J. K. Rowling "Death Eaters Walk Among Us"

British author J.K. Rowling, best known for her "Harry Potter" book series, weighed in on American politics Sunday, tweeting out a response to a controversial comment made by Katrina Pierson, the campaign spokeswoman for GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

Pierson sent out this tweet in 2012, which has been gaining traction on social media channels this week:

Perfect Obama's dad born in Africa, Mitt Romney's dad born in Mexico. Any pure breeds left? #CNNDebate

— Katrina Pierson (@KatrinaPierson) January 20, 2012

Early Sunday morning, Rowling linked to Pierson's comment in her own tweet and seemed to suggest that the Trump spokeswoman was a "Death Eater."

The popular children's book author was invoking villains from her Harry Potter series -- "Death Eaters" -- known for their "pureblood" fervor. Purebloods, in the Harry Potter universe, are wizards (or witches) whose mother and father were both magical. Death Eaters made it their mission to eradicate any "half-bloods" or "mudbloods" who did not come from a magical family line.

Sanders not surprised ‘media establishment’ backing Clinton

In the wake of the Des Moines Register’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on Sunday said he is not surprised to learn that the “media establishment” is backing the front-runner’s presidential bid.

“We are taking on the economic establishment, we’re taking on the political establishment and, with all due respect, we are taking on the media establishment,” Sanders said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I expect that Secretary Clinton will get a lot of the endorsements from mainstream media, but I have the endorsement – and I’m very proud to say – of 2.5 million individual contributions to my campaign,” he added.

Sanders also said he disagreed with the Register’s reasoning that Clinton is the most qualified candidate in terms of foreign policy experience, pointing to her vote for the war in Iraq as a senator.

Blizzard causes tides higher than Hurricane Sandy

High winds battered the entire East Coast, from North Carolina to New York, reaching 70 mph in Wallops Island, Virginia, late on Friday, whipping up the tides and causing coastal flooding, said meteorologist Greg Gallina of the National Weather Service.

Tides higher than those caused by Superstorm Sandy three years ago pushed water on to roads along the Jersey Shore and Delaware coast and set records in Cape May, New Jersey, and Lewes, Delaware, said NWS meteorologist Patrick O’Hara.

A high tide of 8.98 feet was recorded at 7:51 a.m. on Saturday at Cape May – slightly higher than the record of 8.9 feet previously set by Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012. A high tide of 9.27 feet was recorded at Lewes, higher than the 9.2 feet high tide recorded in March 1962.

Even so, there were only a few evacuations reported along the New Jersey Shore, where thousands of residents had to abandon their homes during the devastating 2012 storm.

The barrier islands near Atlantic City were experiencing significant tidal flooding, said Linda Gilmore, the county’s public information officer.
