Here's a tale for ya! There's this guy, Donald Trump. You might know his as some filthy stinkin' rich white dude who'se hoping to become the Republican presidential candidate. People are not very happy with him because he suggested Muslims be banned from America in some attempt to stop terrorism? It sounds crazy, because it is crazy. 

BBC pointed out that a handful of folks started comparing Trump to Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter's arch nemesis. When J.K. Rowling caught wind of the comparison, she was bummed, because she thinks Donald is actually worse than her character creation.

It's wise to point out that yes, obviously Trump is worse than old man Voldy because Harry Potter isn't real, and Donald can affect the lives of actual humans in real time.
