Legendary horror author Stephen King, who has written It, The Shining, Carrie, Pet Sematary, Dark Tower, and more took to Twitter to air his opinion about President Donald Trump. This  time he likens the President to a cartoon character by the name of Crabby Appleton before stating that he is “rotten to the core.

Crabby Appleton was the main villain of Tom Terrific that appeared on the Captain Kangaroo children’s television show that ran from 1957 to 1959. The charcter’s slogan was “I’m rotten to the core!”

This wasn’t the only Tweet this month where Stephen King targeted President Donald Trump and his administration. King went after Trump and his administration over their battle to fund the border wall to the tune of five billion dollars. He lashed out at the fact the money would be going into a wall instead of going towards school lunches or veterans benefits.

And just last month Stephen King called into question President Trump’s mental state stating that the President’s “tweets over the last 9 days provide a window into an increasingly disordered mind.” He would go on to make a wild comparison stating that American citizens are “all to some extent his hostages.”

King hasn’t been the only celebrity that seems to have the former real estate mogul occupying space in their minds. Ron Perlman recently claimed that Trump should be “in chains” for high crimes and treason. And Avengers director Joss Whedon has made multiple attacks on the President.

Ant-Man and The Wasp actor T.I. also questioned the President’s sanity during an interview on BET’s Raq Rants.

Of course, we also have to include Captain America actor Chris Evans who attempted to demonize the President of the United States by comparing him to the villain of the Back to the Future franchise, Biff. But to be fair, the look is pretty uncanny.

As I said earlier, it is quite funny how much real estate this man is occupying to people who are just as known, and famous as he. Though its unfortunate that King had to use half-truths in his December 12th Tweet against the president, using school children and vets as cannon fodder generally should be frowned upon.

What do you think of these almost weekly Tweets? Do you believe that these celebrities are trying to make a difference? Or are they just tweeting for their own benefit?
