J.K. Rowling: Voldemort Is A Nicer Guy Than Donald Trump — Fellow Brit Calls Him Nazi

J.K Rowling slams Donald Trump on Twitter for comments about Muslims

The love of an author for her fictional characters is like a mother’s love for her child. So when people started comparing GOP presidential candidate and billionaire Donald Trump to Voldemort, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling came to her villain’s rescue.

J.K. took to Twitter to declare that the Dark Lord was a much nicer person than Donald Trump, the Guardian reported. And right now, he’d be hard-pressed to find anyone willing to disagree with her.

J.K.’s comments came after Trump continued his personal war against Muslims with his latest, and most divisive, plan yet — an announcement on Monday that he wants to ban anyone professing the Islamic faith from entering the U.S. This summer, the BBC had compiled a number of tweets that compared He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named to the politician, and that comparison was given new life this week.

Rowling’s tweet was made in response to this link, and after J.K.’s devoted fans had already jumped to Voldemort’s defense.

For the uninitiated, Voldemort (otherwise known as Tom Riddle, He-Who-Must-Not-Be Named, or You Know Who), is a “fictional eugenicist and genocidal maniac,” as the Telegraph put it, who devoted his existence to killing the Boy Who Lived: Harry Potter. He was fond of hating people who weren’t like him, the non-magical humans (Muggles) and wizards without “pure” blood, which he would refer to as “Mudbloods.”

Clearly, this fictional villain is not a nice guy, but as far as J.K. Rowling and some of her fans are concerned, he does not deserve to be compared to Trump. Some fans made perhaps a more appropriate comparison, pointing out that the Donald is more like Dolores Umbridge, who has a “penchant for kittens and torturing children.”
