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.

The Wizarding World has experienced its fair share of chaos with dark witches and wizards running amok, but nothing's scarier than a bunch of Muggles acting like Death Eaters.

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.

Did the Daily Prophet get it right? Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton?

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.

Trying to pick a candidate to support.

Does the candidate choose the wizard?

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.

WAIT, what is Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram?

Realizing Muggles can’t agree to disagree.

Watching Muggles freak out during Election Day.

They're definitely worse than Hermione during Potions class.

MORE social media fighting.

How are Muggles going to co-exist after this?!

Waiting for the results to come in.


The Wizarding World's become invested in the outcome too, because hello, Muggle Relations!

Officially hearing who the elected candidate is.

All of us — Muggles, witches, wizards, squibs, giants, centaurs, house-elves — we've all waited so long for it to be over!

The country's made its decision.

But whether you feel like this about the results:

Or this about the results:

You've got to stay involved.

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.

He’s Not My President, And I’m Sorry That He’s Yours

I refuse to acknowledge him as "my" president, he doesn't deserve it.

It's been about two years since Donald Trump has officially taken office and became your president. I say "your" because he is not my president and I refuse to acknowledge him as such. I refuse to associate this man with one of the most powerful titles because he does not uphold the standards of what it means to be president. Donald Trump is a failed businessman, WrestleMania participant, and T.V. personality, but he is no president.

In the past, we've elected leaders whose ideas and vision for this nation didn't align with mine, but Donald Trump is another kind of malevolence that I refuse to believe runs the United States of America. Go ahead, call me all the names in the book; snowflake, libtard, or whatever your petty, little heart desires—your president still incompetent and runs his platform based off of false hope, an abundance of lies, and a xenophobic agenda.

This man single-handedly fooled an entire group of people that the United States was going to build a wall at the southern-most border (as if there isn't already a wall there) to keep out "criminals" (undocumented immigrants fleeing their country in order to survive) and said Mexico was going to pay for it (which they never did and never will.) This entire plan was flawed from the beginning; it was founded upon hate and pure ignorance. I hate to break it to you, but this country was founded upon immigrants and that's never going to change.

Your president even had a temper tantrum and shut down the government for 35 days, he doesn't care about the citizens of this nation, and to be quite frank, he never did in the first place. He never will unless it benefits him in some way. We're talking about the same man who addresses woman like their objects, views minorities like criminals, opposition for the LGBTQ community, makes a mockery of disabled people, honestly, the list can go on and on. What makes you genuinely believe he cares about you?

President's Day was initially created to celebrate George Washington's Birthday but eventually was adapted to commemorate the presidency as a whole somewhere along the line. So this President's Day, as we reflect upon your President's legacy for what he's created thus far, I'm sorry. I'm not sorry he'll be remembered as one of the worst presidents to go down in history and I can't wait until this nightmare is over.
