Stephen King Responds To Trump’s Hillary Tweet Like Only A Horror Genius Would


President Trump has already proven that he has no qualms about sharing violent GIFs on Twitter. It was only a couple months ago when he tweeted a GIF of him body-slamming a person who had the CNN logo superimposed over the face.

On Sunday, Trump took his penchant for violent video clips to a new level when he retweeted a GIF that had been edited to look like he was hitting a golf ball at Hillary Clinton and knocking her over.

Trump’s retweet was not particularly well-received, and author Stephen King joined the group of people criticizing the president for joking about harming his former opponent.

King tweeted on Sunday afternoon:

‘Trump thinks hitting a woman with a golf ball and knocking her down is funny. Myself, I think it indicates a severely f*cked-up mind.’

Since it was posted, a number of King’s followers have commented on the above tweet and let him know that they agree with his assessment of the president.

This is not the first time that King has questioned Trump’s mental state. In May, the author said that Trump’s behavior was representative of someone with narcissistic personality disorder.

‘Trump’s tweets in his first hundred days draw a pretty clear portrait: he’s almost textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder.

‘That this guy has his finger on the nuclear trigger is worse than any horror story I ever wrote.’

Those are pretty harsh words, especially considering the fact that King has written quite a few horrifying things over the past few decades.

Trump actually blocked King on Twitter about a month after he suggested that Trump suffers from narcissistic personality disorder. When King found out about and responded to the news that he’d been blocked by the president, he didn’t seem to be particularly torn up about it.

‘Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself.’

King may have been blocked, but that clearly hasn’t stopped him from seeing the immature and troubling things Trump is sharing on Twitter.
