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.
Narrator: it's entirely possible to do this. https://t.co/Q84AJ4UiPY

Alternatively, it is impossible to watch HBO's CHERNOBYL without thinking of the crappiness and evil of the Soviet Union and the attendant disaster of Chernobyl https://t.co/K7DPewPvgW

There is ZERO chance a Chernobyl-like event would happen here in the U.S.. Not with all the civil servants who would blow the whistle, the fact that we have more technology, radar, and satellites that would make it hard for something like to be covered up, and we have a #1A here https://t.co/gvEc39C0aR

Wow. The show makes me hate Lenin, Stalin and the products/results of Communism even more. To tie Trump to the show in any way just means you think about him WAY too much. https://t.co/t7MRlAvuej
