Piers Morgan called out J.K. Rowling over some tweets she sent out criticizing President Donald Trump.

The "Harry Potter" author went off on DJT after seeing the now-viral video showing POTUS ignoring the handshake of a wheelchair bound boy. Rowling went off on Twitter saying, “Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition.”

It turned personal when Rowling continued, “My mother used a wheelchair. I witnessed people uncomfortable around her disability, but if they had a shred of decency they got over it. So, yes, that clip of Trump looking deliberately over a disabled child’s head, ignoring his outstretched hand, has touched me on the raw.”

On Sunday morning though, Piers Morgan, jumped in with the unedited version of that same footage, which showed the president going up and greeting the boy before his speech.

“So J.K. Rowling’s been back on Twitter but neither deleted, nor apologized for, this disgraceful lie," Morgan said. "Her Trump-loathing knows no honesty.”

Rowling has yet to respond.

The “Good Morning Britain” host then turned his attention to former first-daughter Chelsea Clinton, who had retweeted Rowling’s tweet.

“Why have you not undone your retweet of this lie, Chelsea Clinton?,” Morgan Tweeted.

Unlike Rowling, however, Clinton immediately replied. “Hello Piers-I hadn't seen the full video until now. I removed the retweet," she responded, "And, the President should have shaken the boy's hand at the end.”

Morgan concluded with, “Thank you, Chelsea. That is the right thing to do. Over to you, J.K. Rowling...”
