David Duke Thinks Comparing Donald Trump to Hitler Is Great — for Adolf

White supremacist leader David Duke believes that the comparisons being made between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler could actually be great — for the Fuhrer.

Politico reported that Duke said on his radio show, “They might be rehabilitating that fellow with the mustache back there in Germany.”

Duke’s diatribe was inspired by a commercial he saw that attacked Trump.

He continued by saying, “What Donald Trump said about preserving America and making America great again to Hitler in Germany preserving Germany and making Germany great again and free again and not beholden to these Communists on one side, politically who were trying to destroy their land and their freedom, and the Jewish capitalists on the other, who were ripping off the nation through the banking system.”

Duke seems to believe that the constant comparison will make Trump supporters realize that Hitler wasn’t so bad.

In February, CNN asked Trump whether he would denounce Duke and the Ku Klux Klan. Trump ducked the question, sparking outrage among the Republican Party. He later blamed it on a faulty earpiece and disavowed the group. Despite this, Duke has remained quite the Trump cheerleader, and apparently a newfound fan of that fellow with the mustache.
