But that hasn’t stopped the bestselling author from pitching what he considered the perfect campaign slogan for the GOP frontrunner and media darling, who will take center-stage at Thursday night’s first presidential debate.
How's this for a Trump campaign slogan: IF YOU'RE WHITE, YOU'RE ALL RIGHT! ANY OTHER HUE, I DON'T TRUST YOU.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) August 5, 2015
King, of course, was referring to Trump’s assertion, made during his campaign kickoff speech, that Mexican immigrants were drug dealers and rapists. King was probably also referring to Trump’s lengthy and ultimately fruitless attempt to prove that President Barack Obama was born in a foreign country.
King later followed up with another Trump comment—or insult, depending on how you feel about Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.
