Marco Rubio, the last establishment candidate left in the running on the GOP side in an election that has truly become a thing of nightmares has been called many things; Marco Roboto, “never shows up for work Marco” and an anchor baby. But the latest is the most bizarre to date and actually came from one of his own super PAC’s.
Politico reports that a pro-Rubio super PAC sent a fundraising mailer out on Monday that cast Rubio and Trump as characters straight out of the Harry Potter movies – Rubio as the boyish, kind hearted, adorable Harry Potter and Trump as the evil, conniving, dangerous Lord Voldemort. Interesting. So they are saying that Harry was secretly a rabid anti choice, pro immigration, anti gay marriage, anti equal pay for women and thought climate change is a big old lie type person. Never would have pegged him for harboring those types of views. Well, his best friend in the movies was a girl who was equally as bad ass as him at magic and I don’t think he would have been ok with her getting 77 cents (or whatever their monetary exchange was in the movie) for the same magic as him, right? Details.
Trump as Lord Voldermort I can actually see a bit more. Voldemort, with the bizarre nose and skin color kind of mirrors Trump’s weird hair and orange oompa loompa orange skin tone. Voldemort was obsessed with “blood purity,” somewhat similarly to Trump promising to build a wall to stop those awful Mexican’s from coming to the US and deporting 1.6 billion evil Muslims. He is also a raging psychopath, unconcerned by the feelings of others. This could fit Trump, as shown by his insane rants at town halls ridiculing those with disabilities, different skin tones and religions. In the movies and books he was cast as the character who killed Harry’s parents and was out to kill Harry. This is a stretch for me. Trump may be many things – egomaniac, narcissist, serial liar, xenophobe, misogynist, etc, but he is not a murderer – maybe of dreams only.
The super PAC note was authored by Warren Tompkins and Jon Lerner and said:
“In Harry Potter lore, Voldemort, the Dark Lord, had a secret to his strength. His secret was his horcruxes,” they wrote. “As each horcrux was destroyed, Voldemort became increasingly vulnerable, not increasingly strong. When all of the horcruxes were gone, Voldemort lost his one-on-one battle with Harry Potter.”
It went on to ask for donations and closed with this Harry Potter reference, yet again:
“The data consistently and overwhelmingly shows Trump with the highest unfavorables among the remaining candidates, and that he is the last choice of more voters than any other Republican by far,” they write. “Like Voldemort’s horcruxes, the large candidate field shields Trump from harm. At each step of the primary process, Trump is losing his shields, and that is making him more vulnerable.”
I guess they think that Trump winning first place in South Carolina by a large margin means he will lose? Are they watching the same news channels we are? They actually went on to assert in this memo that Trump’s decisive wins actually make him “weaker.” No idea how they explain that since their Harry Potter-esque guy isn’t even coming in second — but trailing behind Cruz, the biggest liar and most hated candidate of this entire campaign. In fact, Cruz may be the most hated man to ever run for President. Ever.
Comparing Rubio to Harry Potter is a very dangerous move, in my opinion. It puts a lot of focus on his youth and inexperience. Adding that to his terrible attendance and voting record, he looks unable to actually show up and do the job. This just gives Trump more fodder to poke at him with in the coming days and weeks.
Also, the fact that Rubio can’t manage to get past Ted Cruz, who hasn’t even been determined legally eligible to hold the position of President yet, and can’t seem to stop lying his face off at every turn, bodes poorly for Marco Roboto to have a fighting chance of digging his way into even second place, let alone first.
J.K Rowling posted this tweet after Trump proposed a ban on Muslims in December 2015:
How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad. https://t.co/hFO0XmOpPH

I wonder what J.K Rowling thinks about Rubio being compared to her beloved Harry.
