J.K. Rowling revealed which Hogwarts house Trump would be sorted into and it’s NOT Slytherin

Please say he’s not a Gryffindor!

Imagine if Trump attended Hogwarts. Er, we know guys… it’s hard to picture. Especially as Harry Potter is our fave fictional universe and tbh, we’d much rather have Trump miles and miles broomsticks and broomsticks away from it.

Some of you lovely lot on Twitter HAVE been imagining it, though. There’s been plenty of talk about what Hogwarts House Trump would be in.

Obvs, a lot of us think it would be Slytherin. After all, Slytherins are ambitious and cunning. They’re also snake-like and plenty of ’em have slicked blonde locks – soz Malfoy.

Also, don’t forget that Tom Riddle – a.k.a Lord Voldemort – was the friggin’ heir of Slytherin. Not to mention Dolores Umbridge, who we think was the most evil one of the whole lot.

If you ask us, the comparisons are uncanny.



We’re DEAD…

These just keep getting better and better.

Don’t worry too much though, J.K. Rowling has recently put the Trump/Slytherin-theory to bed. When journalist, Oliver Willis posted a joke about it on Twitter, J.K. revealed that the POTUS would NOT be in Slytherin.

Whaaaaaaaat? Don’t tell us he’s a Gryffindor?!

Spoiler alert: He’s not.

In fact, Trump isn’t in Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw either because J.K. replied to Oliver saying that Trump wouldn’t get accepted into Hogwarts in the first place. Touché.

Just when we couldn’t love J.K. Rowling anymore! *HEART SWELLS*
