Conway compares 'alternative facts' comment to Oscars flub

President Trump's top aide Kellyanne Conway said everyone makes mistakes, appearing to compare her comments about "alternative facts" to the error made during this year's Oscars.

“Well, it was alternative information and additional facts. And that got conflated," she said during an interview on "CBS Sunday Morning," when asked to explain what alternative facts are.

"... I see mistakes on TV every single day and people just brush them off," she continued. "Everybody thinks it’s just so funny that the wrong — the wrong movie was, you know, heralded as the winner of the Oscars," she continued.

"You say 'Oh well that's just all in good fun. Things happen.' Well things happen to everyone."
 
Conway in January said White House press secretary Sean Spicer had provided "alternative facts" to reporters during his first briefing, when he railed against the media for its coverage of the crowd sizes at Trump's inauguration ceremony.
 
“You’re saying it’s a falsehood. And they’re giving, Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that,” Conway said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” at the time.

Host Chuck Todd fired back at Conway over her comments at the time.
 
“Look, alternative facts are not facts,” Todd said. "They're falsehoods."
 
During the Oscars last weekend, the winner for best picture was incorrectly announced as "La La Land," though "Moonlight" actually won.
