Stephen King Goes Viral With His Mockery Of ‘Chickensh*t’ Trump’s Refusal To Testify

Like millions of Americans, novelist Stephen King is not a fan of failed one-term, twice-impeached, and multiply-indicted former president Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, Trump’s defense team rested their case in support of the ex-president without him taking the stand to tell his side of the story.

While most legal experts agree that it was a wise move to not testify, Trump’s refusal directly contradicted numerous statements he’d made over the past couple of months, insisting that he would indeed defend himself against charges that he allegedly falsified business records to hide hush money payments he made in response to extramarital affairs he had with at least two women, Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.

After getting pelted with massive online mockery for his cowardice, Trump was also swatted down on social media by King, who branded Donnie as “chickenshit.”

King’s tweet has been “liked” 31,000 times and retweeted nearly 5,000 more since he posted it on Tuesday morning, and it has also elicited over 6,000 responses. Here’s a sampling:

‘Coward’ Trump Mercilessly Mocked After Refusing To Testify In Hush Money Case

After saying for weeks that he looked forward to testifying on his own behalf in the hush money and election fraud case brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, former president Donald Trump turned tail and ran today when offered a chance to take the witness stand.

As recently as last month, Trump insisted he planned to testify.

However, as most expected, Trump’s defense team rested without him saying a word under oath, probably because they knew he would have committed perjury.

Donald’s latest cowardly slinking was met with widespread mockery on social media, where he was called a coward and liar. Take a look:

Closing arguments will begin next week.

Trump Campaign Winks And Nods To Extremists With Ad Promising ‘Creation Of A Unified Reich’

The 2024 Donald Trump campaign posted a video ad on social media Monday that promises the “creation of a unified Reich” if he wins the 2024 presidential election in November.

According to HuffPost, “The 30-second clip imagined newspaper articles reporting on a ‘landslide’ Trump 2024 election win. One referred to ‘the creation of a unified Reich’ under the headline of ‘What’s Next For America?'”

The word “Reich” is a clear a reference to the Third Reich, which was proclaimed by German dictator Adolf Hitler in 1933 and led to the horrors of World War II and the Holocaust.

Shortly after the video was posted on Trump’s Truth Social site, the Biden campaign pointed out that the former president was unmistakably harkening back to Nazi Germany.

That’s not all the ad promises, Mediaite noted.

Other parts of the ad featured placeholder text about “the European great powers” and the digging of trenches next to headlines such as, “Border is closed. 15 million illegal aliens deported,” and “Peace through strength.”

The Trump campaign immediately shifted into damage control mode, with campaign spokesperson Karoline Leavitt insisting it was “not a campaign video” and had instead been “created by a random account” and “reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word.”

Trump himself has used Nazi-like rhetoric before, claiming that immigrants are “poisoning the blood of our country” and hosting Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention that Trump and his supporters are bringing up the Third Reich, which was predicated on the belief that only “pure” Aryan blood was acceptable in Germany. Such rhetoric eventually led to the deaths of 11 million innocent people who were executed by Hitler’s henchmen.

This ‘Rookie Mistake’ By Trump’s Attorney Could Lead To A Guilty Verdict In Hush Money Trial

Former president Donald Trump’s penchant for hiring attorneys who don’t know what they’re doing could be on the verge of leading to a crushing defeat in the New York hush money and election fraud lawsuit currently underway in Manhattan.

Todd Blanche is the lead attorney for the ex-president, and his incompetence and failure to ask the right questions when cross-examining Michael Cohen could come back to haunt Trump, according to Barbara McQuade, a former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan.

As McQuade explained to MSNBC host Katie Phang, Blanche’s mistakes were “going on too long, not having a specific plan and asking one question too many.”

The “strategy of an effective cross-examination,” McQuade continued, is to “pick out a few key areas of impeachment, contradiction or getting the witness to agree with helpful points and be laser-focused on those things so that the jury can follow along.”

Instead, it appeared that Blanche was attempting to “exhaust” Cohen, McQuade said.

Blanche “seems to be going on and on and trying to get Michael Cohen to admit to lies. Just point out the contradiction and then you can use it yourself.”

Testimony in the Manhattan hush money trial is likely to be concluded next week.

J.D. Vance Gets Busted For Lying Like A Rug About Trump’s Record On Jobs And Tariffs

Ohio Republican Sen. J.D. Vance got a brutal fact-check on live television earlier today when he attempted to lie about job creation and tariffs on imports during an appearance on Face the Nation.

Vance, who is also a leading contender to be former president Donald Trump’s running mate in this year’s election, was asked by host Margaret Brennan how more tariffs would make American products less expensive.

“So how is the Trump-Vance idea here going to help make things more affordable for people if you’re putting taxes on goods they’re purchasing from overseas?” she inquired.

“Well, I don’t necessarily buy the premise there, Margaret,” Vance responded. “If you apply tariffs, really what it is is you’re saying that we’re going to penalize you for using slave labor in China and importing that stuff in the United States.”

“What you end up doing is you end up making more stuff in America, in Pennsylvania, in Ohio, and in Michigan,” he insisted.

“That did not happen in the Trump administration, though,” Brennan noted.

“Well, it actually did happen in the Trump administration, Margaret,” Vance claimed. “Manufacturing jobs came back.”

Nope. That’s not even remotely true.

As a matter of fact, manufacturing jobs have just begun to come back in large numbers since President Joe Biden was elected, with PolitiFact noting that some 800,000 manufacturing jobs have been added since he took office:

  • Official federal data shows President Joe Biden, in office 45 months, is right on the number of manufacturing jobs created, although presidents do not control the economy single-handedly.
  • The first three-quarters of those job gains represented a return to pre-recession levels.
  • Comparing historical patterns 45 months out from a recession’s onset reveals Biden-era manufacturing employment to be the strongest in 72 years, and the second strongest since the end of World War II.

Trump, on the other hand, saw massive losses in the manufacturing sector, due in large part to the tariffs he imposed on China, Politico reported in September 2020.

Four years after he won the Midwest by vowing to revitalize the U.S. manufacturing workforce, President Donald Trump is campaigning for reelection on a job well done. The numbers tell a different story.

Trump’s anti-trade agenda and a pandemic-induced recession have combined to shutter factories and accelerate decades-old trends toward automation, eliminating hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs, many for good, including in the Rust Belt states he needs to win in November.

The Biden-Harris campaign also joined in fact-checking Sen. Vance, who is willing to kiss Trump’s fat ass 24/7 if he thinks it will secure him a spot on the 2024 GOP ticket.

Nice try, senator, but you’re just as full of shit as the lying rapist you’re praying will choose you to be his VP.
