J.K. Rowling FINALLY retracts lying video about Trump, but forgets something really important

Taking three full days to bring herself to apologize, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling still couldn’t bring herself to include President Donald Trump in her mea culpa.

Returning to the scene of her earlier aberration, social media, where Rowling tweeted a selectively edited video and falsely accused the president of ignoring a small boy in a wheelchair at a White House press event, Rowling extended an apology to the boy, 3-year-old Montgomery Weer, and his family.

“I very clearly projected my own sensitivities around the issue of disabled people being overlooked or ignored onto the images I saw,” Rowling wrote. “If that caused any distress to that boy or his family, I apologise unreservedly.”

But she lacked the class to apologize to the person she attacked — President Trump, who she called a “monster of narcissism,” claiming he “pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition.”

“That clip of Trump looking deliberately over a disabled child’s head, ignoring his outstretched hand, has touched me in the raw,” Rowling tweeted on Monday. “How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the President.”

As we now know, Trump did not ignore the young boy and can be seen in a longer video stopping to acknowledge the child, to include bending down to say hello.

The most delicious aspect of the whole calamity is that of all people, Piers Morgan weighed in to defend Trump!

, Morgan ripped the author, taking to Twitter to call her  a “disgraceful liar” as he pushed Rowling relentlessly to apologize.

Morgan also called out Chelsea Clinton, who was only too happy to bash Trump by sharing the selectively edited video Rowling tweeted:

And somehow, we get the feeling Morgan isn’t finished here, given Rowling’s half-hearted apology:
