Stephen King, famed horror writer, and filmmaker, recently stated that because Donald Trump banned him from viewing his Twitter account that he is banning him from seeing movies being released based on his writings.
Donald Trump blocked me on Twitter. I am hereby blocking him from seeing IT or MR. MERCEDES. No clowns for you, Donald. Go float yourself.

The remake of IT, about a clown named Pennywise who kills children in the town of Derry every 30 days, is set to release later this week. Before being banned by Trump, King had taken several shots at the President via the same medium.
Donald Trump: There hasn't been a novelty act this annoying since Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Oh, look! A rabid coyote with bad hair won the South Carolina primary! Please clap!

And that’s not all. These are all but a few of the tweets against the POTUS. Once even comparing him to Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter book series.
One difference between Nixon and Trump: when the Republicans nominated Nixon, they didn't actually KNOW he was a crook.

Populist demagogues like He Who Must Not Be Named aren't a new thing; see THE DEAD ZONE, published 37 years ago.

The more I read about and listen to Donald Trump, the more appalled I am. Not as a Democrat; as a human being. A genuinely nasty man.

Again, this is just a few of the verbal attacks against President Donald Trump by Stephen King. You can’t really blame him for blocking the guy, can you?
