Weekend comments by a Trump Administration adviser may be what's prompting people to pick up a novel they likely read in high school.

FOX's Lisa Lacerra reports: 

Sales soaring for George Orwell's book '1984', possibly because of the comments made by President Donald Trump's adviser Kellyanne Conway on 'Meet the Press' last Sunday on attendance at the inauguration:

(Conway) "You're saying it's a falsehood and they're giving Sean Spicer, our Press Secretary, gave alternative facts to that... Wait a minute, alternative facts?"

The novel written in 1949 describes a society where facts are distorted and suppressed in a language called "newspeak" designed to meet the ideological needs of the controlling party where citizens are under constant surveillance and where independent thinking is called thought crime monitored by the thought police.

'1984' in the top three on Amazon's best seller's list as of Tuesday evening.
