Donald Trump has many opposers. The manner in which he carries out his policies are subject to more scrutiny than his actual policies are. That is because of Trump’s penchant for attacking whoever he feels isn’t giving him praise. He has his followers enchanted by the idea of “fake news,” allowing his administration to easily push aside stories that are actually truthful just because of a few disparaging comments. The first amendment has never been in more danger than now, with millions of people believing that the press is the enemy. As former US politician and sociologist Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.” 

Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to call The New York Times, one of the most reputable sources of news in the nation, “fake news.” His tweet was in reference to The Times reports that White House counsel Don McGahn was cooperating with Robert Mueller’s investigation. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling responded to Trump’s tweet, re-writing it as many people view it. She posed as Trump, painting him as an immature schoolboy who lashes out at his opposers. “I do’nt care what Kids at School call me because they are all Disgusting Fake Losers and my Real Friends go to a diffrent Scool,” she wrote satirically. “You haven’t heard of and they think Im the Coolest and Smartest and we go to parties and I don’t have to tell you there Names for this to be True.”
