley….Well played…..
The dumpster supporters should start chiming in soon.
Perhaps I should point out that this cartoon was penned four weeks ago, the day after Kellyanne Conway famously uttered it. This is when I really miss the immediacy of editorial cartooning.
That is all you are going to get from the current administration.
There aren’t bag big enough to pick up after the next 4 years
This will be an interesting new entry in Roget’s.
Thar be a big pile of alternate “facts” around.
Wiley, you’ve got it wrong – “Alternative Facts” are those piles bull’s drop. What dogs drop is simply a pile of Trump.

Wonder if an upcoming Simpsons episode will have Bart (or Conway!) writing on the blackboard 1000 times, “Alternative facts are lies.”
Love you, Wiley!!!!!
Anyone who has ever been in a relationship should be able to understand exactly what “alternative facts” are, and how commonly they appear.
That being so, please do not draw any conclusions about my attitude toward POTUS.
Alternative Facts are nothing but Elephant Excrement! Real men and women embrace real facts.
Like Hillary embraced her alternative facts and Brian Williams embraced his alternative facts right up until the were pointed out as “false facts”?
They’re not real men and women… ☺
Yet ironically that ground is made for those deposits, our corpses are made to enrich the soil. But we being able to ignore Nature hold back.
The Republicans are not really lying about the basic ideals on which they base their political philosophy. In order to be genuinely lying, you have to not believe it yourself. In the alternate universe created by Faux news, Rush Limbaugh, etc, the lies have been repeated so often, and by so many people that they are actually believing themselves now. This is “truthiness” — Colbert’s word, meaning that what is self evident when you use your mind is less important than what you know in your gut. You believe your gut, not your mind, because you don’t like what you know with your mind. The problem with using your gut for thinking instead of your brain is that the products of the two organs become virtually identical.

Real fact: I fear my government more than I fear terrorists.
This is what Donald Trump’s alternative facts smells like.
Timing notwithstanding, VERY nicely not-said!
Better than alternative crap…
Ever since Trump became POTUS, this term seem to be gaining popularity.
