2018 goes 1984: The creepy factor

At the January 4 2018 White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders press briefing, the floor was turned immediately over to the President. Trump was beamed onto giant television screens next to Sanders ..he spoke about corporations' patriotism in giving bonuses to employees after the 2017 tax cuts were passed late December..

The moment was surprisingly surreal, with Sanders expressionless face suddenly becoming seemingly motivated by the creepiness of it. Her lips turned down, her eyes gleamed with awareness... the press was quiet as they watched the President on the screens. 

The moment was captured in this photo..

Trump delivering a statement on the economy, at the beginning of a news conference in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, DC, USA, 04 January 2018.

The President has been faced with a horrid week.. A book out called FIRE AND FURY has solidified that.. claims in the book have shaken the White House.. too voluminous to mention, but including tales that Melania wept election night, that Trump tries to bed friends' wives, that most in the inner circle believe Trump is not capable of putting sentences together, and that they had three television sets installed in the White House ... and that he retires to his bedroom around 6:30 to eat cheeseburgers and watch the TVs while perusing his Twitter account on this phone.  Insanity ..

Add to the mix? Giant screens of the President speaking to the masses.
Very 1984.
