Piers Morgan, journalist and television personality, came to President Donald Trump’s defense following outrageous comments from famous author J.K. Rowling. Rowling falsely accused Trump of ignoring a little boy in a wheelchair; video evidence proved that Trump did indeed shake the little boy's hand, but the author refused to take back her accusations. 

After Rowling called Trump's action of not shaking the little boy's hand "stunning and horrible," Morgan replied by mocking her comment. Morgan referred to Rowling's lies as "stunning and horrible." In later posts, he mentioned that even after actual, unedited video footage was released, she still did not take the tweets down.

Morgan does not agree with all of Trump’s decisions. In fact, he was very against Trump’s transgender military ban; however, Morgan points out that it is completely wrong to criticize Trump for something he clearly did not do.

J.K. Rowling’s above tweet was only one in a series of 8 tweets bashing President Donald Trump on Friday, July 28th. Her other messages to the president were very low. What do you think about Piers Morgan coming to Trump’s defense? Share your thoughts in our Facebook comments. Thank you!
