J.K. Rowling’s Anti-Trump tirade backfires, look what karma just did to her
By Christopher Feery|August 1, 2017

The anti-Trump brigade was out in full force when a new shocking video made the rounds.   

Among those to pile on was billionaire ‘Harry Potter’ author JK Rowling, who found herself so riled up that she dropped a short story on Twitter.

There was a slight problem with both Rowling’s indignation – and the video itself. The Daily Wire shares the scoop on that.

What a beautifully written condemnation of a wicked president! Oh, wait — the video Rowling shared (which has since been deleted by its original poster, Ansel Herz, deputy communications director for Rep. Pramila Jayapal) is a deceptively edited piece of propaganda.

The video in question makes it look as if Trump completely snubbed a boy in a wheelchair. Nothing could’ve been further from the truth, but good luck getting an apology or retraction from those that took it as gospel.

Progressives are in such a hate-frenzy that they will share anything that makes the president look callous, evil, or crazy. It doesn’t matter if what’s being shared is factual or manufactured as long as it reinforces the progressive narrative about Trump.

If and when the lie is publicly revealed, the progressive who propagated the lie will shrug it off, and say that despite the inaccuracy of the video or story, the overall “sentiment” is representative of Trump’s cruelty or insanity.

To date, Rowling’s Twitter tirade remains alive and well on her timeline. Despite it being pointed out that the video was a complete fabrication, she has yet to offer up any kind of explanation or apology.

UPDATE: The boy’s mother called Rowling out on Facebook. From Fox News:

But the boy’s mother, Marjorie Kelly Weer, posted on Facebook: “Trump didn’t snub my son & Monty wasn’t even trying to shake his hand.”

Rowling, 3 days later, removed the tweet and posted an apology:

It took her long enough, but at least she can acknowledge her mistake.  Unfortunately for her, she highlights one of the left’s biggest problems: their bias is so strong, they are willing to twist the truth (consciously or not) to fit it.

So for Rowling, when Trump doesn’t shake every person’s hand, he hates disabled children.  Liberals need a reality check: we have one of the most pro-America presidents in decades, a man for all the people and not the elites.

Time for them to start checking their facts before they blast out judgment—and pay the price in reputation, viewership, and readership when they lie and smear our President. Will you be picking up Rowling’s next book?
