After Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling criticized President Donald Trump for ignoring a three-year-old disabled boy who tried to shake his hands July 24, the mother of the boy, Marjorie Kelly Weer, hit back at Rowling on Sunday. In a Facebook post, Weer said her son was not trying to shake the president's hands, rather, he was "showing off his newly acquired secret service patch."

Rowling had attacked Trump in a series of tweets after a video surfaced on social media showing the disabled boy extending his hand. In one of the tweets, the creator of the Harry Potter series said: "How stunning, and how horrible, that Trump cannot bring himself to shake the hand of a small boy who only wanted to touch the President."

The president on July 24 interacted with four families who had been adversely affected by Obamacare. These victims narrated their ordeals dealing with "skyrocketing premiums, denied access, restrictions, and low reimbursement rates due to Obamacare’s failing infrastructure," a blog on the White House website read.

The Weer family from South Carolina also expressed their concerns over the stability of the current healthcare system. Their son, Monty, was diagnosed with Spina Bifida, a birth defect in which a developing baby's spinal cord fails to develop properly. "Since his birth, he has been with two different insurance companies and healthcare plans which has made continuity difficult," the blog read.

Apparently, Trump warmly greeted the boy at the beginning of the event held in the Blue Room. The boy and his mother had also visited the White House in June when they were received by Vice President Mike Pence and first lady Melania Trump.

Rowling recieved a backlash for not removing the tweets even after she was proven wrong. Among several people who slammed Rowling for her tweets was former CNN host Piers Morgan.

However, Morgan praised Chelsea Clinton who had also posted a tweet slamming Trump for not shaking hands with the disabled boy, but soon rectified her mistake. Morgan called Clinton a "classy" lady.

Other social media users also attacked the author for her anti-Trump tweets.

Some pictures posted from a Twitter account showed Melania spending extra time with the three-year-old disabled boy.

Rowling has a history of attacking Trump on Twitter. Last week, when Trump barred the transgender people from serving in the military, Rowling mocked the president on the microblogging website. She wrote: "Well, kudos to Aesop. It turns out 'The Frogs Who Desired a King' wasn’t a fable, it was an actual bloody prediction."
