Stephen King is really going after Ted Cruz on Twitter

Judging by Stephen King's Twitter feed, there's only one politician the horror master dislikes almost as much as Donald Trump, and that's Ted Cruz.

King has been tweeting about Cruz for years now, but over the past six months — with the mid-terms approaching — he's really been ramping things up.

Here are some recent examples.

Hello, Texas! I suppose you are going to elect Ted Cruz again, but admit it: he's kinda creepy, ain't he?

Hey, Texas—Do I really have to look at Ted Cruz for another 6 years? Assuming I even live that long? (God, I can't wait for the trolls to come out of the woodwork on this one; left myself wide open. Oh well, what the fuck.)

That last tweet, posted back in June, prompted a response from Cruz himself, in which he described King as a "limousine liberal". The horror master responded with this:

Ted Cruz called me a limousine liberal!
Oooo!
He's never ridden in one himself, I suppose.
Come on up to Maine, Ted, I'll give you a ride on my Harley. It was made in America before your boy Trump fucked up the company.

Over the past week, with the Texas Senate race on the horizon, King has continued his onslaught.

Texas: Fire Ted Cruz. What have you got to lose?
Maine: Fire Bruce Poliquin. I can't think of a rhyme, so just fire him.

King's latest barb was posted on Thursday night. At the time of writing it's already been shared over 4000 times.

Hey Texas Dems and Indies: Remind your Republican friends what they already know: Ted Cruz is a crawdad. You won't upset them, they know it already. Just whisper, "You can vote Beto and tell the exit pollers you voted for Ted the Crawdad."

Ouch.
