J.K. Rowling, known for her sassy remarks on Twitter, recently pointed out one surprisingly positive outcome that came from Trump’s divisive comments on Charlottesville: unity in the Middle East.
On Thursday, August 17, Rowling shared a photo of a TV channel broadcast that reads: “Iran and Israel condemn Trump’s Comments.” Though the Middle East showed an unfavorable response towards Trump’s efforts, Rowling commented on the rare occasion that Iran and Israel have come together.
Unbelievable. He actually did bring the Middle East together. pic.twitter.com/miP9MyVLsS

Albeit inadvertently, Trump and his condemnable Charlottesville response enabled an unforeseen union between these two long-time hostile nations. His most recent foreign policy scheme on the consistent feud amongst the Middle East has been sending his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to the region to engage in peaceful negotiation.
On Wednesday, August 15, Rowling’s Twitter reaction to Trump’s defense of white supremacists displayed a similar style of dry humor.
One good thing about that abomination of a speech: it’s now impossible for any Trump supporter to pretend they don’t know what he is.

Even Stephen King dropped his usual tone of mockery and spoke with a greater sense of gravity on this issue.
Trump must be removed. Republicans, stand up to this obscene man.

While King may have earned a place on Trump’s blocked list on Twitter, he never gave up trolling and voicing his opinions.
Trump cabinet: Your house is on fire. Get out while you still can.
