Earlier this morning on CNN, one of Donald Trump’s media surrogates, KABC radio host John Phillips, said he believesTrump can win the election in November, but his first challenge will be to “prove that he’s not Adolf Hitler.”
Also part of the debate was Ted Cruz supporter Steve Lonegan, who suggested that Trump and his likely Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton are “two sides of the same coin.” How so? Lonegan went on to add:
“They both support funding for Planned Parenthood. They both support universal health care funded by taxpayers.
“He supports gun control for some more popular firearms and he supports big government. I think Hillary Clinton is actually better on foreign policy than Donald Trump is.”
Trump, of course, now says he doesn’t support federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and he has also made some absolutist statements when it comes to the Second Amendment, even go so far as to say that he carries a gun with him at times.
But John Phillips said the Donald will have a big challenge when he attempts to convince voters to cast their ballots for him, commenting:
“I don’t think this is going to be an effective line of attack. This is a matchup that’s very dangerous to Hillary Clinton.
“If Donald Trump is going to win the general election, he’s going to have to prove to the public that he’s not Adolf Hitler, which is going to be easy for him to do. If Hillary Clinton is going to win the nomination, she’s going to have to prove that she’s not Hillary Clinton. That’s going to be much harder to do.”
Yeah, because voters are much more skeptical of Hillary Clinton than they are of a guy who reminds them of Hitler. WTF?! Does Phillips actually believe the crap that is pouring out of his mouth?
A general election featuring Clinton and Trump would perhaps be interesting at times, but all of the polling data available suggests that Clinton would win in a landslide. But Trump can always content himself with the knowledge that at one time he was mentioned in the same breath with one of the most evil men to ever walk the planet.
