Moronic Monday: Cornelius Fudge (Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix)

Mondays, the worst day of the week. Despite the fact that it's the start of your school/work week, there is always something extra that just pushes it to the next level. That someone that just permanently keeps Monday at the top of most dreaded days of the week. That's what this meme is about. The one character that drives you mad with their stupidity. Their idiocy is the type that you can spot their impending train wreck from miles away, the type that makes you want to slam their heads into a desk repeatedly. Moronic Mondays are not for your lovable idiots, no, it's for the ones that you think they deserve every bad thing they get it.

Where to begin with ol' Cornelius Fudge's faults. He's an idiot, power-hungry, bumbling, fool. That pretty much wraps him up as a character. He makes stupid decisions and was constantly asking Dumbledore for advice, but then when things start becoming dangerous in the Wizarding World he turns on Dumbledore and Harry with a huge smear campaign. Then the stupidest thing was instating Umbridge as a teacher and then Headmaster of Hogwarts. And for what reason? Because he didn't want it to be true that Voldemort was back so he tried to wish it all away by trying to ruin Dumbledore and Harry's creditability. Although Dumbledore and Harry would have been a huge assets to helping Fudge figure out how to face Voldemort and everything would have gone a lot smoother, he decides to turn against them because he sees Dumbledore as a threat to his position as Minister. Which makes it perfectly logical to turn against him, when he needs Dumbledore's help and advice the most, right? Wrong.
