It’s been another odd couple of days for Donald Trump.
There’s been that strange situation with him wanting to buy Greenland; whispers of a possible recession that have led to more angry tweets about the media; and as questions about the impact of his trade war with China ramped up, he stood in front of a group of reporters on Wednesday and said: “I am the chosen one.”
Strange, strange times.
Last night, Stephen King — who once basically predicted the rise of Donald Trump in a 1979 novel — took to Twitter to share a fairly bleak forecast for the future.
Questions of Trump’s possible impeachment aside; questions of his possible re-election aside; he has besmirched and devalued the American Presidency so severely it will take at least a generation to recover.

“He has besmirched and devalued the American Presidency so severely it will take at least a generation to recover.”
King has tweeted countless criticisms of Trump over the past few years, but that has to be one of his most damning sentences so far.
