Best-selling author jokes he knows 'what Pence must feel like' on book tour with Bill Clinton
Stephen King mocks Trump wiretap allegations with short story
Author Stephen King on Saturday jokingly turned President Trump's tweets accusing his predecessor Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower into a short story using a series of tweets.
"Not only did Obama tap Trump's phones, he stole the strawberry ice cream out of the mess locker," King tweeted.
"Obama tapped Trump's phones IN PERSON! Went in wearing a Con Ed coverall. Michelle stood guard while O spliced the lines. SAD!" King continued.
"Trump should know OBAMA NEVER LEFT THE WHITE HOUSE! He's in the closet! HE HAS SCISSORS!" King wrote.
Trump claimed early Saturday that Obama had his "wires tapped" in Trump Tower before Election Day, tweeting the accusation without offering evidence.
"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" Trump said.
"Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!" he added.
A spokesman for Obama denied Trump's allegation, saying Saturday that "neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen."
"Any suggestion otherwise is simply false," Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said.
