Stephen King: Trump ‘Can’t Spell, Can’t Read’

Author of horror, Stephen King recently took to Twitter to insult President Donald Trump and accused the commander in chief of being illiterate and claimed he ranks as the dumbest of world leaders, Breitbart reports.

Late Friday King wrote President Trump “Can’t spell, can’t read, has never managed anything approaching an original thought. His brain is like a radio playing at top volume, but between stations.” The author also wrote that it’s “hard to believe there was ever a world leader as dumb as Donald Trump.”

Earlier this week, King recently called Trump a “horror show” and revealed that he would be voting for any candidate that the Democrats nominate for president.

King regularly uses Twitter as a way to air his political opinions to his 5 million followers, most recently using it to call the the president  a “horse’s ass” and a “vile, racist, and incompetent bag of guts.” As a result, he has become a hero among the progressive left.

However the author faced a backlash from the progressive woke when in January he dared to suggest artists should focus on quality more than diversity. The public and prominent media figures called his comments “backward and ignorant.”
