JK Rowling throws amazing Harry Potter shade at Donald Trump

2015-12-08
JK Rowling has publicly slammed Donald Trump with an impeccable Harry Potter refrence following the US Republican presidential candidate's latest controversial comment that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States indefinitely. Trump's comments were made yesterday following last week's shooting in California where a Muslim couple, believed to have been radicalised IS supporters, opened fire and killed 14 people. jk rolwing In a campaign statement, the billionaire businessman - who terrifyingly remains the front-runner in the race for the Republican party's 2016 election nomination - said a "complete" shutdown of Muslim immigration should remain until the US authorities "can figure out what the hell is going on". Trump's comments were slammed by The White House as completely "contrary to US values", and prompted various social media users to compare him to the irredeemably evil Dark Wizard Lord Voldermort from Rowling's Harry Potter series. One user even commented that Trump's infamous comb-over was probably a 'Horcrux' that would have to be destroyed to stop the billionaire tycoon. https://twitter.com/Cirrhosis/status/673987883183673344 https://twitter.com/TechnicallyRon/status/673990318887452672 After picking up on the comments, Rowling took to Twitter to clarify that Trump was not in fact like Voldemort: He's actually far worse. https://twitter.com/jk_rowling/status/674196610683940864 "How horrible", the famously outspoken author wrote alongside to a link to the a story reporting the comparisons.
