We’re surprised it hadn’t happened already.
We’re talking about President Donald Trump blocking Stephen King on Twitter. Tuesday, the best-selling author from Bangor feigned disappointment that the Donald has decided to bar him from seeing his tweets.
Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) June 13, 2017
Considering how often King has criticized Trump on Twitter, it’s not that surprising that the president is blocking the author. King, who received the National Medal of Arts from Barack Obama in 2015, joins a growing number of Twitter users who say they’ve been blocked by Trump.
But no worries. “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling said she’ll keep an eye on the president for King.
I still have access. I'll DM them to you. https://t.co/MhibEYDBTg— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) June 13, 2017
Here are just a few examples of King’s tweets about the commander-in-chief.
Our idiotic president seems to have confused what's "politically correct" with what is "unconstitutional."— Stephen King (@StephenKing) June 5, 2017
Just when you think Trump cannot possibly do anything more stupid than gun-running to the Saudis, he pulls out of the Paris Accords. OMG!— Stephen King (@StephenKing) June 1, 2017
Trump's been president 4 months today. Seems like 4 years.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) May 20, 2017
Trump releases classified info to the Russians. Not fake news; not liberal bias. Folks, HE'S DOING THIS TO HIMSELF.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) May 15, 2017
The world was a relatively stable place when Obama left office, but look at us now. Macho posturing by President Forrest Trump.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) April 14, 2017
