American horror story author Stephen King was faced with immediate backlash after he publicly boasted about how President Joe Biden was not spending his second weekend in office on the golf course.
King– a Democrat celebrity, who often criticizes former President Donald Trump and the Republican Party — tweeted, “It’s the weekend, and we have a president who isn’t playing golf.”
Stephen King’s Official Tweet
It's the weekend, and we have a president who isn't playing golf.

Mr. King’s public statement was likely a veiled jab targeting President Trump since the 45th Commander-In-Chief known to play golf as a way to unwind and for exercise throughout his four-year term.
Twitterverse took quick notice to what was being implied and King’s tweet instantly backfired.
Here are some of the most highly-engaged reactions:
Imagine a president so good that people get triggered by him playing golf 😂😂😂😂

I like how playing golf is suddenly a bad thing even though it’s Obama also played a lot of it, as well as basketball.

He doesn't look physically capable of playing golf, so this surprises you? I'm old enough to remember Obama playing lots of golf being presented as a sign of him being cool…

They literally have a problem with playing golf… on the weekend… I don’t seem to remember a problem when Obama was in office but ce la vie! pic.twitter.com/9MZc3bzqzt

Frankly, if we saw him playing some golf, we’d have more faith in his competence.

Because he has probably forgotten which end of the club he once used to hit the ball with.

Too busy napping to recover from destroying all those jobs.

After 9 holes, he probably couldn’t remember why he went out.
Probably safer at home.

1. Most golf courses are closed for the winter.
2. He physically can't play golf.
TDS galaxy brain still on display.

Stephen King is happy that joe Biden is not playing golf.
I am afraid a golf club might be a Heavy Lift for frail Joe.

Because he'd either fall down, forget how the game is played or have a cardiac arrest when attempting to swing at the ball.
THAT is our leader.

We have a President who doesn’t know it’s the weekend 😳

What a relief.
We instead have a heavily medicated, dementia addled kleptocrat ruling by dictum from behind razor wire barricades.
At least; No Golf.

No he is just spending his time taken 73,000 jobs away from good Americans that won’t feed their families tonight that good ! Yeah he is a gem alright!

I’m sure that’s a great comfort to the people that needed the $2000 that was promised.

10s of thousands of jobs gone at the stroke of a pen devastating workers and their families, but sure, senile, creepy Joe doesn't play golf, that's what's important. 🙄 https://t.co/ZQvyszSJr2

11,000 Americans were made unemployed by just one of Beijing Biden’s 40 E.O.s
