Stephen King Uses Film Quote To Utterly Destroy Kavanaugh On Twitter

Published

On Thursday, people across the nation tuned in to watch Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh give their testimonies in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

And nationwide, people were tweeting their reactions. Author Stephen King was among them. And he made it very, very clear who he was supporting.

Here’s what he wrote:

As the day was drawing to a close, King posted the following tweet, which has racked over 150,000 likes and shared over 42,000 times.

Finally, King used a reference from the Coen brothers’ Miller’s Crossing to draw a parallel with Kavanaugh.

Here, King is referring to a line spoken by John Turturro’s character, Bernie Bernbaum, to main character Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne).

Earlier in the film, Reagan takes mercy on Bernbaum, opting not to kill after the man breaks down crying in front of him.

Later, we realize his tears were nothing more than an attempt to save himself.

Morning Joe Slams Trump For The ‘Complete Trash Emitting From His Twitter Feed’ This Memorial Day Weekend

Published

on

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” crew bashed Donald Trump on Monday after he spent the entire Memorial Day weekend tweeting “disgusting” attacks on his critics.

Co-host Mika Brzezinski began by reading off a series of ugly tweets from Trump that attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams.

“Why do we read these? Why do we read these? Because everyone is freaking out about what Joe Biden said. They’re doing, like, two to three minutes of coverage, extensive coverage,” she said.

“This guy [Trump] can’t go five minutes without defaming someone, libeling them, saying disgusting, cruel things,” she continued. “If we’re going to spend as much time on President Trump’s disgusting comments as we do on Joe Biden’s, we’re going to be on the air for a long time — we’ll never get off the air, it is endless.”

Host Joe Scarborough added, “I’ve had calls from the press, ‘what should Biden do?’ I’m, like, are you kidding me? Since that time, that off-handed remark, Donald Trump has called a black woman, who has dedicated her life to public policy, mocked her for being obese, mocked the appearance of the speaker of the House, the highest-ranked woman in history, called a former secretary of state, former first lady, and the last nominee for the Democratic party a, quote, ‘skank.’”

Asked to comment, former George W. Bush State Department official Elise Jordan did not hold back on Trump.

“Joe, the kind of tweets that Donald Trump was retweeting this weekend, and the trash that was coming off his Twitter account,” she began. ” If you have a relative tweeting things like that, you step in. If your father or mother is going crazy on the Twitter account, you stop them.”

“It just is intolerable and I can’t believe that, at the same time, you have Joe Biden’s comments — which were unfortunate, but he apologized immediately and showed humility — that Trump — some Trump supporters are trying to say, ‘Oh, let’s keep talking about that.’ when you look at just the complete trash emitting from Donald Trump’s Twitter feed,” she added.
