Discuss: Is Donald Trump Worse Than Voldemort?
I think it’s safe to say we’ve established that Donald Trump is a racist, xenophobic, sexist, ableist sentient merkin who hopes to be President of the United States — but is he worse than VOLDEMORT? J.K. Rowling, creator of the Harry Potter series, sure thinks so:
However! As one Twitter user astutely put it, “Voldemort was like a mass murderer though.” Voldemort also was down to kill children, had two nostrils but not actually any nose, never trimmed his talons, and is a fictional character.
Trump, on the other hand, has not killed anyone (that we know of), but he has suggested that to defeat ISIS we need to take out their families, which could certainly be interpreted as him being down to kill children, keeps his fingers well manicured, and, in addition to having an actual nose and not just nostrils, he actually uses said nose to breathe in real oxygen, because he is a human and not a made up character in a children’s series.
So, you know, fictional Voldemort may be a murderer, but I gotta go with J.K. here — Trump is definitely worse than He Who Shall Not Be Named, however, putting aside his lack of human form, the latter is definitely close to as bad.
