It's common knowledge that Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has a magical way with words, but these internet trolls found out the hard way that her comebacks are just as enchanting.

The British novelist is often vocal about her political views, especially her support for the LGBTQ community and her disdain for Donald Trump. This has attracted some negative attention to her Twitter page, but she instantly summons brutal responses every time. After all, she knows a "load of cobblers" when she sees it.

Check out some of her wittiest take-downs below. You may want to use one the next time a mere muggle has something nasty to say.

By labeling him a "Lone Wolf", the media's dismissing the crime as something conceived and cultivated in his mind alone, and is not reflective of a broader culture against Muslims, or influenced in any way by violent and/or hateful ideology. By not calling him a terrorist, they're protecting said broader culture from scrutiny and placing it squarely on the individual. If this were done on behalf of other terrorists of other races, Islamophobia wouldn't grow into the monster that it is. So, yes -- it's fair to call him a terrorist, inasmuch as it's fair to call any person who kills innocent people a terrorist, regardless of their motivation for doing so.

She said... "When I WORKED for Amnesty International", and what did he do? She didn't even go for it in her come-back reply. Seems to me she's done more than just "talking politics".

Ahahaha. I almost empathise with Trump on this one. So many times I was taken for a Russian here in Korea. Even Russians approach me in Russian here. And everyone has some shallow darkened dim knowledge of Yugoslavia and communism, so they take it for granted it had some Soviet relations, while the truth is Tito was no friend of Stalin, so we were NEVER part of the Soviet union and I HAVE NO RELATIONS TO RUSSIA AT ALL! LITERALLY! Sorry, I had to. Don't take it too serious, it wasn't really a moan, it was my own weird sense of humour. Okay. I stop here. Over'n'out.

Voldemort was at least pretty cool doing it. That's one of my issues with people calling Trump "evil" rather than just "an asshole who got power", there are some fairly class-act evils. Personally, I'm crushing on one Dio Brando.

I think when it comes to movies, because they try to be more "realistic", they have this sort of "unwritten rule" of staying closer to the character descriptions, where in stage performances, appearance-related differences are generally not important, unless specific to the social situations around the character (i.e. If the play / musical concerns race relations, you don't want, say, the persecuted black American character played by a Chinese guy or something, lest the audience get very confused.)

Why doesn't he/she just type "your" and "you". It's already an introduction to a battle that's impossible for Rowling to lose.

That's an important thing: when you publicly stand up against something - ad the internet counts as publicly - it's not just the people you're responding to you can have an effect on. It's everyone else witnessing the debate. People look to people with a platform to shape their opinions - politicians, journalists, and any person famous enough to have public weight. Rowling standing against bigots is like Harry standing against Umbridge: it makes other people brave, too.

If it's 'just words', let's see Trump's reaction if someone came up to his wife and said (using just words) "Melania, I would love to grab your p...y". No, it's not 'just' words.
