MSNBC host Donny Deutsch came completely unglued on Wednesday, claiming that there’s “no difference” between President Donald Trump and Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Not stopping there, Deutsch went on to launch an anti-semitic attack on Jewish Trump supporters.
“What is the difference between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump? he asked while appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”. “I’m not saying there’s a holocaust, but when you look at the tactics … this is where we are right now.”
Deutsch, who is of Jewish heritage himself, went on to shame Jewish people who support Trump.
“How dare you!” he shouted. “How dare you, with what our people have gone through in history, and you see a man who is a dictator. And once you give a man absolute power, he is possible of anything.”
“If you are a Jew in this country and you are supporting Donald Trump, you are not looking back at our history,” Deutsch continued. “And you are blind and you are walking like a lemming off a cliff. It is time to wake up. I’m sorry.”
“There is no difference from what Donald Trump is preaching, from what Adolf Hitler preached in the early ’30s. Let’s just say it once and for all,” the advertising expert declared.
During this segment, Deutsch was talking about a recent rally that Trump held in Pittsburgh, saying that it “looked like a rally from the early [1930s].”
“Look at that crowd,” he said. “There’s not one person of color anywhere. Like, usually behind him he puts one kind of token in there, a token person.”
Deutsch even went so far as to make comparisons between America and Nazi Germany.
“Basically, you had a destruction of the belief in the free press,” he said. “You had a blurring between the executive branch and the Justice Department. You have creating an other, whether it’s Muslims, whether it’s Mexicans, whether it’s congressmen who weren’t born in this country. And then you have the destruction of free elections. And we’re here.”
