Stephen King Says What We're Thinking About Trump's Donation To Harvey Victims

Donald Trump recently announced, through Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that he would be donating $1 million of his personal money to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.

While this sounds good on paper, one prominent voice is expressing his...err...skepticism about the motives behind Trump's sudden good will.

Author Stephen King, a frequent Trump critic, tweeted on Sunday:

As you might expect, Twitter weighed in, largely in support of King's sentiment.

Not everyone was as skeptical of Trump as King, however.

And this user chose the wrong metaphor in his criticism of King...

...to which this King fan responded...

Despite the announcement of Trump's intention to donate to Harvey relief efforts on Thursday, as of Friday Sanders wasn’t so sure about Trump's plans. She dodged the questions from reporters asking if the money would be “coming from his own money or from the Trump Foundation." 

The Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold, as well as other news publications, found out during the campaign that Trump used his foundation like a personal expense account to pay for expenses like portraits of himself as well as to settle lawsuits. 

Trump was also shown to have repeatedly exaggerated his giving.
