Well, He Just Did It, and Now He's Pulling the Plug on Himself!
No, Stephen King. Don't do it. Stay in the light. Stay away from the shadows. Think about the children! Niume bloggers are begging you to go above and beyond the horror, sticking with it and not losing hope.... Don't lose hope. (SNIFF)
We get it, though. It's shocking when you predict something, much to your own horror. It's no secret that Stephen King has been completely against Donald Trump being President, so much so that he even posted to his 2.5MM followers the actual plot line of his "newest horror story" about Trump actually becoming President. It was a simple start:
"Once upon a time, there was a man named Donald Trump, and he ran for president. Some people wanted him to win."
loading...Now that's a HORROR STORY, especially to some late-night talk show hosts and a certain crazy pop star. We understand completely. The fact that King practically predicted it against all odds (seriously, no one saw this coming), we can understand the master of horror practically shutting down his Twitter, at least for the time being.
Check out one of his last tweets. Savor it for as long as you can. We hope you come back soon, King. We hope. Maybe in four years.
No more book recommendations, politics, or amusing dog pictures for the immediate future. I'm shutting down.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) November 9, 2016
