Are you prepared for major eye-rolling? Yes? Good.
Stephen King is portraying President Donald Trump as the big bad wolf, claiming he is ‘worse than any horror story [he’s] written.’
First of all, Stephen King really isn’t even all that great of a writer. Let’s just get that out of the way. His work is mediocre at best. Example: he wrote a story about a killer clown, in which a group of CHILDREN have an orgy, with only one girl in the mix.
Can you say disturbed? Yet he claims Donald Trump is the scary monster….yeah, okay.
Acclaimed horror author Stephen King has said Donald Trump’s access to nuclear weapons is “worse than any story” he has written.
President Trump has disturbed many by ramping up the rhetoric surrounding nuclear weapons since taking office. Psychiatrists have suggested Mr Trump shows symptoms of having a “dangerous mental illness”.
Mr King, author of The Shining and Dead Zone, apparently agreed with this sentiment.
Mr King has been a staunch critic of Mr Trump, particularly regarding his lack of financial transparency.
“Trump’s tweets in his first hundred days draw a pretty clear portrait: he’s an almost textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder,” King tweeted, “That this guy has his finger on the nuclear trigger is worse than any horror story I ever wrote.”

Then earlier today, he continued his rant. He tweeted, “It’s impossible to watch HBO’s CHERNOBYL without thinking of Donald Trump; like those in charge of the doomed Russian reactor, he’s a man of mediocre intelligence in charge of great power–economic, global–that he does not understand.”

This is not the first time he has criticized Trump though. In April he said, “Come on, chickens***, if you’re man enough to drop a mega-bomb on Afghanistan, you should be man enough to release your tax returns.”
He was almost among the other elites who signed a letter that opposed the president during the last election.
Perhaps King should stick to writing and keep his grungy nose out of politics.
