AceShowbiz - On "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Wednesday, May 23, novelist Stephen King talked about President Donald Trump blocking his Twitter account. King didn't seem to be disappointed about it, though. He effortlessly blocked Trump's account in return along with Vice President Mike Pence's account. "I blocked his a**," King told Colbert.
"So my question is: do I really want to follow that guy?" King asked. "I don't think so." According to the author, the President blocked him about eight or nine months ago. King then recalled his last time coming to the show when Barack Obama was still the president, "The last time I was here, I had a president who had just given me a National medal of the Arts, now we've got a president who blocked me on Twitter."
When asked about what motivated Trump to block him, King confessed, "Well, I might have said he had his head somewhere where a certain yoga position would be necessary to get it there. That was it, man! That was it."
The 70-year-old author also explained the reason why he blocked Mike Pence's account, "Because whatever Donald said, Mike Pence would come out and say, 'That's right. Exactly.' " Despite his title as master of horror, King admitted that there was something about the Vice President that's creepy, "I think it has something to do with the hair. The hair doesn't look like it has strands. It's just there. He's like the mean doctor on a soap opera, the one who sells drugs, you know, or has a prostitution ring from Bulgaria or something. He has that look."
On the same day, just hours before the show, a federal judge ruled that it's unconstitutional for the President of the United States to block users from seeing his tweets. However, there's still no sign yet from Trump to submit to the judge's ruling about blocking people who disagree with him on Twitter.
