Horror novelist and Hollywood producer Stephen King, who has spent years attacking President Trump and his supporters, now wonders when Republicans will cease “supporting Trump” and begin “supporting America.”

“Republicans: When are you going to stop supporting Trump and start supporting America?” the Pet Sematary author posed in a tweet to his 6.2 million Twitter followers.

The author’s question follows years of publicly criticizing Trump and his supporters, calling the president a “horse’s ass,” as well as a “vile, racist, and incompetent bag of guts and waters” and a “mendacious, narcissistic, draft-dodging, chickenshitty, bullshitty, chauvanistic, pussy-grabbing, bullyragging, racist, overweening, tax-dodging, whiny, boastful, dictatorial, and semi-literate.”

Republicans have also been the target of King’s vitriol. Last year, King peddled debunked fake news, openly pondering if Republicans were “supporting a President who is an active or passive Russian asset.”

Stephen King is hardly the only left-wing figure to criticize Trump’s allies for supporting the president’s efforts to ensure election integrity before closing the door on the final results. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recently stated that Trump is “stoking the flames of violence” in his post-election battle and accused his allies of putting “selfish interests once again ahead of our country.” Other progressives have offered their opinions in a less refined way.

“I hate Donald trump and if you like him: I hate you too. Now what,” “Fancy” rapper Iggy Azalea proclaimed last week.
