The schism between reality and what Kellyanne Conway once called, “alternative facts,” has been prolific in this administration, but the Republican National Convention takes the cake. Across the country, 180,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, and in a Kenosha, Wis., a police officer shot Jacob Blake seven times in the back, followed by days of rioting and a 17-year-old “Blue Lives Matter” vigilante killing two people. None of that was apparent at the convention, however, as Vice President Mike Pence declared that America will never be safe under a Biden Presidency. Wow: alternative facts indeed!
