Nothing but the facts

 ..
..

Dear editor: Alternative facts — more precisely, the facts — are now what we say they are.

There is no ban on refugees; you say there is a ban!
I never discussed U.S. sanctions with the Russian ambassador, and if I did I don’t remember. Well, on second thought I gave “incomplete information” to my superiors.
I am abandoning my promise on electoral reform in the best interests of Canada. That’s what Canadians elected me for.
A St. John’s Liberal MP speaking to the CBC would have you believe that Justin Trudeau kept his promise on electoral reform. (We’re not all mental midgets Nick Whalen, but nice try. White House press secretary Sean Spicer would be proud of you.)
I never had any help drafting my notes — no! No! No! The deleted BlackBerry messages — jaw-dropping!
The province of Newfoundland and Labrador has to return to Ottawa tens of millions of dollars in HST overpayments over and above what was budgeted. The differential is a secret. Shhh! No need to tell the public. (The very first point of the five-point Liberal Stronger Tomorrow campaign: restoring openness, transparency and accountability.)
I would like to help the people of St. Brendan’s isle with their ferry service in my role as MHA, but the mayor, well, she never supported me in the 2015 election. No apology necessary. (Thanks anyway, Colin Holloway.)
From the White House, to the prime minister, to an MP, to MHAs, to a police officer, these are our leaders who communicate to us daily. Who exactly should we be telling our youth to look up to anyway?
Just sayin’.
