Na 4. srpanj, Stephen King, koji je bio toliko agresivan u svom “otporu” da ga je predsjednik Donald Trump blokirao na Twitteru, pozvao je svoje ljevičarske sljedbenike da proglase jednodenvno primirje u ratu protiv Trumpa i otvoreno prigrle — bar za jedan trenutak — jednog od svojih prijatelja koji podržavaju Trumpa.
Lomite kruh, rekao je. Rukujte se. Uživajte u pivi i vatrometu.
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.

King je ubrzo otkrio da se politička struja koja najčešće propovijeda toleranciju gnuša da je izrazi.
Nah. I didn't stop talking to people because they were trump supporters. I did so because they showed themselves to be racists.

Can’t do it. Trump let us know who our friends really are. Life is short & I don’t have time for racists, bigots, homophobes, traitors, climate deniers, anti-healthcare+education, building walls and tearing families apart & locking them in cages! Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Love you, but no thanks. I don’t speak to them for reason and I probably never will.

Barem nisu napadi s Kingove lijeve strane postali osobni.
