In Other Pandemic News: Stephen King’s Self-Inflicted Identity Politics Twitter Beat-Down

The Boomer’s king of horror, old white wealthy Stephen King, has been an annoying puke of a liberal for decades. Weighing in on matters of public interest from left-of-center; and that’s his right, especially when you say dumb things and Twitter makes you pay.

Mr. King decided to tweet his thoughts about President Trump’s (whom he abhors like any good Liberal) coronavirus task force. “Note that Trump’s coronavirus team is all male, all old, and all white.”

Missing from the frame of the photo above, the one with the two women in it (Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma – 49 and a woman of color.), is U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams. A Black man in his forties.

HUD Sec. Ben Carson. Black man. And yes, there are others, not old, not white, not men.

Then there’s this.

And this, now more relevant than ever, yes? From two months ago!

So, does that explain this?

Words are great and we love words even when people take them out of context and pretend they mean things they do not. But action, well now. That speaks more volumes than there are books by Stephen King.

But Kudos to Mr. King for leaving it out there along with the beat down Twitter gave him for it. Oh, and what passes for an apology.
