Author J.K. Rowling - famous for her blockbusting Harry Potter books -- recently decided to get political on Twitter and her post went viral. The only problem? Her post was a deceptively-edited video clip that made it look like President Donald Trump completely ignored a cute little boy in a wheelchair. The tweet which was first posted by Ansel Herz was deleted. But here is the clip from YouTube:
Wow! That looks pretty harsh, doesn't it?
But not so fast. Here's a more complete version that shows the President greeting the little boy first, by kneeling down to talk to him.
J.K. Rowling, however tweeted the fake news video with this teaser, "'When someone shows you who they are, believe them.' - Maya Angelou." She went on to elaborate. "Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition," she wrote.
Then, in a two-part tweet series, she wrote, "This monster of narcissism values only himself and his pale reflections. The disabled, minorities, transgender people, the poor, women (unless related to him by ties of blood, and therefore his creations) are treated with contempt, because they do not resemble Trump."
Within her tweetstorm, she revealed that her mother was confined to a wheelchair, which is why the Trump video touched her so deeply.
However, since it's obviously fake, will she apologize?
