Jimmy Fallon is a nice guy — perhaps too nice, sometimes — but he has invented a new parlor game inspired by Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway: “Two Truths and An Alternative Fact.”

Demonstrating how the game works, the Tonight Show host used Conway herself as an example, along with Shake Shack, Jeff Sessions, Qdoba Restaurants, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, and of course Conway’s colleague Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary who presents an alternative fact to the American public several times a day.

Doug Mastriano is a QAnon conspiracy theorist and January 6 insurrectionist who this week won the Republican nomination for Pennsylvania governor. Mastriano is also anti-Muslim: He previously shared an image with the words, “Stop Islam” and a post claiming that “the American People have a right to be fearful of the prospect of a large number of muslims being elected to congress, specifically if they practice Sharia law.”
