Stephen King just keeps steppin’ in it.
Maybe the “King of Horror” should just stick to writing fiction because clearly this whole tweeting politics thing just isn’t his strong point.
What, did he think if he said something smug and pretentious in a kinder and gentler way it wouldn’t piss people off?
I say this gently and kindly: If you voted for Trump and still think he's doing a good job, you haven't been paying attention.

@StephenKing Were you paying attention the previous eight years?

And seriously, to accuse Trump supporters of not paying attention for a few months when Obama supporters didn’t pay attention for eight long years?

Trump voters weren’t about to allow King to talk down to them:
@StephenKing We wanted a strong leader who we know is actually for Americans and our values.

@StephenKing If literally doing what he promised during the election instead of other politicians lying…than I am proud to be a American.

@StephenKing So you haven't been paying attention, Stephen.

@StephenKing And then the friends dog-piled the little girl. Because reasons. Maybe the cannibal clown spider wasn't the real bad guy.

@StephenKing How about stick to writing books. A lot of us who " aren't paying attention " buy your books……oh I mean Used To Buy Your Books

@StephenKing i've never read one of your books, seen one of your movies and I could care less to hear your opinions

@StephenKing I thought you threw a hissy fit and quit social media? Stick to writing, Sparky. We don't care about your political views.

Gosh, this went well.
Maybe Stephen needs to pay more attention to who his readers are (or were)?
