Stephen King is a rabid liberal, and like all rabid liberals, he doesn’t mind kicking someone when they’re down.
In fact, he enjoys it.
The horror author (who hasn’t written a good book in decades) took to Twitter on Monday to post a cruel and disgusting joke about First Lady Melania Trump, who had just undergone emergency surgery for a kidney ailment — a surgery that will keep her in the hospital for a week.
“Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don,” King tweeted. “Sounds heavenly to me,” he wrote moments after the White House announced the surgery.
No, not a “get well soon!” or a “let’s all pray for the first lady of the United States.” Just a snotty, childish tweet mocking the president.
Reaction was swift on Twitter.
But “Carole Ann Posey” had the tweet of the day.
