Hours after news broke that Melania Trump had been admitted at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a benign kidney condition, best-selling author, Stephen King got in a lot of trouble for making light of her situation.
Melania Trump hospitalized
The First Lady had put her health aside to attend to official duties on mother's day. However, she was hospitalized on May 14 according to a statement released by her office.
The statement made it clear that the procedure had been successful. Melania is expected to be out of the hospital in a week.
Stephen King's tweet
As she recovers, she has gotten a significant amount of support, specifically from her husband, Donald Trump, who flew out to see her in the hospital.
Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 14, 2018
However, the best-selling author's tweet came with the slew of messages showing support.
Not to be snarky, but Melania can probably use a week’s rest from Blabbermouth Don. Sounds heavenly to me.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) May 14, 2018
He pointed out that the First Lady could use her recovery time to take a break from her husband ' Blabbermouth Don'.
King was not the only famous person who had not so nice things to say to Melania Trump. Late night show host Jimmy Fallon took a swipe at the Trumps as well when he gave his monologue for The Tonight Show.

You know, I've been a fan of yours since I was in high school and read Christine for the first time. Now, I just feel sorry for you; so full of hate and for what?— Cindy Frazier (@lilred68) May 15, 2018
Stephen King you are losing what little you have left of your facilities......what happened to you? No one, of your caliber, bashed the former President or his family like this. There is dislike, but be civil my man. Red Sox fan, and former fan of yours....— Matthew Brady (@matthewbbrady) May 15, 2018
Not a few people were displeased by the swipes taken at Mrs. Trump and they made their discontent known. We do hope she gets better and returns to her normal life as soon as possible.
