1984 tops Amazon's charts as Trump continues to lie
Jan 26 2017
Comments by controversial White House adviser Kellyanne Conway have propelled George Orwell's classic novel, 1984, to become a top selling book on Amazon.
Members of the Trump team were quick to defend the low turnout to media, including White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer who declared on Saturday that "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration - period". And that sort of modern-day Newspeak is causing sales of George Orwell's dystopian "1984" to soar.
The attendance at President Donald Trump's inauguration was the topic of conversation for many over the weekend, namely that it wasn't quite as "packed" as the president claimed. Her interview was widely criticized and she was sub-tweeted by Merriam-Webster dictionary with a definition of the word fact.
Sales of Orwell's dark drama set in a totalitarian state have soared since Conway, a top aide to USA president Donald Trump, used the phrase "alternative truth" in an interview. But the spokesman said the spike seen this week has been unusually high. The Ministry of Plenty rations resources.
Since Conway's appearance on "Meet the Press", social media users were quick to draw comparisons. As of Tuesday morning, the bookwas ranked #6 on Amazon's hourly list, behind books like "Hillbilly Elegy", a memoir about growing up in America's Rust Belt, and the poetry collection "Milk and Honey".
It's J.D. Vance's "Hillbilly Elegy", widely touted as an introspective account of what life is like in Rust Belt towns and counties that turned out for Trump on Election Day.
