Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on “The View” today and compared President Donald Trump to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
Unsurprisingly, Clinton’s comparison went unchecked by the co-hosts, with Joy Behar even stating “That’s right” in agreement with the statement.
During the show, Hillary was speaking about Trump and his chances of being reelected in 2024.
“Hitler was duly elected, right?” Clinton argued.
“That’s right,” Behar said as the co-hosts agreed with Hillary’s comments.
“So, all of a sudden someone with those tendencies – those dictatorial, authoritarian tendencies – would be like, ‘Ok, we’re going to shut this down, we’re going to throw these people in jail.’
“And, they didn’t usually telegraph that.
“Trump is telling us what he intends to do
“Take him at his word,” she added.
“The man means to throw people in jail who disagree with him… shut down legitimate press outlets, do what he can to literally undermine the rule of law and our country’s values.”
“He would use the military to stop protesters,” interrupted Behar.
Behar didn’t offer any evidence for her claim but was likely referring to Trump deploying the Nation Guard to quell the violence in Washington D.C. during the destructive Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.

Perhaps Clinton fears that Trump may “lock her up” if he’s back in the White House.
During a 2015 presidential debate, Trump famously told Hillary she’d “be in jail” if he was elected.
Trump is currently targetted by the Democrats in several politically motivated cases for questioning the results of the 2020 presidential election.
There is nothing illegal about questioning election results, however.
In the run-up to the 2024 election, the establishment is arguably trying to jail Trump for disagreeing with the results.
Clinton also alleged Trump would “shut down legitimate press outlets.”
However, Trump never shut down any of the media companies during his time in office, despite the round-the-clock-negative coverage of his presidency for his whole first term.
