“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling targeted a recent tweet from President Donald Trump — which itself targeted a report from The New York Times claiming White House counsel Don McGahn was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
“Some members of the media are very angry at the fake news story in The New York Times. They actually called and to complain and apologize — a big step forward. From the day I announced, the Times has been fake news and with their disgusting new board member, it will only get worse,” read Trump’s tweet.

But Rowling, long an outspoken anti-Trumper, decided to give the president’s tweet a bit of a rewrite.
Purposefully using bad spelling and grammar errors, Rowling wrote, “I do’nt care what Kids at School call me because they are all Disgusting Fake Losers and my Real Friends go to a diffrent Scool you haven’t heard of and they think Im the Coolest and Smartest and we go to parties and I don’t have to tell you there Names for this to be True.”

The “Harry Potter” author is obviously trying to make a point about Trump’s Twitter tirades — but this storyteller is hardly the best messenger for such a point.
She is one of many celebrities with an inability to see or think straight when it comes to the current sitting president.
Rowling had previously spread fake news herself about Trump, insisting with an edited video that he had refused to shake the hand of a boy in a wheelchair.
The video was, of course, bogus.
She’s even picked fights with fans because they disagree with her about Trump.
