Best-selling horror author Stephen King took a break from writing terrifying stories to tweet a hateful message out to First Lady Melania Trump and the President. He mocked the fact that Melania had to have kidney surgery yesterday for a benign growth on her kidneys.
“Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don,” wrote Stephen King in a tweet sent to his 4.8 million followers. “Sounds heavenly to me.” It was possibly one of the most insensitive comments I have ever had the displeasure of reading. Melania will be in the hospital at least two or three more days recovering.

My favorite book of all time is The Stand, written by Stephen King (unfortunately). My favorite author is Dean Koontz, who has far more talent than King and would never say something this crass and cruel. The Dark Tower writer’s screed came within hours of the news that Melania had received treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a benign kidney condition.
“This morning, First Lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. The procedure was successful and there were no complications,” the First Lady’s Office said in a statement. “Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere.”
It takes a truly disturbed individual to attack someone who has just had serious surgery… especially when it is First Lady Melania Trump. President Trump was at his wife’s side. This is why he was not in Israel for the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem. Trump put Melania first. White House staff confirmed that Melania is in good spirits and is recovering.
King was not alone in attacking the First Lady and the President during this stressful period for them. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn responded to reports about Melania’s procedure, saying, “No one believes Trump & Melania have a real marriage anymore. So can they please just let it go and stop pretending?” The hate and viciousness just never ends from the left.
Amy Siskind — president of The New Agenda, an organization “dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls” — criticized Trump for not being there for her surgery. Except I heard he was there for it. David Leavitt — a “freelance writer,” according to his Twitter bio, linked it to their marriage, which is not true either. He also said, “I bet that @realDonaldTrump would have been at Melania’s surgery if it was at one of his golf courses.” Others piled on as well.
King was immediately met with angry Twitter followers who felt his tweet was inappropriate considering the serious nature of Melania’s surgery. “Where is the civility?” one user asked. More to the point, where’s your humanity? Another said, “Cruel, shame!” “How disgraceful,” another person tweeted. And yet another said this, “You know, I’ve been a fan of yours since I was in high school and read Christine for the first time. Now, I just feel sorry for you; so full of hate and for what?”
The White House has not offered any additional information about the First Lady’s condition, citing her privacy. Vice President Mike Pence, however, described the procedure as “long planned” during a speech Monday night in Washington. Which makes sense. This was obviously not something that just happened out of the blue. It was, however, serious enough for Trump to not go to Israel for the historic opening of the US embassy. Instead, he sent a prerecorded message and stayed by Melania’s side. The First Lady was last seen in public at a White House event where she and the President honored military mothers and spouses for Mother’s Day. She later accompanied Trump to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland to welcome home three Americans who had been detained in North Korea.
King has used tragic moments to attack conservatives in the past. After an Amtrak train carrying Republican lawmakers to their annual retreat crashed into a garbage truck, King tweeted how the crash was “karma.” He later sort of apologized for that one. But his hatred of the right is almost legendary. When King received push-back because only the garbage truck driver was killed in the crash, he added, “Of COURSE sorry the truck driver died.”
So many on the left are so full of hate, they can’t help but show it. Here’s to Melania making a full recovery despite the wicked people who have attacked her and President Trump incessantly.
Where is the civility?

A trainload of Republicans on their way to a pricey retreat hit a garbage truck. My friend Russ calls that karma.

I wish Melania Trump a swift and complete recovery so she can file for divorce against the lying cheating scumbag.

First tweet after news breaks that Melania Trump had surgery today is about ZTE. https://t.co/KP3Z0AYHs2

Having covered @FLOTUS and her world for more than a year, it is not surprising to me that her office has pulled off something as major as this news without a leak — it’s interesting to think of this juxtaposed with the situation in the West Wing.

Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!
