Stephen King Posts Horrible Tweet About Melania Trump While She’s Recovering From Kidney Surgery

This is just plain awful.

If you’ve spent any significant amount of time on social media platform Twitter, you’re well aware that horror author Stephen King is a radical liberal who seems to struggle deeply with recognizing when his comments are inappropriate, almost as if he doesn’t have a filter between his brain and his fingers.

He’s not been shy at all about attacking President Trump, who he seems to loathe with a passion, tweeting negative things about him on a daily basis.

Well, it seems King went just a bit too far with his latest attack on the Trump family, as he posted a rather vicious tweet about their marriage all while First Lady Melania Trump is recovering from kidney surgery.

Not cool. Not cool at all.

The horror author (who hasn’t written a good book in decades) took to Twitter on Monday to post a cruel and disgusting joke about first lady Melania Trump, who had just undergone emergency surgery for a kidney ailment — a surgery that will keep her in the hospital for a week.

“Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don,” King tweeted. “Sounds heavenly to me,” he wrote moments after the White House announced the surgery.

Other folks on Twitter had some strong opinions about King’s barb, and they weren’t exactly what you’d call agreeable:

Look, it’s not necessary to insult Mr. King’s work in order to point out that his views on politics leave much to be desired and are skewed far from how the real world works. It seems a little much to insinuate that many of the bestselling books he’s written over the last 10 years are all junk, just because his politics are terrible.

Having said that, his politics are terrible. This tweet shows a complete lack of empathy, an inability to relate to the basic human condition which goes far beyond our political beliefs and ideology. This is not at all what tolerance looks like.

Rather than focus on taking digs at the people we believe to be our enemies, we should be finding common ground, wishing each other well, helping one another. All King’s comments do is serve to further divide people at a time when we’re already so far part from each other.

America needs less of this kind of rhetoric.

CUOMO KAPUT! CNN Takes Bold Action After Anchor’s Unconscionable Behavior

CNN has had enough of their primetime star’s scurrilous behavior.

Published

on

The moral ambiguity of the mainstream media took a backseat this week, at least in one decision made by CNN, after primetime star Chris Cuomo was once again embroiled in an abhorrent scandal.

Cuomo, the younger brother of disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, had earlier been caught using his vast media resources in an effort to help the Empire State lawmaker plot a PR strategy to combat a scandal of his own:  Being credibly accused of sexually assaulting and harassing at least one dozen women, some of whom were employees of the governor at the time.

Now it has been revealed that the pundit also went so far as to contact some of his brother’s accusers, which was a step too far for CNN.

CNN has suspended prime time anchor Chris Cuomo “indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” after new documents revealed the cozy and improper nature of his relationship with aides to his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A second hour of “Anderson Cooper 360” aired in Cuomo’s place on Tuesday night. A town hall about Covid-19 will air Wednesday night.

Tuesday’s announcement about the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. Cuomo’s 9 p.m. program is frequently CNN’s most-watched hour of the day. He is a larger-than-life presence at the network. And he was determined to stay on TV this year despite a flurry of sexual misconduct allegations against his brother, which culminated in the governor’s resignation three months ago.

The network did not mince their words.

“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense,” a CNN spokesperson said Tuesday evening. “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions.”
“When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the spokesperson continued. “But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”
“However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew,” the spokesperson added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
There is no telling how long Cuomo could be sidelined, or if a return to CNN is even possible given what we know about the egregiousness of his actions.

CNN Opens Investigation into Chris Cuomo After Bombshell Revelation Drops

The network’s statement was highly unsatisfactory.

Published

Chris Cuomo

CNN’s primetime pairing of Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo is quite rare.  You see, nowhere else can you find two consecutive “infotainment” shows hosted by men of such shamelessness.

For those not in the know:  Don Lemon is facing allegations of ugly sexual harassment in which the host was purported to have stuffed his hand down his pants and then asked a man to smell his fingers, complete with a threatening inquisition as to what sort of genitalia that man prefers.

Chris Cuomo, who had previously been criticized for using his media resources to help craft a PR strategy for his grope-y ex-governor of a brother, is now facing another similarly distasteful accusation.

CNN host Chris Cuomo used his sources in the media world to seek information on women who accused his brother Andrew Cuomo, then the governor of New York, of sexual harassment, according to documents released Monday by the New York Attorney General’s Office.

While Chris Cuomo has previously acknowledged advising his brother and his team on the response to the scandals, the records show that his role in helping the then-governor was much larger and more intimate than previously known.

And the act was blatant.

Chris Cuomo was actively in touch with Melissa DeRosa, who was the then-governor’s top aide, about incoming media reports that detailed alleged sexual harassment by Andrew Cuomo, according to exhibits from the Attorney General’s probe and a transcript of his interview with the state’s investigators. He also lobbied to help the governor’s office as it sought to weather the storm of accusations, and he dictated statements for the then-governor to use.

“Please let me help with the prep,” Chris Cuomo said to DeRosa in one message in early March. Then, three days after the New York Times reported in March about how Andrew Cuomo attempted to kiss a woman, Anna Ruch, in an unwanted advance at a wedding, Chris Cuomo texted DeRosa: “I have a lead on the wedding girl.”

CNN, whose very existence is dependent upon editorialized knee-jerk reactions suggested that they’d need a few days to assess the situation before casting any sort of castigation in Cuomo’s direction.
