J.K. Rowling Drags Piers Morgan on Twitter for Defending Trump

People are praising J.K. Rowling after she sparred on Twitter with Piers Morgan, who was told to “f–k off” on television for defending President Trump.

The British television personality was appearing on Friday night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher when comedian Jim Jefferies told him to “f–k off” for claiming that Trump‘s travel ban is not a “Muslim ban.”

Rowling shared the clip on Twitter and wrote, “Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to f–k off on live TV is *exactly* as satisfying as I’d always imagined.”

Morgan replied by saying, “This is why I’ve never read a single word of Harry Potter,” and it led to her dragging him whenever he responded.

    Piers sucks – one way or the other.

    i totally get both sides this argument … i just wish people could have a thoughtful debate instead of getting so emotional.

  • Cooper

    All I see is two people both screaming at each other and not admitting the real truth to themselves. One the refugees aren’t the problem. The problem are that terrorist groups who are sezing cities in these countries are taking over visa computers and yes sending people here who shouldn’t be. That’s a fact. But again most refugees aren’t dangerous to us it’s the minority who are. Is this a Muslim ban? Yes in a way but it’s also countries where it’s the predominant religion and countries that no one can deny that hasn’t issued and with terrorism. Would you want any of these people in your house? Rowling isn’t helping to house any of these people nor does her opinion have that much weight to what we legislate in this country. She isn’t a citizen. That being said Trump and his admin. Were sloppy as F- it’s clearly in part a Muslim ban but also why wasn’t Saudi Arabia on the list? Yes they work with us better than say Iraq but terrorism has come from that state it should be under the ban. Is it because of Trumps business interest in Saudi Arabia? Cause that is a huge concern people are ignoring.

  • Minha Sincera Opinião!

    bla bla bla. JK wins

  • Phil the Donahue

    15 of the 19 terrorists from 9/11 were from and citizens of Saudi Arabia. Trump has a golf course there so his ban is absolute bullshit just like his shitty brain.

  • Cooper

    Agreed which is why it should be on there. I can’t believe no one questioned that. It’s a glaring and obvious conflict of interest. Why mess with Ivanka when you should be attacking that?

  • Cooper

    Says someone who can’t even conversate. That’s what happens when you have very little education.

  • VanityInsecurity

    2 Brits who don’t live in the US & have such an investment in our politics. I get it USA is a super power we set the example.. but c’mon worry about your Brexit & the EU. first.

    Clap back season is no joke these days ! Damn ! I love her !

  • also…

    I agree with that but Pierce is close with Teump and won’t shut up about him.

  • also…

    On one hand he has every right to support whoever he wants to but I see her point because he is obnoxious. Insufferable.

  • Joy

    Oh god she’s fantastic! :D

  • Joy

    “Conversate” and education in the same thought!

  • VanityInsecurity

    that works both ways..

    And she has every right to criticize him for it. See how that works? 👍🏽

  • also…

    When did I say she doesn’t have the right to criticize him? 🙄

  • GroundControl500

    If you don’t think an ignorant and unstable occupant in the White House doesn’t endanger the ENTIRE world then you need some remedial education.

  • VanityInsecurity

    oh from you I suppose? stop b4 you actually make me laugh. worry about your own backyard first…

  • AeeJay

    your opinion doesn’t make things factual you know.. they are like assholes.. you know the rest.

  • AeeJay

    you never even hear these people condemn their own country.. just everyone else’s.

  • AeeJay

    You know, she has been on twitter lately arguing with so many people.. alot of time on her hands without Harry Potter books to write.

    FUCK PIERS!!!!!!

  • Pat Kerr

    Piers Morgan lost his job as editor of a UK newspaper partially for publishing fake photographs and phoning hacking. He often gets into spats due to his outlandish claims of his abilities and skills – sound like any one else ?

  • Pat Kerr

    I think you need to check on JK Rowling – she has certainly been critical of her own country over the last few years.

  • Pat Kerr

    What is “conversate” – it is not English but used in street talk. You use it and complain about others having no education – wow

  • Cooper

    lol it’s informal verb. We are on a blog idiot hence why you can use it. I’m not writing a letter to congress or memo for work. Again another dingbat.

  • Cooper

    Impossible in today’s political climate. I have so many friends and family who aren’t speaking because of the election it’s ridiculous. The only time I talk politics is on message boards/blogs like this with strangers. Heck even at my work people are at eo throats during water cooler talk.

  • Cooper

    She is also a billionaire so she doesn’t need to write books. I think she is arrogant though. Even when it came to questions about her books from fans. She is so dismissive of them and their ideas/theories they come up with.

  • Cooper

    Exactly it’s not like the brits are perfect. We all know brexit happened in part because they wanted to control their immigration. They may not be as outwardly offensive as Trump but don’t pretend like you are different. The brits need to pull their head out of their ass.
