Lee Moran “Stephen King Zings Donald Trump And Vladimir Putin With George Orwell Quote” https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/stephen-king-george-orwell-quote-trump-putin_us_5b51d676e4b0b15aba8df08d
Horror writer Stephen King took inspiration from the work of late author George Orwell for his latest attack on President Donald Trump.
King took aim at Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Thursday when he tweeted the last sentence from Orwell’s allegoric novella Animal Farm.
“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which,” wrote King, appearing to refer to how the pigs in Orwell’s story, who were supposed to be equal to the other animals, ended up becoming as bad as the humans they were trying to replace.
George Orwell on Trump and Putin, in 1945: “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
