What Should We Call The Right Wing Fox News Alternate Universe? Any Ideas?

When I talk to my Trump friend, and he says something that isn't true, I say "only in the alternate universe". For instance: When he says "Trump got more votes than Hillary, but there was massive voter fraud" I say only in the alternate universe.

I think we should name this Right Wing Fantasyland so the pundits on TeeVee can tell the bald faced liars "Only in the alternate universe" when they say something like "trickle down always works". They don't have the courage to call them liars.

Let's think of a name.

I'll get started.

Foxworld

Alternate Universe

Upside Down World

Any suggestions?

22. I've made up my mind to just go with "Foxworld".

When a right-wing nutjob hits me with some of their crazy-assed stuff, I'm just going to nod earnestly and say, "Well yeah, in Foxworld, but I'm talking about the real world."

When they persist, I'll just look at them, slowly shaking my head in incredulity, and say, "Wow. You really do believe that stuff."

Maybe over time it might have an effect, especially in a group setting that includes rational people - like, say, a group of co-workers having drinks after work. But I'm not getting my hopes up.
