In an interview on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," King took aim at both President Trump and Pence, saying the vice president looks like "the mean doctor on a soap opera."

The hair doesn’t look like it has strands. It’s just there. You know, it’s kind of this soap opera — he’s like the mean doctor on a soap opera, the one who sells drugs, you know, or has a prostitution ring from Bulgaria or something. He has that look. He has that look.”

King added that Pence's tweets were so boring that he "blocked his ass."

During the interview, which took place hours after a federal court ruled that Trump cannot block people on Twitter, King joked that he wasn't particularly eager to re-follow the president on social media.

“So my question is, do I really want to follow that guy? I don’t think so!" King said.

“What did you do, Stephen King?” host Stephen Colbert asked him. “What did you do to that good man that hurt his feelings so much that he felt the only way to defend himself through your harsh and hurtful words was to block you on Twitter?”

“Well, I might have said he had his head somewhere where…  a certain yoga position would be necessary to get it there,” King shot back. “And that was it, man!”

A federal judge called on Trump and his social media manager, Dan Scavino, to "remedy" the blocking of Twitter accounts from Trump's official profile.
