J.K. Rowling Echoes Brutal Message To Our Climate Change Ignorant President

And the message is blunt.

F**k yeah!

On Thursday, President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement, an international effort to combat climate change.

The decision fulfills one of his campaign promises while dampening joint endeavors to curb global warming. The U.S. is the world’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, so Trump’s withdrawal is particularly upsetting to many.

The German newspaper Berliner Kurier ran a front page headline on Thursday in anticipation of Trump’s decision. The cover shows an image of Earth with the headline: “Earth to Trump: Fuck you!”

On Friday, “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling saw the Berliner Kurier’s front page on Twitter and reposted it with the caption: “Very much enjoying the German press at the moment.”

Rowling also sardonically clapped back at Vice President Mike Pence, who has, among other things, openly opposed marriage equality.

He went on “Fox & Friends” to speak about the Paris Agreement withdrawal and told the show, “For some reason, this issue of climate change has emerged as a paramount issue for the left ― in this country and around the world.”

Rowling wasn’t having any of that rubbish.

“Damn those lefties and their so-called science,” she wrote on Twitter. “What are they REALLY up to, that’s the question. Bet you $10 it’s something gay.”

Bloody brilliant, J.K.!
