Hollywood’s ‘Trump Is Hitler’ Argument Even More Pathetic Now
The current crisis reveals how badly far-left celebrities embarrassed themselves
The unhinged Left compared President George W. Bush to Hitler after the dawn of the Iraq War.
Hollywood trotted out similar talking points months before Donald J. Trump could utter the presidential oath.
Far-left comic Sarah Silverman unofficially played the “Hitler Card” first. Silverman, who ignores the anti-semitism swirling around Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, dressed as Der Fuhrer during a March 2016 appearance on “Conan.”
“Don’t get me wrong, Conan. I agree with a lot he says — a lot. Like 90 percent of what he says, I’m like, ‘this guy gets it … But I don’t like the way he says it. It’s crass.”
Conan O’Brien’s production team, as well as TBS, had no problem airing such a routine. It’s easy to understand why. O’Brien later dubbed Trump voters Nazis, too.
Since then, stars such as Judd Apatow, Kumail Nanjiani, Rob Reiner and director Joss Whedon have directly compared President Trump to either Nazis or Hitler.
“Saturday Night Live” built an entire sketch around the notion that Trump’s fans are Nazis and/or KKK members.
Jane Fonda joined the wave during a 2018 presentation.
“If you’ve read anything about the rise of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler, you will see the parallels,” Fonda said. “Attacking the media is the first step in the move towards fascism. The cornerstone to democracy is an independent, democratic media.”
Whedon also predicted Trump would round up and/or kill gay Americans. To be fair, the president did nominate the first openly gay cabinet member and has said he’d vote for a gay presidential candidate. Trump also promoted legalizing gay relationships across the globe.
On the anti Semitic front, the president reversed decades of U.S. policy by recognizing Jerusalem existing in Israel. He also oversaw the relocation of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Still, as absurd as these comments were up until recently, they’ve taken on a new level of foolishness of late.
President Trump’s reaction to the current pandemic hasn’t been perfect. Let’s put aside rational criticisms of his performance to keep the focus where it belongs for the moment.
Trump as Hitler.
Has Trump manhandled the media in any way other than criticizing it for comical, biased overreach? Are reporters fearful of being arrested for their coverage? Has Trump put any unprecedented restrictions on the flow of information?
No, no and no.
Instead, he holds daily press conferences on the current pandemic, the most recent one lasting more than two hours. Meanwhile, media outlets are either ignoring these pressers or pretending they’re a substitute for the recent Trump rallies.
Has he forced private businesses to do the government’s bidding? Mostly, no. He did tap the Defense Production Act to spur GM, already switching gears to crank out as many ventilators as possible, to increase its productivity.
For the most part, Trump has repeatedly turned to, and empowered, states to help protect their citizens.
Townhall.com best captured the president’s approach to the crisis:
Bowing to Federalism, President Trump has asked each governor to lead in their particular state’s response to Covid-19. Monday night Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent a powerful message to New York to remain home and not visit his state. No federal intervention was needed. This also follows a time proven maxim of best practice, that each problem should be resolved at the lowest level possible. In other words, every problem should be solved, if possible, by the people closest to the problem.
- Sen. Bernie Sanders wants to weaponize the crisis to deploy a socialized health care overhaul. And the host of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” gleefully cheered him on.
- New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is threatening to “permanently” close synagogues and churches in the Big Apple that don’t abide by the current lockdown rules.
- Va. Governor Ralph Northam shut down his state through June 10.
- Democrats attempted to stuff a critical stimulus bill with a bevy of their pet causes – diversity measures and more items that have nothing to do with the current crisis.
The entire [Insert Republican Leader] is Hitler canard isn’t new. It even included President Ronald Reagan, who apparently was Hitler-like according to Democratic Rep. William Clay of Missouri.
Still, the current Hollywood version is just as despicable, but far more widespread and lacking any appropriate outrage from mainstream media.
President Trump’s behavior during the current crisis reminds us, again, how little moral weight far-left celebrities hold.
I eagerly await Northram running to the feds for bailout money after the entire state of Virginia files for unemployment by Memorial Day.
To be fair, I don’t think they ever compared Romney to Hitler. They did say he wanted to put black people in chains, though, so I guess they were comparing him Jefferson Davis instead.
OTOH, a columnist in Newsweek did manage to compare his wife to both Hitler AND Stalin. Does that count?
I would say yes.
I’m 56 and I remember EVERY Republican president from Reagan thru Trump being compared to Hitler, , or being stupid, or senile or all of the above. And the same people who vilified the right leaning presidents, deified, the left leaning ones.
Democrats comparing Republicans to Nazis and fascists goes back to 1936, when Franklin Roosevelt accused Alf Landon of fascistic policies. The only Republican not tarred with that brush was Dwight Eisenhower. I guess even the Democrats realized that was a bit of a stretch.
sarah silverman is a c*** but she does have a rocking bod. Same with some of the hollywood girls looking to stay relevant as the age
I have a hard time understanding how it is that we are on our 3rd or 4th Hitler and we still can’t get those death camps operating. What kind of craptastic incompetent Hitlers are we getting? America deserves the best!
Love Toto here who always brings heat against the degenerates of contemporary Hollywood.
Hitler was a socialist.
You know, the ideological brother to all those Hollywood twerps.
Stalin accused Trotsky of being a fascist.
Then had an assassin bury an ice pick in his head.
SOP for the reactionary left.
Who are these people mentioned in the article?
What stands out in the Trump pressers is how much he empowers, defers to and acknowledges others.
Add up all the IQ’s of those “celebrities” and you won’t hit triple digits. I’ll bet there isn’t a sniff of a college degree either. STFU.
And by the way, to all the Jewish celeb’s in the article, it was the LEFT who tried to eradicate you from the face of the earth, including the National Socialist Party in Germany, and Stalin in the Soviet Union. You might want to figure out who your friends are. History repeating itself wouldn’t be good for your world view.
Yep, Hitler was a man of the “left.” Keep saying it enough times, and people will begin to believe it. Kind of like a “big lie,” right?
Hitler was a big fan of Margaret Sanger you dic*sucking moron..
Of course, Trump was

Leftists are vermin. They’ve been this way my entire adult life. The real question is why theyre tolerated.
You guys need to get someone in there with a knowledge of history.
Almost EVERY prominent Republican, president or not, has been called a fascist or Hitler. It started as soon as it POSSIBLY could, in the election of 1948. The headline from the NYT reads:
–PRESIDENT LIKENS DEWEY TO HITLER AS FASCISTS’ TOOL; Says When Bigots, Profiteers Get Control of Country They Select ‘Front Man’ to Rule DICTATORSHIP STRESSED Truman Tells Chicago Audience a Republican Victory Will Threaten U.S. Liberty TRUMAN SAYS GOP PERILS U.S. LIBERTY
By Anthony Leviero–
The exceptions to this was Ike because even they couldn’t expect anyone to believe it. And Ford who wasn’t worth the energy. They fell back on their OTHER talking point about Republicans: he was a dunce. And Bush the Elder because such tactics weren’t needed. Also a dunce. Bush the Younger was both a dunce AND a fascist.
The news media tying in Goldwater to Nazis is INFAMOUS. How that one escaped y’all escapes me. Nixon, Gingrich and Palin all called Nazis. Even milquetoast MITT ROMNEY.
You need to do a better job of this.
An actor’s gift is the ability to lie convincingly, not intellectual depth, give their “actions and words” the appropriate weight, next to zero.
I wanna hear stoopid, stunted, privileged multi-millionaire Hollywood actors sing “Imagine” again.
I wanna hear Taylor Swift tell us more about how she’s so oppressed.
Somebody tell Kim Jong Un it’s ok if he want’s to fire off a nuke at Los Angeles. We won’t care.
Just don’t hit Dwayne Johnson. He’ll take it personal and there will be Hell to pay.
The sad irony is that China is the evil oppressive regime that has caused the world to shut down….and the far-left cannot process that. No, keep comparing those MAGA hats to swastikas if it makes you feel better. Who needs facts when you’ve got an international crisis on your hands?
Libs are fascist terrorists in word, deed, and belief. They demonstrate it every single day. Treat them accordingly.
These people are celebrities. They are not political analysts. They are not intelligence gatherers. They know nothing other than how to act. Their statements carry no more weight than the average person off the street. If you believe what they say, you are no brighter than they are.
Given that Hollywood has gotten into bed with Chi-Coms, can we now start referring to all of these far left actors and directors as being little Maos or Xis? As is true with the NBA and academia, many areas of our culture have prostituted themselves to Chinese Communist Party.
Leftists tend to worship their leaders, from Lenin, to Mao, to Fidel, to O’bama. San Fran Nan, and on and on. They can’t really understand that those on the right generally don’t, not to that extent, which confuses them. We’re voting for people, with all their flaws, while they’re voting for gods, and will ignore their flaws.
Harry Truman called Thomas Dewey, the man on the wedding cake, Hitler. Unbelievable.
Used to love Silverman. She’s hot and funny. But she’s got TDS so badly (like most of Hollywood/Entertainment) that I can’t even stand her. Do these clowns realize that we stop supporting their work when they start trashing America, our POTUS, and our values? (Not that many actually act anymore, anyhow.) People like DeNiro and Jim Carrey (and the list really goes on and on) used to be heroes to me. I’d go see all of their films. Now I wouldn’t even SNEAK in for free.
I’m old enough to remember Nixon. The same happened to him. It’s a reflex action for Dems. The right does it too. It’s just laziness.
There’s an old rule of posting … once someone compares some one to Hitler, the thread is over.
Nothing said after that is meaningful.
tired old horsesxht form hoolyweed. they are broke and going under. nobody cares what say or do. Preterite.
they have no idea what is about to happen to them…..none……
