J.K. Rowling Slams Trump for Snubbing Boy in a Wheelchair

J.K. Rowling has spoken out to slam President Trump after he appeared to ignore a boy in a wheelchair’s attempt to shake his hand.

While greeting a group of people on Friday (July 28), the little boy in the wheelchair held his hand in the air and Trump shook several other people’s hands, except his.

An extended cut of the video does show that Trump greeted the boy when he entered the room before his speech. The video that is going viral shows the president leaving the room after the speech.

Rowling posted the video on her Twitter account along with the Maya Angelou quote, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition. 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,” Rowling wrote.

    Why doesn’t JK Rowling worry about HER OWN COUNTRY. STFU about our President already. She’s obsessed. CLEARLY Trump didn’t mean to snub the little kid, stop trying to make something where there is nothing. There were a ton of people there, he’s managing the room, it happens. Rowling is just a troll at this point who is obsessed with Trump. Write another book and stay out of politics. Your lukewarm detective series needs a little more oomph, maybe concentrate on that.

    Except that he crouched down and spoke to the little boy for about 12 seconds earlier. This was edited out, numbskull. So shut the fuck up, media.

  • Steven DePriest

    The President DIDN’T snub the little boy. This is an edited piece. Youtube has the entire speech and if you skip to the 5:35 mark, you can see the President shakes the little boys hand FIRST and reaches down to speak to him. FULL SPEECH: President Trump Gives a Speech on Healthcare 7/24/17 is the title. Look at it yourself.

  • Steven DePriest

    FULL SPEECH: President Trump Gives a Speech on Healthcare 7/24/17 on Youtube: This video proves J K Rowling is a liar. Skip to the 5:35 mark and watch the President enter the room and shake the little boys hand FIRST, and then bend over to speak to him.

    It’s a good time to invest in life preserver companies. Trump’s ignorant flock of lemmings are going to need them as the ship they’re on continues to sink.

  • rosaryblue

    There is no sinking ship unless you are a corrupt Democrat….

  • rosaryblue

    oh and ps. Rowling is spreading FAKE NEWS and you’re still on Trump. #sheeple

  • Klaus Von Beagleman DeRothschi

    why is it sinking our anti disabled white supremacy plan is coming along quite nicely.

    Actually YOU ARE FAKE news – JK Rowling is absolutely a liar here – she posted fake outrage with an edited video without checking the story.

    Stupid cow, she believes all the edited lies of the MSM, Trump made a beeline for the boy when he entered the room and gave him special attention above the other kids.

  • suzybel

    C’mon j.k., tweet the whole story, not just the part that you want people to hear. He greeted the boy earlier. Play fair.

  • Monica

    But in the whole video, Trump did shake the boy’s hand. In fact, he spoke to him first.

  • Barbara’s Political Rantings

    J.K. is a typical nasty, hateful, vile liberal. Lying is what they do best.

    J.K. Rowling is always on Trump, she should mind her own business about the United States and just stick to that little dump of an island where she lives, she is so stupid , last time she got on Trump for a misspelled word, the spell checker dose that to me all the time if I don’t watch it ,so what, she is suppose to be a big writer and she don’t know that, I say if you can understand it Rowling so what
