Horror meister Stephen King got into the spirit of Donald Trump’s baseless claims that Barack Obama wiretapped his phones by turning it into a funny horror story that fits into a few tweets.
First, he tweeted that the nefarious deed was carried out by none other than Obama himself “dressed in Con Ed” coveralls with Michelle Obama as a lookout. “SAD!” Obama also “stole the Strawberry ice cream out of the mess locker,” King tweeted.
But the real horror is that Obama never left the White House, King warns. He is IN THE CLOSET with SCISSORS!” tweeted the horror novelist.
But seriously, King also tweeted that the whole Trump “wiretap affair” reminded him of the movie “The Stupids.” It’s “embarrassing,” he wrote.
America got a rude awakening Saturday with a series of early morning Trump tweets claiming that Obama had wiretapped his phones at his Manhattan Trump Tower apartment and office before the election. He offered no proof, and the claim seemed to be linked to a Breitbart article. An Obama spokesman said the story was “simply false.” Former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes pointed out that presidents can’t order wiretaps.
King was not the only one to respond with tweets to the president’s latest complaint.
But then Sean Hannity was already asking: “What did Obama know, and when did he know it?”
