Add Billie Joe Armstrong to the growing number of celebs who’ve compared Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to maniacal dictator Adolf Hitler.
In an interview with Kerrang! (via NME.com), the Green Day front man points to the similarities between the former “Celebrity Apprentice” boss and the infamous leader of the Third Reich.
“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!”
And while the comparison may sound like he’s exaggerating, Armstrong is sad to say that isn’t the case. “I don’t even know how else to explain it. I wish I were over-exaggerating. And sometimes maybe I do over-exaggerate with Bush. But with Trump, I just can’t wait ’til he’s gone.”
