The Election As Told By Harry Potter Characters
Warner Bros.

Witches and wizards that tuned into the 2016 U.S. election probably have a long list of notes on what not to do with their own Ministry of Magic.

Here’s a list of your favorite Harry Potter characters reacting to the presidential election from beginning to end:

When word first got to the Wizarding World about the chosen candidates of the election.

Watching endless amounts of political advertisements.

Dumbledore would not approve your message.

Watching the presidential debates.

Puppets? Nasty women? Ripping babies out of wombs? Muggles are sounding a little loony. Luna Lovegood would agree.

A majority of the Muggle population fighting on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

So many expletives and name-calling! There's not enough parchment paper in Diagon Alley to record these Muggle arguments.

Watching Muggles freak out during Election Day.

They're definitely worse than Hermione during Potions class.

If you didn't (and/or still don't) support Donald Trump, at least support the notion of his idea — Making America Great Again. Create YOUR OWN version of it. Yes, he's POTUS for the next four years. But guess what? You're an American forever. You can still make a difference, whether you're red, white, blue, or wizard.
