While appearing on Sunday’s edition of “AM Joy,” actor Rob Reiner and his wife, Michele, spent the segment comparing President Trump to Hitler and called his supporters “hardcore racists.”
According to Newsbusters:
Early in the segment, Rob Reiner declared:
Let’s cut to the chase — this is about racism. This is pure and simple racism — that’s all this is. He’s hoping that the people who support him will be ginned up and running to the polls to make sure that brown people don’t come into America. That’s exactly what’s going on here.
Reid soon suggested that Trump political advisors want to motivate the Republican base “by separating brown children and parents,” leading Michele Reiner to respond, “This is based on racism, period,” adding that “they don’t want more brown people coming into this country.”
She soon likened the Trump administration to Nazi Germany as she added: “And I have to tell you, my mother was in Auschwitz. She got separated from her entire family — lost her entire family. I never thought I would live to see something like that, particularly in this country, ever again in my lifetime.”
Which family is Trump executing?
Micele Reiner later noted:
They follow the exact pattern that Hitler has — I hate to say it — with the propaganda, even down to — the Red Cross went into Auschwitz. They cleaned it up for two days — it looked fine — they went back — they said everything seems fine there.
“It’s a fascist playbook,” her husband added.
“Those people who are supporting what he’s doing here are racists, period,” he later said, adding: “And 25 percent of the country — whether it’s 20, 30 percent — are hardcore racists. They do not want to see brown people coming into America. That’s just what’s going on here.”
Michele later stated: “To quote that new book that just came out, he is evil. He is evil. And the thing is, I thought, ‘He’ll come in and he won’t really know because he’s not that smart smart, and he’ll just do a showmanship thing,’ but he’s evil.
Translation: Not only is Trump “evil,” he’s literally Hitler, and you’re a “hardcore racist” if you think the law should be obeyed.
