J.K. Rowling burns Donald Trump in 3 magical tweets


The 2016 election does seem like far-fetched fiction starring wizards and he-who-must-not-be-named.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling live-tweeted the town hall-style presidential debate with pointed responses and quoteable 140-character musings.

Rowling reworked Trump's vulgar and predatory comments:

'It's your fault I didn't pay taxes, Hillary. Women let you do anything when you're a star.'

She clarified the importance of Trump's framing:

Trump says 'just words, folks.' It's his accusation and his defence. Words don't matter. Facts don't matter. If they don't, we're all lost.
