Well-known author J.K. Rowling trolled President Donald Trump on Thursday with just one quote:
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
That quote, which she attributed to President Abraham Lincoln, led to over 35,000 re-tweets for the author.
Rowling was responding to Trump’s tweet about MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, in which Trump attacks Brzezinski’s looks and Scarborough’s intelligence.
“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..,” stated Trump’s tweets, “…to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”
This isn’t the first time the “Harry Potter” author has attacked Trump on Twitter. She’s been vocal against him in the past.
While Rowling put the words in Lincoln’s mouth, there is some disagreement over the quote’s origin. But Rowling didn’t let that get in the way of her point.
