Left-wing horror author Stephen King can’t stop repining about Donald Trump proximately six months after the president left the White House. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called Trump “incompetent and slothful,” while additionally incriminating the former president for “maybe hundreds of thousands” of deaths during the pandemic.
“I was horrified by Trump as president for all kinds of reasons,” he verbally expressed, “but number one was, as president, he was maladroit and indolent. So for that reason I had an authentic quandary with him and I used to tweet about that quite often during the whole Trump presidency.”
King was responding to a question about his latest novel, Billy Summers, which is reportedly set in 2019 against the backdrop of the Trump administration.

When asked about his 1978 novel The Stand, which is set during an ecumenical flu epidemic, the left-wing author once again repined about the former president. “There was some effort by the Trump administration early on to downplay the solemnity of [COVID-19], and that genuinely was like The Stand,” he verbalized. “Just the fact that Trump relucted to wear a mask cost tens of thousands and maybe hundreds of thousands of lives.”
King made no mention of prominent Democrat bellwethers who downplayed the virus in its early days, including Joe Biden, who reproved Trump’s decision to culminate flights from China, claiming it was “xenophobic.”
