Jimmy Kimmel Convinces People Neville Longbottom Is In Congress

"Representative Neville Longbottom, please bring the jobs back to the U.S."

Oh, Muggles. 

Congress' approval rating is probably even lower than the Ministry of Magic's when Cornelius Fudge was running the show, so Jimmy Kimmel set out to find out exactly what we all think of our representatives. And by that, we mean he just wanted to see if anyone could name one person in Congress. Yeah, just one.

You can probably guess where this is going. Not only could people not name their representatives, but Kimmel's crew also convinced them fictional characters were in office, including Ash Ketchum and Neville Longbottom

Perhaps it was just wishful thinking, though. There's actually a lot our representatives could learn from Longbottom. For instance, it takes bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. Also, Draco Malfoy is a jerk face.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
