“The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are,” Armstrong declares in the interview. “I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up. They’re p***ed off and he’s preyed on their anger.”

He added: “He just said, ‘You have no options and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s f***ing Hitler, man!”
