Trump is getting roasted online for this BIZARRE Wizard of Oz-style stunt
Have you ever taken US President Donald Trump to be a fan of the classics of cinema? No, we haven’t either.
But the former reality star’s latest press conference suggests he might be.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was explaining the President’s ‘economic agenda’ to a packed press room when she abruptly announced she would be welcoming a message from a ‘special guest’ – the Don himself.
Yet despite reportedly being just a two-minute walk away, Trump appeared via a pair of television screens either side of Sanders, delivering a pre-recorded message. Obviously, this meant he would not field questions from reporters for his statements.
The strange stunt of course paved the way for people to have fun on social media, with many comparing the moment to the Wizard of Oz’s famous, “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” line, as well as George Orwell’s 1984.
Many have been photoshopping random figures into the footage of Trump’s twin television setup, with even Wario making an appearance, while others have incorporated gifs of dancing Chris Christies and absurd Donald lookalikes.
