This was the week it became utterly acceptable to compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. After comedian Louis CK drew the parallel last weekend, it even ended up on the front page of the New York Daily News:
“It doesn’t get much worse than ‘Trump Is Hitler,’” Conan O’Brien remarked Thursday night. So he felt it was only right to let Adolf Hitler come on his show to defend himself in the face of such shocking allegations.
Out walked Sarah Silverman in full Nazi attire to a wild ovation from the audience. “That’s more applause than I expected,” she deadpanned. Silverman’s Hitler wanted to “clear the air” over what he viewed as “unfavorable” comparisons to Trump.
“Don’t get me wrong, Conan, I agree with a lot of what he says. A lot. Like 90 percent of what he says, I’m like this guy gets it,” Hitler admitted. “But it’s just, I don’t like the way he says it. It’s crass, you know?”
“What kind of person talks about his penis size on national television?” Hitler asked. As someone who “famously has a micropenis,” he added, “that’s what makes a tyrant.”
“All these comparisons to Trump, it’s like, it bums me out, you know what I mean?” Hitler continued.
“Sometimes I watch him and I’m like, ‘Is that how people see me?’ And I have to be honest, Trump, he’s starting to make me rethink some of the things I’ve done.” After a pause, Hitler added, “Ah, who am I kidding? I got to be me!”
