Donald Trump Gets Slammed By Comedian Louis C.K: ‘The Guy Is Hitler’

Donald Trump, lead contender for the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nomination, got slammed by comedian Louis C.K who compared the real estate mogul to Adolf Hitler, Us Weekly reports.

“Please stop it with voting for Trump,” C.K. wrote in a promotional email for his new web-series Horace and Pete.“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.”

C.K went on to say that this doesn’t mean that he supports either Democratic contender, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. In fact, the comedian said that he would prefer to see a more conservative politician in the White House after Barack Obama’s two presidential terms.

“When I was growing up and when I was a younger man, liberals and conservatives were friends with differences,” he wrote. “They weren’t enemies. And it always made sense that everyone gets a president they like for a while and then hates the president for a while. But it only works if the conservatives put up a good candidate. A good smart conservative to face the liberal candidate so they can have a good argument and the country can decide which way to go this time.”

But Trump is not that kind of candidate, Louis C.K said in his email.

“Trump is not that. He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous.”

Louis also had a couple of choice words for people who intend to vote for Donald Trump.

“If you do vote for Trump, at least look at him very carefully first,” C.K. advised in his email. “You owe that to the rest of us. Know and understand who he is. Spend one hour on Google and just read it all. I don’t mean listen to me or listen to liberals who put him down. Listen to your own people.”

Backlash against Trump isn’t just coming from celebrities, government officials overseas are getting in on the action, too. Russia Today reports that German Vice Chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel, has called Donald Trump a “threat to peace” and “economic development.” He also lumped Donald Trump in with extreme right wing politicians in Europe.

“Whether Donald Trump, Marine le Pen or Geert Wilders — all these right-wing populists are not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also to economic development,” Gabriel said in an interview with German publication, Welt am Sonntag.

Donald Trump isn’t even that welcome in the Republican party. As the Independent reports, former Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, recently slammed Donald Trump in a blistering speech.

During the speech, Romney called on Republicans to “make the right choice” and stop Trump.

“Here’s what I know. Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” Mr Romney said. “His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.”

Romney then eviscerated Trump’s record as a businessman, something that the real estate mogul has been using as his main selling point during his campaign.

“A business genius he is not,” Romney said and then listed Trump failed business ventures. “He is not of the temperament” to be president.

Many high ranking Republicans openly praised Mitt Romney for calling out Donald Trump.

Romney did not announce any intention of running for president during the speech.
