Stephen King compares Trump to Cthulhu — and now Cthulhu is pissed

Published

on

In slamming Donald Trump, horror author Stephen King stirred up Twitter trouble with one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most horrific creations, the Huffington Post reported.

The online run-in was prompted by King joking on Twitter that per “reliable sources,” the GOP presidential nominee was actually the Great Old One in disguise.

“The absurd hairdo isn’t absurd at all,” King said. “It hides the tentacles.”

King’s quip summoned a response from the parody account @cthulhu4america, which scolded King saying, “Trump could barely hope to be 1/63 as great as I am if he weren’t such a buffoon.”

The response was attached to a statement saying in part, “You will not find me giving pneumonia to small children or being an impulsive firestarter. Those are the lesser evils to which I should never be compared. It is the end of watch for mankind and it is our aim to bury them in the dead zone.”

Writing on Twitter, Dr. Pritesh Gandhi argued that American schools are in no condition to reopen at the moment, especially given that the disease is still infecting tens of thousands of people every day.

"America is out of its mind thinking we are even remotely prepared for school this fall," wrote Gandhi, who earlier this year made an unsuccessful run for the Democratic nomination for the House of Representatives in Texas's 10th Congressional District. "We are definitely NOT ready & if people say we are, it's either out of ignorance or arrogance."

"Well, I don't. Is that even legal?" Thune replied. "I assume that's not something that you could do."

Bill Barr blatantly disregarded the rule of law in Roger Stone case by seeking ‘the president’s desired result’: former federal prosecutor

Published

on

In the federal criminal case the U.S. v. Stone, veteran GOP operative Roger Stone — a long-time ally of President Donald Trump — went from facing a U.S. Department of Justice recommendation of seven to nine years in prison to being sentenced to three years and four months to having his sentence commuted by Trump. The “Trump ally” part, according to former federal prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, is why Attorney General William Barr favored leniency for Stone — and Weissmann, in a scathing article for The Atlantic, argues that Barr showed a blatant disregard for the rule of law in Stone’s case.
