Stick to writing horror classics, Mr. King.
Acclaimed horror writer and political novice Stephen King took a break from penning his next airport impulse buy to weigh in on the crisis in eastern Europe —particularly that he thinks Putin is in trouble because he’s not dealing with Donald Trump any more.
“Mr. Putin has made a serious miscalculation. He forgot he’s no longer dealing with Trump,” King tweeted.
Mr. Putin has made a serious miscalculation.
He forgot he's no longer dealing with Trump.

Obama is in office and Putin invades Crimea.
Trump is in office and Putin invades no one.
Biden is in office and Putin invades Ukraine.
Do you see the pattern?
