“Mike Pence looks like a soap opera villain--the untrustworthy doctor with a roving eye. It's the hair. And that always stern expression,” King tweeted.

King is a frequent critic of the Trump administration. He called President TrumpDonald TrumpGaetz was denied meeting with Trump: CNN Federal Reserve chair: Economy would have been 'so much worse' without COVID-19 relief bills Police in California city declare unlawful assembly amid 'white lives matter' protest MORE “unfit for office” over his threats to North Korea.


He also said that he was going to block Trump from seeing his movies after King said Trump had blocked him on Twitter.

King also called Trump a “narcissist” after his attacks on San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz for her “poor leadership ability” after Hurricane Maria.

"Donald Trump, the master of self-congratulation. His picture should be next to NARCISSIST in the dictionary,” King tweeted.

King's latest comments came just hours after Pence gave a speech at a prayer walk in Las Vegas. Pence said the city came face to face with pure evil last week when a gunman killed 58 people in what has become the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
