Leave It To Louis C.K. To Come Up With The Perfect Election Analogy

Comic Louis C.K. found the perfect way to explain why Donald Trump would be an utter disaster and why we're much safer with Hillary Clinton.

Comedian Louis C.K. has shared his thoughts about the 2016 election on a few different occasions, but his assessment of where things currently stand was spot on.

While C.K. previously declared that he wished “the next president was a conservative only because we had Obama for eight years and we need balance,” Trump is clearly not the conservative he was looking for. In March, C.K. called Trump “Hitler… we are being Germany in the 30s.”

In a recent interview with New York magazine, C.K. compared the job of the president to flying a plane, evaluating how each candidate would fare.

Here’s his full quote:

“It's like if you were on a plane and you wanted to choose a pilot. You have one person, Hillary, who says: ‘Here's my license. Here's all the thousands of flights that I've flown. Here's planes I've flown in really difficult situations. I've had some good flights and some bad flights, but I've been flying for a very long time, and I know exactly how this plane works.’

Then you've got Bernie, who says, ‘Everyone should get a ride right to their house with this plane.’ ‘Well, how are you going to do that?’ ‘I just think we should. It's only fair that everyone gets to use the plane equally.’ And then Trump says, ‘I'm going to fly so well. You're not going to believe how good I'm going to fly this plane, and by the way, Hillary never flew a plane in her life.’ ‘She did, and we have pictures.’ ‘No, she never did it.’ It's insane.”

While C.K.’s perspective of Clinton and Sanders is more simplistic than the legitimate ideological divide that exists between them, the hilarious boasting and idiocy of Trump is acutely accurate.

The next time anyone questions why we should be voting against Trump, just parrot C.K.’s wise words.
