More Than 1,000 Writers Sign Petition Against Trump

That's... Something.

For whatever it’s worth, the literary community does not like Donald Trump.

More than 1,000 writers—including Curtis SittenfeldStephen King, David Eggers, and Junot Díaz—have signed an online petition protesting Trump.

“Because the rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression among his followers, shouts down opponents, intimidates dissenters, and denigrates women and minorities, demands, from each of us, an immediate and forceful response,” read the open letter attached to the petition.
