"Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he'll never stop trying"
American comedian Louis CK has written an epic email to fans ripping Donald Trump.
C.K. pleads with his fans to see the absurdity of Trump’s campaign and makes a stark comparison between the Republican Presidential Candidate and one Adolf Hitler.
"Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler," C.K. wrote to fans on his e-mail list.
"And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all."
C.K. elaborates further on the Trump/Hitler comparison later on in the missive:
"A vote for Trump is so clearly a gut-vote, and again I get it. But add a little brain to it and look the guy up. Because if you vote for him because of how you feel right now, the minute he's president, you're going to regret it," he wrote. "You're going to regret it even more when he gives the job to his son. Because American democracy is broken enough that a guy like that could really fuck things up. That's how Hitler got there. He was voted into power by a fatigued nation and when he got inside, he did all his Hitler things and no one could stop him.”
C.K. explains that Trump’s presidency would have dire consequences for America.
"Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he'll never stop trying," C.K. added. "He's sick. Which makes him really really interesting. And he pulls you towards him which somehow feels good or fascinatingly bad. He's not a monster. He's a sad man. But all this makes him horribly dangerous if he becomes president."
The comedian doesn’t throw his weight behind any particular Presidential Candidate but he does hope that the next President is a conservative, explaining that what American society needs is fair representation and balance.
"And I'm not advocating for Hillary or Bernie. I like them both but frankly I wish the next president was a conservative only because we had Obama for eight years and we need balance. And not because I particularly enjoy the conservative agenda. I just think the government should reflect the people. And we are about 40 percent conservative and 40 percent liberal.”
