The Hermione-Draco Election

Does anyone else see the current U.S. Presidential election as the matchup between Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy?

In this corner, Hermione/Hillary Clinton: female, smart, studious, dedicated, good-intentioned. Tends to come off as wonkish, or snobbish to those that dislike her.

And on the Republican/Slytherin side, Dracoy/Donald Trump, the rich, spoiled, entitled scion, with bad hair, bad character, obnoxious and selfish.

How has this not been a meme?

Edit: Apparently it's already a thing, but of course it would be.

As it turned out, over 65 million voters agreed with me, and Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes. Unfortunately, because of a system in which some people's votes are worth more than others, Donald Trump is now President of the United States, a man spectacularly unsuited to be the President of anything, let alone of the most powerful and admired democracy in the world. Auwe!
