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.
Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don. Sounds heavenly to me.

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

You know, I've been a fan of yours since I was in high school and read Christine for the first time. Now, I just feel sorry for you; so full of hate and for what?

Wow. Real classy folks. “When they go low we go high.” Right? 🙄

Stephen we can get you a room at the nearest psychiatric hospital. Based on your tweets you surely could use a month or two. pic.twitter.com/4EIrk8ttm5

Must be miserable to have your president in your head 24/7. Is it really enjoyable for you to be so hateful all the time? Doesn't it get old??

How precious. Another loving, compassionate tolerant liberal. So full of love and grace.

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.
