Horror writer Stephen King on Saturday mocked President Donald Trump’s tweets accusing former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower as only Stephen King can — by turning into a short story.

Using a series of tweets, the author went after the Commander in Chief, who has come under yet another firestorm in the wake of his bombshell and, by most accounts, unhinged allegations.

“Not only did Obama tap Trump’s phones, he stole the strawberry ice cream out of the mess locker,” King tweeted.

“Obama tapped Trump’s phones IN PERSON! Went in wearing a Con Ed coverall. Michelle stood guard while O spliced the lines. SAD!” King continued.

“Trump should know OBAMA NEVER LEFT THE WHITE HOUSE! He’s in the closet! HE HAS SCISSORS!” King wrote.

In a series of tweets on Saturday morning, the President claimed that Obama had his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower, accusations he made without providing any evidence.

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” Trump tweeted.

“Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!” he added in subsequent tweets.

“I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”

A spokesperson for Obama categorically denied Trump’s claims later in the morning, stating that they were “simply false.”

“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,” said Kevin Lewis, Obama’s spokesperson.

“As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen,” he added. “Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”
