ans of J.K. Rowling already know her Twitter presence is a force to be reckoned with. She has a long history of taking on internet trolls, summoning otter photos from fans, and is a vocal critic of the Trump administration. But she did have one nice thing to say about Donald Trump’s leadership skills, kinda.
The famed author is known for standing up for herself online.
Fans of Harry Potter and good Internet alike have enjoyed watching her shut down trolls. Like this epic takedown heard round the world from back in January, when she shut down a Trump supporter who was trying to attack her. Rowling had been a vocal critic of the president’s Muslim ban, and was not at all bothered by someone threatening to burn their own stuff.
She’s never been shy about criticizing Trump.
And has no fear of supporters who might come after her. She shoots back at her challengers, here proudly owning the fact that yes, a professional writer does in fact care a lot about grammar.
But sometimes, she’s also funny.
Sometimes she simply enjoys fooling around with fans. Or, in this case, ex-boyfriends from her days spent in the hospital nursery as an infant caught in a whirlwind romance that ended abruptly.
She’s been regularly lauded by fans for her strong stand against online hate.
It takes a lot of courage to be a woman on the internet saying, well, anything. But standing up for Muslims and gun control, while criticizing President Trump, means her mentions are probably overflowing with abuse from accounts run by American flags and pictures of eagles.
So she finally decided to say something nice about the president.
Well, sort of. While it is technically nice, it doesn’t say much for the president’s grasp on reality. Though if there’s anything this president is known for, it’s his complete disdain for the truth.
And the fans have a lot to say about her latest dig at our disbeliever-in-chief…
