Donald Trump has built his campaign upon a base of angry old white guys, but his voters aren’t all longing for the good old days when women stayed in the kitchen and black people knew their place. He has support among millennials too. So who are these younger Trump supporters? Apparently, this guy.

Keith Olbermann was quick to point out how much this young Republican voter looks like Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter series. Other Twitter users noticed the uncanny resemblance as well.

People also started to list other infamous characters who could be this millennial Trump supporter’s doppelganger. Such as Joffrey Baratheon from Game Of Thrones and Rolfe from The Sound Of Music.

So just who is this young Trump backing blonde? He is Tom Crean, a member of the George Washington College Republicans, and he thinks Trump is really a “compassionate and intelligent man” who just gets a “bad rap” as a result of people taking his racist and misogynistic remarks “out of context.” Because of course, he does.
I think Trump really does get a bad rap. I personally voted for Trump as my first ever vote. And I think he does get a bad rap because he is a movement of the people. Like, the establishment has been against him from the beginning, and I think that’s kind of a uniquely American campaign in a way. Because we, as a country, against the odds beat Great Britain.
Trump, I do believe, is a compassionate and intelligent man, and a lot of it is taken out of context and manipulated by his political enemies, which are many.
At this point, though, could we really expect millennial Trump supporters to look any different? I mean, no African American or latino voter in their right mind could support this racist narcissist. He has insulted women, Mexicans, blacks, and Muslims. Hell, the list just keeps going. If you aren’t a rich, white male, the Trump campaign has nothing good to say about you.
