For decades, Stephen King has enjoyed a successful career as an author. But it wasn’t until he joined Twitter that we got a real glimpse at his true brilliance. Take today’s tweet about Ted Cruz’s facial hair, for example. Talk about a gem:
Ted Cruz's facial hair: It really puts the goat in goatee.

It takes a really thoughtful and creative mind to craft a tweet like that.
This is the best you have?

Hey, it managed to get under Ted Cruz’s skin, which is all that really matters, right? Oh, wait:
Mr. King, you’re a talented writer. May blessings abound for you and your family. May love overflow in your life. I Peter 3:9 https://t.co/2dgfIOrgIY

Zodiac claims another victim! Killing King with kindness is a surefire way to get under his skin.
Not only are you brilliant, Senator Cruz…as you displayed here, you are an absolute class act. #TexasProud

Cruz is far more generous than we would be. Based on his tweets, Stephen King isn’t all that talented when it comes to writing. He does, however, excel at beclowning himself. So props to him for that.
