Of course, a centerpiece of the franchise is Hogwarts. This is the magical school where all young wizards learn their magical ways. Though the story is over, fans speculate what has happened here since the finale, and what it would be like if it existed in the real world.
The school is sorted into four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Students are placed there by the magical Sorting Hat. The hat places the students in the appropriate house according to their traits. Or, according to one fan theory, their values.
Gryffindor values courage and bravery. Hufflepuff values hard work and patience. Ravenclaw values intelligence and learning. That leaves Slytherin, and their values are definitely something that needs to be discussed.
House Slytherin is said to value cunning, but they've churned out some less than ideal alumni. One of their most famous families is the Malfoys. They are extremely wealthy, fair-haired elitists that stop at nothing to get what they want. Sound familiar?
Some may think this comparison is unfair... to the Malfoys. But Donald Trump may share more in common with the dark lord Voldemort. For example, they both gain power through fear and become stronger the more you speak their name.
Rowling isn't alone in her criticism of the Trump administration. Journalist Oliver Willis recently sent out this tweet. In it, he presumes that the First Family would wind up in Hogwarts' most villainous house.
Of course, maybe this slam isn't as malicious as it seems. Perhaps Rowling isn't implying that Trump and his family aren't magical. Maybe the only reason he wouldn't get an invitation to Hogwarts is because of his administration's environmental measures, which would leave no owls or other living creatures in the future to carry the letters.
