Left-wing horror author Stephen King can’t stop complaining about Donald Trump nearly six months after the president left the White House.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called Trump “incompetent and lazy,” while also blaming the former president for “maybe hundreds of thousands” of deaths during the pandemic.
“I was horrified by Trump as president for all kinds of reasons,” he said, “but number one was, as president, he was incompetent and lazy. So for that reason I had a real problem with him and I used to tweet about that quite often during the whole Trump presidency.”
King was responding to a question about his latest novel, Billy Summers, which is reportedly set in 2019 against the backdrop of the Trump administration.
