Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has been likened to many unfavorable figures including Italy’s former fascist leader, Benito Mussolini, and Uganda’s current ruthless dictator Yoweri Museveni. But the most common comparison has been to notorious Nazi Germany tyrant, Adolf Hitler.
Trump’s manipulative campaign tactics which prey upon white America’s greatest fears coupled with his racist, misogynist and separatist attitude are reminiscent of the traits Hitler embodied.
During an episode of “Conan,” Hitler was resurrected by comedian Sarah Silverman to provide insight on how he would feel about the unflattering comparisons if he were alive today.
According to Silverman’s portrayal of the divisive oppressor, he would not be too fond of Trump.
"What kind of person talks about his penis size on national television?" she says. "I famously have a micropenis. That's what makes a tyrant."
She went on to explain how saddened “Hitler” is to learn the public’s negative opinion of him through their loathing of Trump.
"Sometimes I watch him and I'm like, 'Is that how people see me?'" she said. "He's starting to make me rethink some of the things I've done."
While the exchange between Conan and Silverman lasted only a couple of minutes, it packed a serious punch.
Hitler is known as one of history’s most terrible and hateful human beings to ever walk the earth so to jokingly imply that Trump is even worse really holds a mirror up to the Americans who are supporting his campaign and turning a blind eye to how dangerous he is.
