The White House Wants Trump Disqualified for Muslim Banning Comments

J.K. Rowling: He's worse than Voldemort

Megan Vick

Donald Trump's presidential campaign has been a collection of outlandish and racist comments since he announced he was running, with the tag line that Mexican immigrants were mostly drug dealers and racists.

Now Trump has turned on Muslims in light of the shootings in Paris and San Bernardino, saying that the United States should put a ban on all Muslims entering the country until representatives "figure out what's going on" at a campaign rally in South Carolina on Monday night.

Huffington Post reverses Donald Trump coverage in light of anti-Muslim plan

Now even the White House is stepping in to say that Trump has gone too far. During a Tuesday press conference, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, "What he said is disqualifying. And any Republican who's too fearful of the Republican base to admit it has no business serving as president either. It is clear that what he's said is disqualifying and for the other Republican candidates who have pledged to support him, it's disqualifying for them to continue to hold that position. To support somebody for the presidency who articulates these views, I think is a pretty clear indication that you don't have the right judgment to serve as President of the United States."

On the pop culture side of things, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has also said that it's time for Trump to go by using one of the most powerful insults in the wizarding world - he's worse than her story's ultimate villain, Voldemort.

"How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad," the author tweeted with a link to a BBC article also comparing Trump to the Dark Lord.
