If Facebook is a reliable indicator, that's exactly what's happening. E.g.
in a meme, George says, "I cannot tell a lie... but, perhaps I can interest
you in an alternative fact."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
