The king of American horror has words for the supporters of Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, and after this tongue lashing, you can believe that Trump will be firing up his legal team. Beloved author, Stephen King has had multiple novels turned into cult classic films like Pet Sematary, IT, The Green Mile, Misery, The Shawshank Redemption, and Christine, to name a few.
King is used to being an oddball, and thrives on being one of the creepiest people to ever bless the arts. What he isn’t used to, however, is the sad excuse for a Republican presidential candidate who is literally ripping the country apart. King had some choice words for the people who follow Trump. King said this via his Twitter page:
Trump voters, please think again. Sure, you’re mad. I get that. But you don’t burn down the house because you don’t like the decor.

We all understand that some Trump supporters are just normal people who are fed up with the status quo, because believe me, we all are. But that is no reason to completely lose all sense of logic and dignity by backing such a racist, misogynistic coward. What will they do when Trump puts the country in debt because he gold-plated the entire White House? They will somehow blame it on Hillary, hell, maybe even Obama.
Maybe there is no getting to his mindless followers who simply cannot be convinced of things that are right in front of them, but Stephen King seems to think it’s worth a shot. One thing he is not down for is a leader who incites violence and hatred into the hearts of people who are just sick of struggling while government bigwigs get richer.
So, how they don’t see the impending doom, I’ll never know.
