At the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 8, Meryl Streep’s epic, eloquently-stated anti-Donald Trump speech resonated with many people who are frustrated with the president-elect's hateful ways — even people across the pond.
After listening to Streep's thoughtful words, London-based writers began tweeting their reactions...
...including beloved "Harry Potter" author JK Rowling, who gleefully responded that criticizing Trump is both her "pleasure" and her "duty."
Without hesitation, Rowling published her witty remark on Twitter.
Potter fans immediately became concerned that Rowling set herself up to become Trump's next target.
But Rowling reminded her fans that being called "overrated" by Trump is actually a compliment.
Trump has proven himself to be someone with a hateful, sexist, racist, all-around disgusting mindset.
If someone as awful as Trump held a "good opinion" about Rowling and Streep, what does that say about them as people?
Granted, Rowling isn't clamoring for Trump’s approval. She has called him "offensive" and "bigoted" in public statements in the past.
“I consider him offensive and bigoted," Rowling said at the 2016 PEN Literary Gala & Free Expression Awards in May. She added that Trump has her "full support" to come to her country and be offensive and bigoted there because, "his freedom to speak protects my freedom to call him a bigot."
Last year, she even compared the Trumpster to her most sinister character, Lord Voldemort.
When people were calling Trump by the half-blood wizard’s name, Rowling retorted, “Voldemort was nowhere near as bad.”
At the end of the day, Rowling has nothing to worry about. Trump is all talk, no action.
His insults are weak, at best.
And if successful women like Rowling and Streep are "over-rated," then I guess I want to be considered overrated, too.
