JK Rowling, Piers Morgan Battle on Twitter Over Trump

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and former America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan got into an epic Twitter battle on Saturday (Jan. 11).

It all started Friday night during Bill Maher’s HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher. Sitting in on the night’s panel, comedian Jim Jefferies basically handed Morgan his ass in an argument over President Donald Trump and his policies.

Some of you may remember that Morgan competed in and won Trump’s reality show, Celebrity Apprentice in 2008. Ever since he and Trump have been best buds.

After Morgan insisted there was no “Muslim ban,” Jefferies cut him off “Oh, f*ck off. It’s a f*cking Muslim ban,” Jefferies said. “He said there was a Muslim ban. It’s a Muslim ban.”

After Morgan accused Jefferies of trafficking in “hysteria,” the comedian retorted: “This is what you do, Piers. You say, ‘He hasn’t done this, he hasn’t done that, he’s not going to do all these things.’ Give him a f*cking chance, mate. Hitler didn’t kill the Jews on the first day, he worked up to it, mate.”

Then Jefferies went for the low blow: “You just like that you won The Apprentice and you have a famous friend, mate. That’s all you f*cking like,” he said.

The next day, Rowling weighed in on twitter. Morgan fired back. Hilarity ensued. I’d say Rowling pretty much owned him.

Neener neener. I’ll never read your book. Hoo boy.

In other Trump news, Spice boy, White House spokesman Sean Spicer tried to discredit a New York Times report that insisted Trump lounged around in a bathrobe, stewing, in his White House quarters late at night, by claiming the president “definitely doesn’t” wear a bathrobe. As expected, the internet proved otherwise pretty quickly.

To be fair, that photo looks to be decades old. But not so fast! In 2006 on the Apprentice, daughter Ivanka let slip that daddy dearest wore a pink bathrobe. The clip is from Season 5 in 2006. Only 10 years ago!
