Stephen King Is Drawing Attention to How Much Trump Likes Calling People Dogs

Stephen King Is Calling Attention to How Much Trump Really Likes Calling People Dogs

It’s well-known that Donald Trump is not popular with celebrities (well, except Kanye West), and the feeling seems to be mutual. In the last two years alone, Trump has feuded with Michael Moore, Chrissy Teigan, and Meryl Streep, with Seth Macfarlane writing an op-ed in 2016 explaining why Hollywood’s biggest stars refuse to align themselves with the President.

One of Trump’s biggest detractors is legendary horror author Stephen King, who came to the defense of former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman this week after Trump called her a “dog” on Twitter. The offensive tweet was in response to Manigault Newman’s new memoir ‘Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,’ in which she accused the President of using racial slurs, amongst other things.

Unsurprisingly, people were disgusted that the President would call a women a “dog”

And King was one of them

And as a Twitter user pointed out, this isn’t the first time, and it’s not just females

But why is “dog” Trump’s favourite insult? As The Cut pointed out, the majority of people consider dogs “beloved sweeties,” whereas Trump seems to think they’re constantly getting fired.

So, while most of us might associate dogs with cuddles and walkies, Trump seems to relate them more to getting booted from your high-profile media job

Trump and King’s feud has been ongoing for some time, with the 72-year-old blocking author on Twitter last year after he called out the “pettiness” of the President’s tweets.

Although considering Trump has blocked 90% of Hollywood (there’s even a #BlockedByTrump hashtag), that’s not really surprising.
