Among the many downsides of being on Twitter is learning how stupid the celebrities from my childhood truly are.
Among them is Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has been afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome — a disease that’s characterized by irrational hatred of the American president — despite living across the Atlantic in the U.K.
She’s spread fake-news stories about the president on numerous occasions, with the most disturbing allegations being when she tweeted a deceptively-edited clip which made it appear that Trump had ignored a wheelchair-bound child trying to shake his hand.
Hey — the woman specializes in peddling fantasy for a reason; her politics are so absurd that they’ve led to a timeline in which former CNN host Piers Morgan is actually the voice of reason.
Back in February, she mocked Piers after a fiery exchange he had with HBO’s Bill Maher in which he was told to “f*** off” for taking the “radical” position that perhaps Trump isn’t the next Hitler. He also defended Trump against the characterization that his travel ban is a “Muslim ban,” because obviously if it were, we’d expect to see more than about 12.5 percent of the world’s Muslim population affected by it.
Since Trump’s travel ban also included a halt on refugee admissions, Rowling took the opportunity to poke fun at Piers’ defense of the policy, asking him if he’d “like a couple of hours to mock up some pictures of refugees carrying explosives to substantiate your position.”

Well, it has been a few months, but Piers finally has those photographs. For anyone out of the loop, it was just days ago, on the 15th, that there was a bombing in the U.K. at the Parsons Green tube station in London. Thirty people were injured, but luckily nobody died. ISIS’s “Amaq News Agency” claimed that an ISIS affiliate was responsible for the attack.
As for the identity of the attackers, The Telegraph reports:
A teenager suspected of being the Parsons Green bomber had been spoken to by police a number of times, neighbours of his foster family claimed today, amid questions over what authorities knew.
The 18-year-old refugee, believed to be Iraqi, was a “problem” to foster parents Penny and Ron Jones and they had been contacting officials saying that they were unable to cope, it was said.
The teenager was arrested at the Port of Dover on Saturday morning on suspicion of planting the home-made bomb which partially detonated on a District Line train on Friday morning, injuring 29 people.
All but one of those caught up in the terror attack, which saw commuters getting crushed as they ran for their lives from the fireball which ripped through the carriage, have now been released from hospital.
Police arrested a second man in connection with the attack on Saturday night. The 21-year-old was held in Hounslow, west London, before searching a home in Stanwell, Surrey connected to one of the Jones’ former foster children.
Well Ms. Rowling, there’s your refugee with explosives.
