Unless you missed the U.S. presidential inauguration, and its aftermath, then you're probably familiar with the term "alternative facts" as coined by president Donald Trump's counselor, Kellyanne Conway. 

But, just in case you're not, here's a recap. 

In his first meeting with the press in the official capacity as press secretary to the president for the U.S., Sean Spicer criticized the media for reporting the inauguration's relatively small turnout. He falsely claimed that it "was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration – period."

The U.S. and international media had already widely reported images and statistics that showed the blatant inaccuracy of Spicer's claim. But, when Kellyanne Conway, Trump's counselor, was pressed by CNN in an interview about the statement, she simply said Spicer was giving "alternative facts."

Arabs, who are all too familiar with the concept, quickly took to social media to critique and hilariously mock the bizarre new term.
