As you well know, the Democratic presidential debate took place on Tuesday. Yet, while all eyes were on the candidates, almost nobody noticed a rather familiar-looking fellow slip in to watch Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton duel it out at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas.
Indeed, if you thought that J.K. Rowling's magical Harry Potter world was all fiction, think again because our favorite silver-bearded wizard, Albus Dumbledore, just graced us with his presence.
As the candidates debated on important issues such as the US economy, foreign policy, and social welfare, Albus sent Twitter into a frenzy, prompting complete and utter fascination from people all over the world who couldn't believe that their favorite wizard was actually alive and well! The last we saw of him, of course, was when he was falling to his death -- remind yourselves of the heart-breaking moment here:
As you can see, it's totally understandable why everyone was so shocked to see the great wizard still around. Take a look at some of the things people had to say:
Ultimately many agreed that if this wasn't proof that Dumbledore didn't actually fall from that Hogwarts tower and tragically die at the hands of Snape, then they didn't know what was. He's clearly still alive and kickin' and keeping on top of his political game!
While there are still some people waiting on the bearded man to come forward to identify himself, there's really no need. Because the mystery has already been solved -- it's obviously Dumbledore!
And before you come crashing down on this parade, bear in mind that Dumbledore hasn't been the only wizard spotted perusing the Muggle world over the last few months. Only last summer did we report Severus Snape trying to pull the wool over our eyes as an American Airlines employee:
What Snape was doing at the check-in desk is anyone's guess, but one thing is clear, these wizards are certainly up to something. Maybe we should tweet J.K. directly and ask her what's up!?
