J.K. Rowling just shut down Donald Trump's Twitter rant with one scathing tweet
One of the beautiful things about Twitter is that it allows us to see the true personalities of our favourite celebrities. Sometimes it's for the good, other times it's for the bad. One person who uses Twitter for their benefit, is JK Rowling. Rowling, who is the author of the infamous Harry Potter books, is quite simply a savage on Twitter.
The English-born writer is well known for her brutal takedowns and outspoken personality when it comes to dealing with Twitter trolls, and it seems like no one is exempt from her scorn - not even the most powerful man in the world.
While Rowling uses Twitter to her benefit, showing both intelligence and sharp humour; the same cannot be said for Donald Trump. Unfortunately, the President is a bit of a loose cannon on Twitter, with him regularly raising that bizarre wispy haircut covered head and descending on bizarre tirades against "fake news" and the Democrats.
On Sunday, the President exploded into a rant about Hillary Clinton, uranium, emails etc... you know, all his favorite things.
Check it out below:
It seemed like it was just another random Trump tirade, however there was definitely one major factor at play here. Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller had already announced that he was ready to begin indictments in the investigation into the colluding between Trump campaigners and Russia - so it's hardly a phony story, Mr President.
When looked at it like this, it's fair to say that it seems as if Trump is trying to wave a smoke screen in front of the eyes of the media. By bashing his orange fingers on his keyboard, the President appears to be trying to draw the world's eyes onto his Twitter account, rather than the ongoing investigation into his election campaign.
It's been a pretty tough few months for Trump, with the Russia story dominating his presidency, and it's easy to see why. First, there was the way he handled the investigation initially, with the President firing FBI Director James Comey when he began to investigate Trump's Russia ties.
But unfortunately for Trump, the firing of the FBI Director had an unintended effect. Due to his suspicious behaviour and to ensure that there was no collusion, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hired special counsel Robert Mueller to look into the claims.
Steve Bannon, who was once Trump's right hand man, believes that the sacking of Comey was one of the biggest mistakes in the President's reign.
"I don’t think there’s any doubt that if James Comey had not been fired, then we would not have a special counsel, yes," Bannon said to interviewer Charlie Rose. "We would not have the [special counsel Robert S.] Mueller investigation. We would not have the Mueller investigation in the breadth that clearly Mr. Mueller is going."
So, what did JK Rowling make of Trump's latest Twitter meltdown? Well it's safe to say that she wasn't too impressed.
