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.”

"So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come," Trump tweeted. "Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?"

Roger Stone was convicted Friday on multiple counts on charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The longtime associate of President Donald Trump was convicted on all seven counts.

He was charged with lying to Congress, obstruction of Congress, witness tampering and other crimes.

Stone was the nexus between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks coordinating the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman by Russian hackers, according to investigators.

He potentially faces up to 50 years in prison under the statutes, but most likely will be sentenced to far less.

During a break in the testimony of former United States ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch before a House committee holding impeachment hearings on Donald Trump, Fox News host Chris Wallace praised her poise and devastating testimony, saying viewers should be "moved" by her story.

As the House hearing chamber emptied of lawmakers, Wallace was effusive in his praise.

"I think if you are not moved, and we will have to watch what happens in the cross-examination, but if you were not moved by the testimony of Marie Yovanovitch, you don't have a pulse," he said.

"This is a woman who had served in posts for presidents of both parties for more than 30 years," he added. "Hardship posts, places like Somalia, Tashkent, and she tells a story of being a leading fighter against corruption," before he provided more details about her stellar career and noting the president had her summarily fired by a new Trump hire.
