A mini-series that’s running on HBO, “Chernobyl,” depicts the horrors following the explosion at one of the reactors at the Vladimir I. Lenin Power Station near the city of Pripyat, Ukraine in April of 1986. Author Stephen King felt compelled to tie it to President Trump:

It's impossible to watch HBO's CHERNOBYL without thinking of Donald Trump; like those in charge of the doomed Russian reactor, he's a man of mediocre intelligence in charge of great power–economic, global–that he does not understand.

The writer/producer of “Chernobyl” agrees with King:

First, I am so pleased that you’re watching.

Second, I am so pleased that you’re smartly watching.

Not that there was ever a doubt. 😉

That’s weird though, because a lot of the show is about protecting “the state” and centralized power at all cost, which sounds more like, well, not Trump.

Trump continues to live rent-free in self-unaware liberal heads everywhere.

Update: Here’s an important reminder:

Two years after the Chernobyl disaster, Bernie was in Moscow praising Soviet leadership. https://t.co/q2mEzTKGTX
