CNN host Brian Stelter slammed President Donald Trump over the so-called Sharpiegate scandal from the past week, comparing the fiasco to a line from the dystopian novel 1984 by George Orwell.

“The less you believe real reporting, the more you might fall for his [Trump’s] unreality,” Stelter warned during a segment of his Sunday show Reliable Sources. “So that when he says two plus two is five, you’ll believe him.” Displaying a quote from 1984 on the screen, Stelter explained his reference to the classic dystopian novel.

The 1984 excerpt referenced by Stelter reads: “In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it.”

“It’s a book that came to mind this week as Trump tried to convince people that his faulty [Hurricane] Dorian forecast was right,” the host said. Asking, “where will this end,” Stelter criticized Trump for making a “daily attempt to deny reality” and “destroy trust in media.” He accused the president of “manipulating the levers of government to make a lie retroactively true.”

On September 1, Trump inaccurately claimed on Twitter that Alabama was among the states “most likely to be hit (much) harder than anticipated” by Hurricane Dorian. In response to the president’s warning, the National Weather Service (NWS) in Birmingham, Alabama, tweeted later: “Alabama will NOT see any impacts from Dorian. We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east.”
