Was Donald Trump's Hollywood star actually a horcrux? And what else could be?


Presidential candidate Donald Trump has been called some unsavoury things in his time - but people going the whole hog(warts) and likening him to Harry Potter's nasally-challenged nemesis Lord Voldemort surely takes the biscuit.

But now the comparison to the character from JK Rowling's Wizarding World has gone one step further after Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was smashed with a sledgehammer - which some people believe is just the start of something bigger.

In the Harry Potter books a horcrux is "a receptacle prepared by dark magic in which a Dark wizard has intentionally hidden a fragment of his soul for the purpose of attaining immortality" - in essence it's a dark evil item created by nasty people to protect them from dying.

Usually the things chosen to be horcruxes by such dark people are things close to them, so obviously people have been speculating where else Trump may be hiding his soul - here's some of the places they came up with:

His "make America great again" hat

His hair

A tad obvious perhaps, but it's not a bad spot for him to keep an eye on it.

Governor Chris Christie

The governor of New Jersey has been a staunch supporter of Trump. An article from the New Yorker called Christie Trump's "manservant", while it is alleged he refers to the presidential candidate as "Mr Trump" - you can't help but get a Wormtail vibe from that, so who's to say he couldn't be a horcrux?

A portrait of himself

The fact Trump has a portrait of himself suggests he is probably the type of person who would make such a horcrux.

Tiffany Trump

Perhaps his dauhgter Tiffany actually holds the power to bring Trump down?

Now that's how to throw people off the scent.

Hillary Clinton

Of course. As his opponent in the US election no one would suspect Trump of making Clinton a horcrux - the perfect crime.

Mind blown. Anyone got any basilisk fangs handy?
