Ever since Donald Trump started gathering steam in the race to be the Republican candidate for the U.S. Presidency, a lot of people have pointed out that a lot of his rhetoric sounds eerily similar to the most evil man in history.
Indeed, replace the word ‘Muslim’ with the word ‘Jew’ in just about any Trump speech and it becomes horrifyingly similar to one of Adolf Hitler’s rants scapegoating an ethno-religious group.
Terrifyingly, some Trump supporters have even been photographed giving Nazi salutes:

However, it turns out that at least one person might not be best pleased with the Trump-Hitler comparisons.
Eager to clear the air, Conan O’Brien invited a special guest on his show this week:
It doesn’t get much worse than ‘Trump is Hitler’. So I asked if he’d come out tonight to address these comparisons, and shockingly he’s in town, he agreed. Ladies and gentlemen, here to defend himself is… Adolf Hitler.
Enter Hitler – who looks suspiciously like comedian Sarah Silverman – to explain his side of the story.
Silverman’s Hitler explained:
Don’t get me wrong, Conan, I agree with a lot he says. A lot! Ninety per cent of what he says, I’m like, ‘this guy gets it’! But it’s just, I don’t like the way he says it. It’s crass. All these comparisons to Trump, it’s like, it bums me out. You know, sometimes I watch him and I’m like, ‘Is that how people see me?!’Advertisement
Yeah, Sarah Silverman is a genius.
