The creator of Harry Potter, ninth-best-selling fiction author of all time, J.K. Rowling can now add the title "Queen of the Twiiter Troll" to her list of accomplishments.
Trump sent out the following tweet trying to explain the reason for his cancelled trip to London.
Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
Very few bought into the explanation for a variety of reasons.
*snicker* Talk about Fake News. Obama had absolutely NOTHING to do with that. It was George Bush who did it for security reasons. So sad that no one in your crew can use Google to check these things.— Lizabeth S. Tucker (@LizabethSTucker) January 12, 2018
Also, you aren't welcome in London, or anywhere else in Great Britain.
The problem with that explanation is that Trump's tweet misrepresented the history of the U.S. Embassy move. According to the State Department and the U.S. Embassy itself, it was the administration of President George W. Bush not Obama.— Eno mobers (@Treehuggingsens) January 12, 2018
But trump likes to blame a black man
But it was Rowling who was able to summon what everyone was thinking in the wordless tweet.
Yep. That's a chicken emoji. One of the most celebrated writers in modern time just called the President of The United States a chicken.
And people love it!
Can we still do the protest anyway? It would be a great way to get out of the house and meet new people.— Alistair Coleman (@alistaircoleman) January 12, 2018
Although there was some debate if Rowling meant to call Trump a chicken.
I took it as her calling him a chicken, but I could very well be wrong. :)— Timothy Thomas Cole (@TimothyThomasCo) January 12, 2018
2018 is gearing up to be a very long year.
