Someone should just put JK Rowling and Trump in a boxing ring together and let them punch out their differences.
The Harry Potter author is back at it again, taking a break from penning fantastical stories about underage wizards to rinse the President of the United States on Twitter.
Trump’s come under fire again (I feel like I write this phrase at least five times a week) for his response to Hurricane Harvey.
People thought his behaviour when he visited Houston was a bit tone-deaf and boneheaded:
“What a crowd, what a turnout,” Trump said from atop this firetruck, addressing hurricane victims. pic.twitter.com/0EdsLctHDi

One of those people was Rowling, who delivered this swift and brutal burn:
Close your eyes. Open a telephone directory. Point at the page. Open your eyes. That's the name of the person who could do better than this. https://t.co/Zd3Feox1Gz

Aaaaannnd then of course, everyone piled on:
It should also be said it doesn't matter which country the telephone directory is from, they'll still be better qualified.

This is my cat. She mostly sleeps. And she bites. And she'd be better at this. pic.twitter.com/bDnLRBabHW

It’s just the last in a series of Rowling burns – taking pot shots at POTUS for his handling of the ‘America has heaps of real Nazis’ scandal
