Stephen King Nails The Big Problem With Republicans' Argument Against Impeachment

The horror novelist also tweeted about how to hit a raw nerve with Donald Trump’s base.

Author Stephen King on Thursday dismantled a key Republican talking point against the impeachment of President Donald Trump with a blunt reminder about the 2016 election.

“I get a kick out of the Republicans saying impeachment is an effort to overturn the will of the American people when Hilary (sic) beat the dumbbell by 3 million votes,” the horror novelist tweeted. “He won because of the antiquated electoral college, a 2-mule wagon in a jet plane world.”

King, a frequent and vocal critic of Trump and his administration, noted in a later tweet how “Trumpers hate that 3 million vote differential.”

“Bring it up and it’s like hitting on a raw nerve,” he wrote.

King’s posts resonated with fans who called the analysis “bang-on” and “excellent.”
