Trump Is Worse than Voldemort, According to JK Rowling

The guy who terrorized the magical Harry Potter universe was a generally shitty dude who was into wizard eugenics and continually tried to kill a young boy, but at least he never tried to ban an entire religion from entering a country.

Read: Donald Trump Just Called for Ending All Muslim Immigration to the US

Presidential hopeful-slash-potential troll-slash-pseudo fascist Donald Trump ascended to a whole new level of batshit nuts on Monday when he publicly called for a freeze on all Muslim immigration and tourism in the US.

Trump's Islamophobic statement has been met with a deluge of opposition from both Democrats and fellow Republican candidates, and a bunch of Harry Potter fans on Twitter started comparing the business mogul to the dark wizard Lord Voldemort.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling must have seen the tweets, because she popped in to shit on the Donald and defend her character—"How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad [as Trump,]" Rowling tweeted.
