Horror novelist, Hollywood designer, and profane critic of President Donald Trump Stephen King says he’s “pulling for Elizabeth Warren” and hopes to start to see the presidential candidate “open a sizable can of whup-ass on Trump in the debates.”
“I’ll support and work for just about any Democrat who wins the nomination, but I’m pulling for Elizabeth Warren,” the Finders Keepers author wrote on the eve of the Iowa caucuses.
“I’d wish to see her available a large can of whup-ass on Trump in the debates,” King added.
The Outsiders author has an extended history of publicly expressing his disdain for the president, even threatening to “use all my might” to oust his congressman, Rep. Jared Golden (D-ME), in the event of the lawmaker voting and only just one single article of impeachment against the president alternatively than two – a move Golden finally made.
Likewise, King has called for voters to oust Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) over what he says is her impending vote to acquit the president.
“Republican Murkowski, not up for re-election, voted against witnesses. Republican Collins, up for re-election, voted for witnesses. Both will vote to acquit. It’s Moscow Mitch at his finest,” he said the other day. “Hey hey, ho ho, Susan Collins has to go.”
YOUR PET Semetary author has attacked the president on Twitter on numerous occasions, calling Trump a “horse’s ass” and “a vile, racist, and incompetent bag of guts and waters.”
In November, King told his 5.6 million Twitter followers that he felt like screaming, “Everyone knows that Trump is really as crooked as a broken nose so that as dumb as a fencepost. Just quit shitting around and get him the fuck out of there.”
Despite King’s public support for Warren, the existing RealClearPolitics average shows her trailing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Joe Biden (D), and Pete Buttigieg (D) in the Hawkeye Express prior to the highly-anticipated caucuses, which start Mon evening.
