Stephen King can’t watch Chernobyl without thinking about Trump

HBO’s new mini series drama Chernobyl has been getting a lot of buzz for the network even though many are criticizing it for downplaying the effects of socialism on the people of Russia.

Horror writer Stephen King is troubled when watching the show, but not for the reason you might think. “It’s impossible to watch HBO’s CHERNOBYL without thinking of Donald Trump; like those in charge of the doomed Russian reactor, he’s a man of mediocre intelligence in charge of great power–economic, global–that he does not understand,” King tweeted.

It must be a sad existence where Trump takes up so much of his head space that he can’t even watch an hour of television without comparing it to the President.
