BREAKING: People Who Make Up Stories Hate Trump! OMG!

King vs. Trump: Literary community demands ‘forceful response’ to campaign
‘The history of dictatorship is the history of manipulation and division’

"Horror writer Stephen King has joined thousands of his peers in demanding a “forceful” response to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

The website Lithub compiled a giant petition by the literary world titled “An Open Letter to the American People.” Authors like David Eggers and Amy Tan agreed on Tuesday that Mr. Trump would usher in an age of American despotism.

“The rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression among his followers, shouts down opponents, intimidates dissenters, and denigrates women and minorities, demands, from each of us, an immediate and forceful response,” the petition reads.

The group plans to continue its efforts against the billionaire on Twitter via @WritersOnTrump and #WritersOnTrump. Over 2,000 signatures towards a final goal of 10,000 was reached within hours of posting the online petition.

Mr. King appears to have done a bit of foreshadowing of his involvement in the effort, tweeting on Monday, “Here’s an idea! Let’s turn America’s nukes over to a bad-tempered a–—e with no knowledge of foreign policy. What could go wrong?”

Other notable authors to sign the petition include Michael Chabon, Peter Ho Davies, Junot Díaz, Karen Russell and Tobias Wolff."
I guess the totalitarian years of Obama were just fine with these people. And off-hand, I'd say that King is the asshole of the story. What any dunderhead would know is that the foreign policy of Hillary/Obama has resulted in the death of untold tens or hundreds of thousands of people in the middle east. But Trump is the villain in their story. After all, Trump causes Leftists to riot, pillage and burn, doncha know. None so blind as those unwilling to see. But I'm certain that these cretins feel rilly, rilly self-righteous and special right now.

I don't think Stephen King ever met a liberal cause he didn't like.

Every time people like this get together and announce garbage like this, it just makes me want to vote for Trump more. Just to give these self-congratulating finks the finger, you know?

WOW! 2,000 signatures out of a goal of 10,000. That's surely going to derail the "Trump train." Memo to Stephen King: The train is fine. You overestimate the influence you have on the elctorate by several orders of magnitude. The gatekeepers of the Narrative (like you) are becoming less relevant every day - and you are clueless as to your diminishing influence and control.

The train is fine... that reminds me of an ad I saw on some NeverTrump Twatter account. In a beautiful allegory of lack of self-awareness, it included only the first five seconds of this video.
