The Harry Potter author fired back in typically fierce style on Monday after journalist Oliver Willis sarcastically tweeted that Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, would all be Slytherin alumni.
“You’ve got to get the letter before you put on the hat, Oliver,” Rowling wrote.
The tweet seemed to imply that the trio would not follow in the footsteps of dark wizard Lord Voldemort by becoming Slytherins ― because they wouldn’t even be invited to the school of witchcraft and wizardry in the first place.
Perhaps Rowling’s previous claim that Donald Trump is actually worse than “He Who Shall Not Be Named” has something to do with it. Twitter users thought her subtle trolling of the Trumps was pure magic.
