Rowling And Others Speak Out Against Trump's Global Gag Rule

COMMENTS

Some people handle bad news with humor. Maybe that's what this woman was trying to do when she fired off this tweet to Rowling.

Rowling Was Unimpressed, To Say The Least.

Comedian John Fugelsang tried to bring some levity to the situation with this tweet:

Screenshots Always Level The Playing Field.

But that brings up an interesting point. In an interview with Howard Stern, Trump discussed finding out a girlfriend had become unexpectedly pregnant. He admitted to asking her "Well, what are we going to do about this?"

That comment has been widely regarded as being about abortion. Is formerly pro-choice Trump enacting a ban on something he once considered as an option for himself?

Listen to the audio yourself. It's played during this MSNBC spot about the interview.

Nobody is sure what will happen next, but whatever it is we can be pretty well assured that it will be documented and that Rowling and other public figures will have something to say about it.

The world is watching and internet never forgets.
