Yesterday we told you how author Stephen King tweeted that “Mr. Putin has made a serious miscalculation” and that “he forgot he’s no longer dealing with Trump.”
ICYMI, here’s that tweet again:
Mr. Putin has made a serious miscalculation.
He forgot he's no longer dealing with Trump.

How’d that work out for the people of Ukraine?

Weird. This never happened under Trump:
Here is a map of all the verified Russian attacks on Ukraine as of 3:30 am last night. Just a reminder that just a day and a half ago, Putin was claiming he was just sending in “peacekeeping” forces to defend the area circled in yellow. pic.twitter.com/f7byy9WARK

Anyway, King followed up yesterday’s moronic take with one that’s even worse, if you can believe it.
Now he’s arguing that Russia, with its thousands of nuclear warheads, is like the proverbial playground bully and that the little kids might take a few blows while fighting back but it’s the right thing to do:
What most of us learned as kids on the playground: You don't stand by while a big kid beats up a little kid. You might take a punch or two making the big kid stop, but that's the right thing to do.

Does King actually believe this bulls*it?
This bullshit where a boomer explains complex shit in terms of "What most of us learned as kids on the playground…" really shows how little understanding they feel they need to have before lecturing on "the right thing to do." https://t.co/PAMWKIvOQn

And is he volunteering to go defend Ukraine?

War is good now, apparently:
It's weird how Democrats only think war is good when a Democrat is in power. https://t.co/vJEN46GD7f

Nope. They never will:
Can these people ever admit, when they're wrong? https://t.co/3FGy87bytz
