Reporter Stunned By What She Spotted On Trump's Desk (Photos)

New President Trump’s recent phone calls to world leaders, including Russia’s Vladimir Putin, were witnessed by the media in a fish bowl-like reporting event in early February. Trump sat at his Oval Office desk, which was covered with papers, and spoke on the phone.

But unless you were a lip reader, you had no idea what was being said on these calls. The only thing the press could really talk about was Trump’s demeanor and the glass of soda on ice on the desk.

Many commenters noted it seemed almost comical to see Trump through the glass, almost a circus-like feel.

Of note, Trump was not in the Oval Office alone, but the only people who heard his side of the phone calls were a few top aides. Those in the Oval Office for the calls included Vice President
Pence, press secretary Sean Spicer, national security adviser Michael Flynn, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon.

During this session, Trump made four other phone calls besides the call to Putin. The calls were to the leaders of Japan, France, Australia and Germany.

Several media sources suggested that Trump’s call to the German Chancellor was probably not the easiest of the calls. Trump has been critical of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policies permitting millions of Syrian refugees into Germany. Trump has not been shy about expressing his fears of terrorists sneaking in with the Syrian refugees in the past.

Although the media enjoyed a nice ring-side seat to Trump’s phone calls, the only real entertainment was watching his mouth, hands and head move, and they were left with no real idea about the phone calls.

In terms of the setting, when Trump spoke on the phone in the Oval Office, shadows played on the wall behind him and the entire scene seen through the glass windows produced an eerie look. As several commentators noted, watching Trump reach out to the world as he sat in a fish bowl-like office was almost like a scene from some kind of surreal, Twilight Zone-like comedy show.
