J.K. Rowling can't stop laughing at Trump's boast

04 Juillet, 2018, 15:51 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

On Tuesday, Trump bragged about his writing skills in a tweet where he misspeled the word "pour", reported The Hill.

Trump should have written that the media "pore" over his tweets, which means 'to read or study attentively - usually used with over'.

Needless to say, Twitter had an absolute field day with the typo, with Harry Potter author J.K Rowling just one of many who gleefully pointed out the mistake.

Merriam-Webster's Twitter account also mocked the president, pointing out the grammatical difference between the words.

The Harry Potter author responded to the Tweet with unending laughs.

"After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake".

Donald Trump's tweet boasts about Trump's best-selling books and his ability to write - and it includes a typo. "I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!" The president pushed back against that claim, saying Schwartz was only a co-author.

But it seems Rowling isn't having any of it, as she found this hilarious as well, and laughed at Trump once more.

Rowling seemed to enjoy the President's take on his authorial prowess, tweeting: 'hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha *draws breath* hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha'.

Trump biographer Tim O'Brien, who wrote "Trump Nation", also weighed in on Trump's tweet, refuting Trump's claim that he had "written many best selling books".
