Marco Rubio super PAC begs for cash by claiming he is Harry Potter—and Trump is Voldemort
If there’s one thing every millennial knows it’s the life and times of Harry Potter, but major donors in the GOP? According to a fundraising memo sent out Sunday evening to major donors, Marco Rubio is just like boy-wonder Harry Potter and Donald Trump is the evil villain Lord Voldemort, Politico reports.
“The results in South Carolina were tremendously good for Marco Rubio,” PAC leaders Warren Tompkins and Jon Lerner wrote. “This morning, the media speculation that Donald Trump is unstoppable, is flatly wrong. It misses a central element of this year’s Republican nominating contest.”
Trump may have scored first place in this weekend’s South Carolina Primary, but Rubio’s campaign is fighting the media battle claiming that underdog-Rubio won by scoring second place.
“In Harry Potter lore, Voldemort, the Dark Lord, had a secret to his strength. His secret was his horcruxes,” the memo continued. “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.”
The memo outlines what Trump’s horcruxes are, claiming that the limit of his power has been revealed with every primary he has won.
“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.”
The PAC intends to stay active through March and made a final pitch to donors to continue giving until “He Who Shall Not Be Named” is finally defeated.
