Liberal hero Stephen King may have bitten off more than he can chew with his latest tweet attacking President Donald Trump.
“It’s clear at this point that extreme measures are needed to remove Donald Trump from office,” King said. “If this were one of my books he would have been dead within the first few chapters.”
“Maybe we’ll get a special twist ending if we’re lucky,” he says.
After swift backlash, King deleted both tweets.
Threatening the life of the President is a felony punishable by up to life in prison, and King’s threat was pretty direct.So far, it is unknown if the Secret Service is aware of the washed-up horror author’s threat to the President.
So far, neither King or President Trump has made a statement acknowledging the horrific threats made against him.
