Kellyanne Conway announced her upcoming memoir on Thursday and received a sharp reminder of her most brazen moments while serving as senior White House counselor to former President Donald Trump.
“Here’s The Deal” — due out on May 24 — will be an “open and vulnerable account” of Conway’s “journey all the way to the White House and beyond,” according to promotional material.

Critics, though, recalled Conway’s penchant for “alternative facts,” her downplaying of the COVID-19 pandemic, her infamous “Bowling Green massacre” comment and the many, many, many times she cynically tried to spin away the chaos that engulfed Trump’s presidency.
Filed under Fiction, Alternative Facts, or in the toilet paper aisle?

Will it be in the Fiction:Mystery section?

Full of alternative facts, found in the fiction section.

So it's fiction?

Oh look, a “memoir” written by the alternative facts lady. Look for it in the fiction section, folks.

Hard pass; I'm not reading any fiction these days until our democracy is no longer threatened by the sociopath you enabled for four nightmarish years.

I would love to read a successful woman's story like this, but from someone who doesn't freely use alternative facts.
See, the problem is nobody knows if your entire book is made of alternative facts, do they?
You reap what you sow.

Is it about the Bowling Green massacre?

I'd rather read the ingredients on a cereal box; at least those words are somewhat factual.

Oooh. Taking a shot at fiction, I see

$30 is an awful lot for toilet paper

Here’s what the book jacket says : “Early on, Kellyanne learns that abandoning morals and ethics is the most direct path to success, and seizes on them to create a fact free name for herself.”
