Stephen King, 7/4: Hug a Trump supporter; Stephen King 7/8: Trump is a dips*it

As we told last week, anti-Trump author Stephen King floated the idea that political opponents should hug each other in an attempt to bring America together on July 4:

Progressives, go find a Trump supporting friend–the one you haven’t spoken to since November of 2016–and give him or her a hug. Trumpies, find a “liberal snowflake” friend and do the same. Just for today, let’s all be Americans.

And as we told you, this plan was met with a YUGE thud form his liberal fans:

King later admitted “Americans aren’t willing to drop their grudges and talking points for even a single day” and that “if Russian isn’t paying Trump, they should start, because he’s doing a helluva job of dividing us”:

Responses to my 4th of July tweet suggest that politically-minded Americans aren’t willing to drop their grudges and talking points for even a single day. If Russia isn’t paying Trump, they should start, because he’s doing a helluva job of dividing us.

Well, if King is so interested in unitits us, maybe then don’t call President Trump a dips*it as he gets ready to go to the U.K. for the big NATO summit:

No more hugs, Stephen?
