More than 450 writers, including Stephen King, condemn Donald Trump in open letter

The Boston Globe reports:
For all the horror and suspense that Stephen King has written, it’s Donald Trump that has the the Maine author frightened.

King was one of more than 450 authors to sign an open letter published Tuesday “unequivocally” opposing the candidacy of Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.

“As writers, we are particularly aware of the many ways that language can be abused in the name of power,” reads the letter, which is addressed to “the American people.”

The signatories include 16 writers that reign from Boston, including multiple professors and the city’s poet laureate, Danielle Legros Georges.

In the letter, which doesn’t explicitly endorse any presidential candidate, the authors trumpet the value of pluralism, “respect for the truth,” and experience.
Stephen King (Democrat-Obama) is worried about the "respect for the truth" ! Imagine that.
