Billie Joe Armstrong doesn’t label Donald Trump an American idiot. No, he’s compared him to someone much worse: Adolf Hitler.
In an interview published in Kerrang, the Green Day frontman likened the Republican presidential hopeful to the historically villainous Austrian. “The worst problem I see about Trump is who his followers are,” Armstrong told the British rock weekly. “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 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!”
