J.K. Rowling calls out Donald Trump over typos

Donald Trump’s attempt to silence haters backfired in the best way

"I capitalise certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalised!"

"President Trump didn't write any of his books", O'Brien tweeted on Tuesday.

Instead of "pore over", which means to study carefully, Trump wrote "pour over".

As fans of the Harry Potter writer know, she frequently likes to take shots at the president for a plethora of different reasons, from policy decisions all the way to incorrect spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Spelling errors may be another matter. Rowling also pointed out that Trump is not really a best-selling writer, seeing that all of his books are ghost-written.

This isn't the first time that Rowling has made fun of Trump on social media.

Notorious French gangster escapes from prison in a helicopter
Redoine Faid is believed to have fled with three armed accomplices after ditching the helicopter used in the prison escape. A well-known French criminal has escaped from prison by helicopter, the country's prison authority has said.

Merriam-Webster quickly got involved: The U.S. dictionary mocked Trump on its official Twitter account for his use of the wrong form of "pore" in his tweet, which also included a boast about his "ability to write".

Rowling would post five tweets on the matter, of which three were simple extended "haha" messages until the character limit had been reached.

J.K. Rowling, an award-winning author with many titles to her name spotted the error and offered up a correction. and plenty of laughter.

Her hilarity was prompted by a tweet the U.S. president posted attacking "Fake News" and explaining his idiosyncratic use of capital letters.

Rowling has often criticised Trump on Twitter in the past, once writing "Voldemort was nowhere near as bad" when a publication compared Trump to the Dark Lord. The US President who gave us the infamous covfefe went on another round of self-praising and boasting about his writing skills in a tweet.

Trump soon deleted his original tweet and posted a corrected version.
