Piers Morgan has called JK Rowling "a shameless, lying hypocrite" after she hit out at US President Donald Trump in a series of tweets about his alleged refusal to shake a disabled child's hand.
Footage appeared on social media that showed Trump repeatedly ignoring the youngster as he reached up to shake his hand, prompting the author to send a series of critical tweets, calling the president a "monster of narcissism".
Rowling claimed he had "pretended not to see" a boy in a wheelchair as he met with "victims of Obamacare" before a press conference on July 24.
The 'Good Morning Britain' host has since tweeted a series of pictures showing the president greeting the child and has criticised Rowling for lying and neither deleting the tweets and apologising.

This is Trump greeting that boy.
Why won't she delete & apologise? pic.twitter.com/c61cqRoBzE
Now that things are sinking in, why have you not deleted your horrible lies about Trump & the disabled boy? https://t.co/Xx9IbM7waR— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 30, 2017
