J.K. Rowling Shows Two Faces Of Donald Trump On International Women's Day

Oh, the hypocrisy!

To honor International Women’s Day, President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday about his “tremendous respect for women” and celebrated “the critical role of women here in America & around the world.”

Trump’s tweets were simple, elegant and ― dare we say ― presidential. But his polished words definitely weren’t fooling author and feminist J.K. Rowling.

Hours after POTUS sent off his International Women’s Day tweets, Rowling fired back at Trump using his own words against him. The “Harry Potter” author quoted Trump’s tweet from that morning along with another, more memorable quote of his. This quote was more candid and appeared to indicate what Trump really thinks of women.

“I did try and fuck her. She was married. I moved on her like a bitch,” a black-and-gold poster read, quoting a 2005 recording of Trump during the filming of “Access Hollywood.”

“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful. ...  I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. ... I don’t even wait,” read the poster. “And when you’re a star they let you do it. ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

At the bottom of the poster was a reminder of the stark reality we live in: The quote was attributed to “The President of the United States.”

Rowling wasn’t the only person who called out Trump’s hypocrisy on the women’s day. 

The president’s tweet received hundreds of replies from people who pointed out more of his misogynistic behavior, his anti-abortion executive order and the fact that his administration has separated mothers from their families through deportations.
