Stephen King, the emperor of scary novels, says Donald Trump leaves hims speechless, but is even more frightened of Sen. Ted Cruz as president.

“He’s very scary,” King said of Cruz in a Daily Beast interview. “I actually think Trump, in the end, would be more electable than Cruz because Cruz is a fundamentalist Christian and it would almost be like electing the analog of an Imam — someone whose first guiding principle would be the scripture rather than the Constitution.

“But I don’t think he could get elected. And, even if he was able to govern without blowing up the world, could we look at a guy who resembles a cable game show host for four years? He has that awful plastered-down hair and everything.”

King not that Trump “can talk about Ted Cruz being a pussy and it just bounces off! It’s like he’s bulletproof. Will he get nominated? I would’ve said the idea is ridiculous even four months ago, but now I’m not so sure.”

Reaction to King’s comments:

After everything Stephen King has written…this is what scares him?
