Author Stephen King said Monday that Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz is, “very scary” because “Cruz is a fundamentalist Christian.”

In an interview with the Daily Beast’s Marlow Stern, King also took shots at Cruz’s appearance:

He’s very scary. I actually think Trump, in the end, would be more electable than Cruz because Cruz is a fundamentalist Christian and it would almost be like electing the analog of an Imam—someone whose first guiding principle would be the scripture rather than the Constitution. But I don’t think he could get elected. And, even if he was able to govern without blowing up the world, could we look at a guy who resembles a cable game show host for four years? He has that awful plastered-down hair and everything.
