Stephen King strikes again. It’s no secret that the horror novelist isn’t exactly a fan of the current president. King often takes to Twitter to poke fun at and insult Trump, which resulted in him getting blocked by the POTUS on Twitter last month.
Although King is blocked from viewing or responding to Trump’s tweets, he can still tweet about him. Most recently, he turned one of Trump’s favorite phrases against him in a particularly scathing tweet. The phrase in question? “Fake news.” Only this time King didn’t call out Fox News or Breitbart as fake news. He referred to the president himself as fake.
The news is real. The president is fake.

“The news is real. The president is fake,” King tweeted.
Ouch. But that isn’t the only clever burn the author has hurled at Trump. On Thursday, he tweeted this:
Molly, aka the Thing of Evil, visits the corpses of her beachball victims. She has her jaws on yet another one. She's bigly evil. SAD! pic.twitter.com/pG5202j6eB

There’s more anti-Trump vitriol from King. Here’s a small sampling:
Happy 4th of July, all you Twitters, here and elsewhere. I love my country; it's just the president that makes me want to blow lunch.

Let's be clear: Trump's "fake news" obsession is about HONEST news coverage that is unfavorable to him. Pandering to his shrinking base.

The viciousness of Trump's tweets is disturbing, the pettiness perhaps more so. This guy is not cut out for the main stage.

The president is a hurtful, bullying, boorish, ridiculous, undignified, childish asshat. And it hurts to say that.

Do you think the Founding Fathers foresaw a narcissistic liar like Donald Trump? I somehow doubt it.
