Louis CK has launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump, comparing the Republican front-runner for president to Adolf Hitler.
The comedian made this remark during an email to his fans to promote the latest episode for his web-series, Horace And Pete.
After announcing that episode 6 of Horace And Pete was now available to stream and download from his website, Louis CK, in his own hilarious and irreverent style, asked his subscribers to not vote for Donald Trump.

Louis CK has developed a devoted fan base thanks to his FX series Louie. He is regularly labeled as one of the greatest comedians currently on the circuit, and his note to fans was poignant.
“Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the s**t coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.”
Louis CK then went on to insist that he wasn’t advocating a vote for Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, even though he admitted that he is a fan of both of them.
In fact, Louis CK insisted that the next President Of The United States Of America should be conservative. CK believes that having had Barack Obama in power now for eight years the country needs balance, and since around 40 percent of the country is conservative and 40 percent is liberal the “government should reflect the people.”
However, Louis CK went on to admit that that only works if the conservatives are able to find and put a candidate forward that is smart and who will embark on an argument and discussion with a liberal candidate in a coherent and educated manner.
Louis CK was quite adamant that Donald Trump wasn’t that man.
“Trump is not that. He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous.”
Louis CK then went on to expand his argument by explaining how Donald Trump has already promised to decimate the first amendment during his campaign, as he’s promised to sue anyone who writes a negative piece about him.
Rather than just instinctively voting for Donald Trump, Louis CK has insisted that his supporters need to think long and hard about what he could do to the future of the country.
“A vote for Trump is so clearly a gut-vote, and again I get it. But add a little brain to it and look the guy up. Because if you vote for him because of how you feel right now, the minute he’s president, you’re going to regret it. You’re going to regret it even more when he gives the job to his son. Because American democracy is broken enough that a guy like that could really f*** things up. That’s how Hitler got there. He was voted into power by a fatigued nation and when he got inside, he did all his Hitler things and no one could stop him.”

Continuing his attack on Donald Trump, Louis CK noted that Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders should face the best person that the Republican candidate available, and, in his opinion, “Trump is not your best. He’s the worst of all of us. He’s a symptom to a problem that is very real. But don’t vote for your own cancer. You’re better than that.”
Louis CK then finished his diatribe with the following.
“Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he’ll never stop trying. He’s sick. Which makes him really really interesting. And he pulls you towards him which somehow feels good or fascinatingly bad. He’s not a monster. He’s a sad man. But all this makes him horribly dangerous if he becomes president.”
