“Bestselling author and politically outspoken sh*tlib Stephen King was elated to receive a phone call recently from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whom he spent a solid 15 minutes chatting up. Unfortunately, it wasn’t really Zelensky on the other line but rather a couple of Russian pranksters who tricked King into some ill-advised statements – specifically praising Ukrainian World War II Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera and comparing him to the United States’ founding fathers.
Jimmy and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss King’s exercise of bad judgment and the convoluted thinking that could have led him to believe that the Ukrainian President would have any reason to phone up a well-known American horror writer.”
No, Stephen King!…No!…
Vet your calls!…Vet your video chats!…
You’re getting old…and you’re ignorant on global politics…You’re ripe for this kind of exploitation…Don’t follow anyone elses lead…Don’t verbally commit to anything!
Please just stick to writing.
