Stephen King Tweets Anti-Trump Riddle Like A Boss; Goes Viral In Seconds


Since Donald Trump won the 2016 election, a number of creative metaphors for his presidency have been introduced. One of the best, though, came today from esteemed author Stephen King.

King took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to let his 3.07 million followers know exactly how he feels about the country’s 45th president. King wrote:

‘With President Forrest Trump, every day is like a rancid box of chocolates. You never know what kind of sh*t you’re going to get next.’

Although hilarious, King’s comparison of Trump to the fictional character Forrest Gump really is not much of an exaggeration. Trump has been president for less than three months, and nearly every day of his presidency has brought on a new scandal, an unconstitutional executive order, or an embarrassing faux pas.

Even when Trump takes a break from tweeting or making dangerous policy proposals, members of his administration are quick to pick up the slack. For example, on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made a statement so insensitive and inaccurate that many have called for him to lose his job.

During a press briefing, Spicer tried to emphasize how dangerous Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is by comparing him to Adolph Hitler. He told reporters:

‘We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.’

Shortly after his “Forrest Trump” tweet, the King of Horror moved on to criticizing Spicer, and his “lazy ignorance.”

King has long been critical of President Trump and his administration. Lat month, King mocked Trump for accusing President Obama — with absolutely no evidence to back up his claims — of “wiretapping” his phones.

Even before Trump was inaugurated, King was taunting him on Twitter, calling his response to Meryl Streep’s comments about him during the Golden Globes “childish, churlish, [and] petulant.” King also said that it was because of this behavior that so many Americans found him “emtoionally [sic] unqualified.”

Trump certainly has proven multiple times that he is emotionally unqualified to be President, as has his staff. It’s only a matter of time before he lashes out at King — the way he has with so many others — for daring to critique him.
