J.K. Rowling has *thoughts* on Donald Trump’s extremely large handwriting

J.K. Rowling is no stranger to voicing her opinions about politics and the Trump family on social media, even though she recently took a hiatus. However, after Trump announced on Twitter yesterday, May 9th, that all negative coverage of him is fake news, the Harry Potter author took to Twitter to reestablish herself as the reigning queen of the internet (and the clapback).

Rowling retweeted another user’s post that called attention to Trump’s extremely large signature. The tweet read, “Why? Why is his signature so big? Why, god, why?” (LOL). Rowling swiftly responded with, “I didn’t believe in graphology until about three minutes ago.” For those who don’t know, graphology is the study of handwriting and allegedly reveals key personality traits. It’s been around since the days of Aristotle, and it’s used in hiring processes, criminal investigations, and even healthcare.

Rowling retweeted an analysis of Trump’s handwriting style, which states people with particularly large handwriting are typically arrogant, conceited, and haughty, and likely someone “who needs to exhibit compliments and recognitions, tyrant tendencies, exhibitionist and phony personality that may become megalomaniac with a lack of critical sense.”


This isn’t the first time Rowling has taken to social media to share her thoughts on U.S. politics. Last year she schooled conservative TV personality Tomi Lahren on former President Barack Obama’s true legacy, and declared Trump as being worse than Lord Voldemort.

Whether you agree with the merits of graphology or not, we can all safely agree on one thing: Donald Trump’s signature is very, very large.
