    J.K. Rowling Canít Stop Laughing At Trumpís Boast About His Expert Writing Skills

    The Harry Potter author poured it on thick after the presidentís tweet about his subtle genius included a typo.

    By Rebecca Shapiro

    J.K. Rowling had a good laugh on Tuesday when President Donald Trump tweeted about his expert writing skills.

    The president criticized the press for ďpouring overĒ his tweets ďlooking for a mistakeĒ even though he had written ďmany best selling booksĒ and was proud of his writing skills. Besides the fact that Trump biographer Tim OíBrien quickly tweeted that the president did not write any of his books, Trumpís latest tweet included a glaring typo: pour instead of pore.



    Rowling, the award-winning author of the seven-book Harry Potter series, seemed to enjoy the presidentís take on his alleged writing prowess.

    snip

    Trumpís ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz, described the process of authoring Trumpís The Art of the Deal, revealing to The New Yorker that he wrote the whole book. The president pushed back against that claim, saying Schwartz was only a co-author.

    From now on, we'll all be poring over every one of his Tweets, looking for......oh, wait, we've already been doing that. Looking for further signs of mental instability, dementia, and detachment from reality.

    Yeah. Honestly, that’s exactly how I would have spelled (misspelled) that. And I was an English teacher.

    People make lots of typos on phones, to me that doesn't mean anything, but I would think one would try a bit harder if the tweet is all about awesome writing skills.

    I make them all the time, do not bother to check, but my posts are not read by millions or go on the news dozens of times.
