JK Rowling Brilliantly Scolds ‘Tiny, Tiny, Tiny Little’ Trump For Shoving Leader at NATO Ceremony
British author J.K. Rowling just gave tiny-fingered Donald Trump an epic smackdown on Twitter after a video surfaced of Trump apparently shoving the prime minister of Montenegro out of the way during a meeting for a NATO summit at the agency’s headquarters in Brussels, Belgium on Thursday.
J.K. Rowling accurately describes Trump
In the video. Trump seemingly comes out of nowhere, appears to shove the NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) leader aside, smiling smugly. He adjusts his tie and seems to bask in all the attention he’s getting.
And that made Rowling furious, Raw Story reports.
So she vented on Twitter, with a GIF showing Trump shoving Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic aside:
You tiny, tiny, tiny little man.

Within minutes the post was shared nearly 10,000 times and was liked nearly 20,000 times by her 10.4 million followers. As of this writing, her tweet has been shared more than 55,000 times and has more than 115,000 likes.
Trump’s entire trip to the Middle East and Europe has been pockmarked by his childish, bull in the china shop behavior, beginning with wife Melania slapping his hand away, his not knowing Israel is part of the Middle East, the awkwardness at the Vatican, and his attacking Germany.
In other words, Trump’s trip has been a giant foreign policy disaster.
Steve Kopack, CNBC’s breaking news desk reporter was apparently one of the first to show the now-viral shove seen around the world on the social media.
“Did Trump just shove another NATO leader to be in the front of the group?” he tweeted.
The GIF he shared to his nearly 30,000 followers garnered more than 35,000 favorites and over 32,000 shares.

For those who weren’t sure what went on, he even slowed the video down to make it clearer what happened.
“Slo-mo: Trump appears to push aside/shove another NATO leader to get to the front of the group,” he reported. “Update: Dusko Markovic of Montenegro is the person Trump pushed. Quite the welcome to the alliance. Montenegro becomes NATO member on June 5.”
The White House tried to defend Trump’s dumbfoolery by saying it was a “casual greeting” between leaders, The Huffington Post reports. However, that silly statement didn’t prevent the video from going viral.
And as soon as Rowling had her say, Twitter users also couldn’t resist getting a few tweets in.
Some referenced his clumsy stupidity at the Vatican:

Others stuck to the shovepocalypse:
@jk_rowling “I’m the President of the USA, get out of my way whoever you are…who are you anyway? Montenegro? Sad little country, sad…now MOVE!”

You get the idea.
These people slapped Trump pretty hilariously, and the rest of us get to enjoy it.
