Throughout Donald Trump‘s campaign, numerous people and outlets have compared him to Adolf Hitler. Greenday’s Billie Joe Armstrong is the latest celebrity to get on board with the comparison.
In an interview with Kerrang! Magazine, he said “The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are. I actually feel bad for them, because they’re poor, working-class people who can’t get a leg up. They’re pissed off and he’s preyed on their anger.”
He continued, “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*cking Hitler, man! 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.”
This isn’t the first time Armstrong has been outspoken about his politics. His band released an album called American Idiot which was about George W. Bush‘s presidency.
