Dan Bongino Humiliates Stephen King after Author Gloats over Fox News Exit

Author Stephen King heckled Dan Bongino on Twitter but the move backfired when the popular conservative commentator shredded the author in response.

In a tweet, Bongino took a swipe at Democrat President Joe Biden.

“Today is May 1st, and Joe Biden is the WORST president in US history,” Bongino said.

King didn’t like that, and rather than try to speak in defense of Biden, he took a swipe at Bongino leaving Fox News instead.

As Slay News recently reported, Bongino recently left Fox after agreeing not to renew his contract with the network.

“And you’re out of a job at Fox. Biden still has his,” King replied to Bongino’s post.

Bongino fired back: “Yeah dude, working six days a week, doing a top-ten podcast, a nationally syndicated radio show, managing billion-dollar tech investments, and finishing off another book made me reevaluate my work schedule.

“But keep bitching and moaning like a chump on Twitter while we use you for comedy relief in show material.”

King didn’t reply.

King addressed his feud with Elon Musk and his threat to leave Twitter recently.

After King publicly vowed that he wouldn’t pay the new $8 subscription fee for his Twitter blue checkmark, Musk trolled him by personally paying it on his behalf.

“Well, I don’t really understand it,” he said.

“I mean, Elon Musk, after I said that, he tweeted back.

“And I thought to myself, ‘This is really kind of weird.’

“He gifted me this thing, but it said on the original blue check I’d actually approved of it, or I had paid for it or given a phone number.

“And none of that stuff was true.

“I do Twitter mostly for fun.

“I post pictures of my dog.

“I rail against Trump—not that anybody pays attention.

“You know what it is?

“People pay attention to the stuff they sort of go along with and everything else just sort of goes out the window.

“I put dad jokes on there—and the big thing is that I’m able to recommend stuff that I’ve read or that I’ve seen that I’m enthusiastic about.

“So, in other words, this is something that I do for fun, and it’s a great site for that sort of thing.

“It’s like an American back fence.

“Everybody gossips and everybody gets up to things.

“Yeah, it’s gotten very strange,” King said.

“You know, there are a lot of people that I don’t follow who are now part of my Twitter feed. I don’t mind.

“I don’t block them. I think I want to know what they’re doing.

“But, you know, I get lots of tweets every day.

“Every day I get tweets from Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Lauren Boebert, a number of different people who are just sort of, like, all in on Trump to the extent that it’s actually sort of amusing.

“The thing is, if everybody who doesn’t approve of the way things are going, if we all leave, then it’s just like walking off the field.

“No, I can’t see myself leaving Twitter,” he admitted.

“Yeah. They don’t get to scare me away and to cheer and say, ‘Well, we got rid of Stephen King from Twitter.’

“So, yeah, I’m going to stay,” he said.

“I don’t tweet as much as I used to, and I don’t look at the site as much as I used to.”
