Author Stephen King Tells Iowans To Vote Out Steve King Because He’s Tired Of Being Confused With “This Racist Dumbbell”

Horror author and proud anti-Trumper Stephen King has a personal message for the people of Iowa: get rid of (horrible racist) Rep. Steve King.

Why? Well, besides the fact that Steve King a white nationalist and complete bigot (remember when he said, speaking of Dreamers, that “For every one who’s a valedictorian there’s another 100 out there that—they weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 74 pounds of marijuana across the desert”?), he also has the same name as the writer, and the good Stephen King is, frankly, very tired of it.

The bad Steve King is in what has ended up being a close race with Democrat J.D. Scholten for a House seat. But in somewhat good news, a number of companies, including Land O’ Lakes and Intel, recently decided to stop contributing to Congressman King’s campaign. That came after it was revealed that King met with a group of far-right Austrians linked to neo-Nazis while on a European trip that was paid for by a Holocaust memorial group.

Last week, Rep. King had a bit of a public meltdown after being called out on his association with those neo-Nazis.

And on Saturday, the New York Times issued a correction to an article, changing a descriptor of Rep. King’s comments from “racially tinged” to just straight-up “racist.”

The novelist King has been a very outspoken critic of Trump and his administration and supporters, as well as of Republicans in general.

Although Stephen King is the one who writes the scary novels, it’s really the other King that’s the terrifying one.
