JK Rowling has once again politely thrashed President Donald Trump on social media.

After Trump attacked MSNBC’s ‘ Morning Joe’ co-host Mika Brzezinski for an alleged face-lift and called her “low I.Q” and “crazy,” the ‘Harry Potter’ author replied by posting a quote from Abraham Lincoln on Twitter.

She wrote, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

MSNBC also released a statement, calling it “a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job.”

Rowling has been quite vocal about showing her disappointment over Trump’s decisions. Rowling has previously defended her right to criticise the Trump regime, despite not being an American citizen, arguing, “When a man this ignorant & easy to manipulate gets within sniffing distance of the nuclear codes, it’s everyone’s business.”
