J K Rowling trolls Trump with Lincoln’s quote

After Trump posted two tweets insulting Morning Joe co- hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski yesterday, the Harry Potter author paired images of his words alongside a poignant sentiment from the 16th US president.

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln," she tweeted.

The quote led to over 35,000 re-tweets for the author.

Trump’s original message — which had referred to Scarborough and Brzezinski as "Psycho Joe" and "low I.Q. Crazy Mika" — claimed that he had denied the MSNBC pundits entry to his Florida hotel Mar-a-Lago when Brzezinski allegedly showed up "bleeding badly from a face-lift", the CNBC reported.

This is not the first time Rowling has attacked Trump on Twitter. She has been vocal against him in the past.

The quote’s origin has been debated, with some believing it came from Bob Ingersoll, a 19th-century jurist, in reference to Lincoln.
