Since Donald Trump started running for president, his wall-building, ethnic cleansing, anti-democratic ideas have garnered him a lot of comparisons to Adolf Hitler. And Trump does not like being compared to history’s most evil man. If you’ve been catching all the hate spilling from Trump’s mouth, but missed the comparisons to Hitler, then allow us to remind you with these 10 times someone influential in the media did so…
Here’s what famed comedian Louis C.K. wrote in an email addressing his fans: “It was funny for a little while, but the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean we are being Germany in the ‘30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.”
During his show: “Real Time with Bill Maher”, Bill gave the audience something to think about when he pointed out that in an 1990 issue of Vanity Fair, Trump was found to have a volume of Hitler’s speeches on his bedside table.
Former Fox host said this about Trump on ABC’s This Week: “You know, we all look at Adolf Hitler in 1940. He was a funny kind of character who said the things that people were thinking. Where Donald trump takes it I have absolutely no idea.”
Ladies of “The View”
Michelle Collins (who is Jewish), said on the show “I look at this and it frightens me. I know that he isn’t targeting me right now, but we don’t know.” Then fellow host Joy Behar chimed in with, “His real name is Drumpf, like mein Drumpf”
Anne Frank’s Stepsister
The stepsister of Holocaust survivor Anne Frank told Newsweek last month, “If Donald Trump become[s] the next president of the US it would be a complete disaster. I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism.”
The former chief of ADL (Anti-Defamation League said to the media, “As a Jew who survived the Holocaust, to see an audience of thousands of people raising their hands in what looks like the ‘Heil Hitler’ salute is about as offensive, obnoxious and disgusting as anything I thought I would ever witness in the United States of America. We’ve seen this sort of thing at rallies of neo-Nazis.”
Former Mexico president Vicente Fox made this statement about Trump in June, “Today, he’s going to take [the US] back to the old days of conflict, war and everything. I mean, he reminds me of Hitler. That’s the way he started speaking,”
Christine Todd Whitman
Former New Jersey governor and republican leader Christine Todd Whitman told CNN in an interview, “If you go and look at your history and you read your history in the lead-up to the Second World War this is the kind of rhetoric that allowed Hitler to move forward. Because you have people who were scared the economy was bad, they want someone to blame.”
Saturday Night Live Cast
In one of their popular fake ad skits, the cast of Saturday Night Live portrayed Trump supporters as white supremacists, KKK members, and even neo-Nazis. At one point in the ad, cast member Taran Killam raises his arm, exposing a red swastika armband.
After all the hate rhetoric and xenophobic comments, the vulgar loud-mouthed Yam known to us all as Donald Trump reminds us exactly of Hitler. There, we said it too!
