Reading the news still feels too much like reading Harry Potter books 6 & 7, in which Voldemort consolidates his power as a racist dictator supported by a puppet bureaucracy and by a few chosen favorites forever squabbling with each other.
However, unlike our current figurehead, Voldemort is capable of choosing words sequenced in an order that effects a generally understood and accepted meaning.
Some days it really does feel like Voldemort has taken over the Ministry of Magic.
Because I prefer my pop culture moldy, I finally read Harry Potter this month. In 2017. And after months of reading jokes about how Trump is like Voldemort, I’m here to tell you that:
HOLY F**K YOU GUYS TRUMP IS LIKE VOLDEMORT.
Except he’s stupider. And has a nose (I think). And probably can’t talk to snakes (but if he could would the MSM be brave enough to report on it do we need frickin’ crowdfunding to maintain the basic functions of a democratic society’s media infrastructure that could accurately report on the presence of parselmouths in our government?!?!?!?!!?!?!??)
