Donald ‘The Donald’ Trump, owner of the world’s most militant comb over, relentlessly continues to cause political tsunamis all over America. Trump continues to win primaries as we speak, despite being arguably the most divisive presidential candidate ever.

Whilst the rest of the world looks on benumbed, bewildered, and bemused, his hyper-patriot support base keeps growing, with each new supporter believing that the Trump shall set America free, free of Muslims, free of Mexicans, free of migrants, and free of political correctness. They also view Trump as a much needed successor to the socialist Muslim Obama, and as the only real alternative to the radical Hillary Clinton.

Yes, his rallies and speeches quicken the pulse of any closet-fascist, but they also raise the ire of many others. Below is a collection of quotes, clips, and cartoons, from a variety of people who have had said ire raised to well beyond roof-level proportions. Anyways, enjoy!

Comedian Craig Ferguson breaks down Trump’s old tricks…

I think he’s a very singular individual. But it’s an old historical trick: “Everybody’s trying to get us! Everybody’s trying to steal out stuff! We better be careful!” That’s old as human beings…Caesar did that, every politician in history did that. Some of them have been telling the truth, some of them have been using it for their own political ends, and some of them have been doing both. So he’s a recognizable figure. – Craig Ferguson

Activist Yasmina Blackburn says Trump is only interested in the winning of Trump…

Trump is running his campaign like his businesses — with a no holds bar determination that has only one goal in mind: the winning of Donald Trump. In politics, he doesn’t have to be bound by the legal or ethical standards that most organizations utilize when dealing with people. He has taken his own advice to extremist levels — of garnering media attention by being outrageous and shocking. Everyone thought it was funny at first and now, it is anything but. Somewhere down the line, he forgot (or never knew) that serving in public office means you are a servant to the people. He speaks in classic narcissistic language, bragging about the magazine covers he is on and how his ratings are soaring. It’s a Me! Me! Me! show with Trump as the agitator, generator and facilitator of attention-harvesting, and seemingly getting high from the incessant buzz on social media. He’s basking in it. Many are arguing that the attention by the major news outlets has not been fair, providing Trump with a center ring platform of a three ring circus. He seems more concerned about Trump than any American citizen- and a portion of the U.S. population is eating it up. Some of his supporters are looking for a savior — as if that exists in politics. What sort of mindset feeds off the drum beat of a narcissist? – Yasmina Blackburn

Trump Yes We Klan

Writer Chemi Shalev says even American Jews will run away from this Republican…

…the Jews won’t be fleeing Trump because of his policies towards Israel…The Jews won’t abandon Trump because he’s married for the third time, or because he went bankrupt four times, or because he uses dirty words whenever he can. They certainly won’t desert Trump because of his positions on abortion, health care or separation of church and state…The Jews will run away from Trump because he scares them. Because his demagoguery is ominous, his willingness to slash and burn anyone standing in his way is disturbing, his tendency to incite his supporters against other ethnic groups from rapist Mexicans to terrorist Muslims, is a source of deep anxiety. Beneath the great wave of popular support for Trump one can make out with increasing clarity the dark undercurrents of rage and resentment and xenophobia that is often seen morphing into White supremacism and abhorrence of African Americans and then, on the outskirts, bad old hatred of the Jews. The allusions to Germany in the 1930’s are absurd, no doubt, but nonetheless surfacing with ever-increasing frequency. – Chemi Shalev

Writer Robert Reich goes further to say he is worried not just about the future of America but also the world…

Trump has finally reached a point where parallels between his presidential campaign and the fascists of the first half of the 20th century — lurid figures such as Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Oswald Mosley, and Francisco Franco — are too evident to overlook…Viewing Donald Trump in light of the fascists of the first half of the twentieth century — who used economic stresses to scapegoat others, created cults of personality, intimidated opponents, incited violence, glorified their nations and disregarded international law, and connected directly with the masses — helps explain what Trump is doing and how he is succeeding. It also suggests why Donald Trump presents such a profound danger to the future of America and the world. – Robert Reich

Comedian Louis C K also refers to Trump and his likeness to Hitler…

Louis C K wrote an epic email to his fans recently, in which he described in detail his dislike for all things Trump:

Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all…He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous…If you are a true conservative. Don’t vote for Trump. He is not one of you. He is one of him. Everything you have heard him say that you liked, if you look hard enough you will see that he one day said the exact opposite. He is playing you. – Louis C K

Trump Hitler

Trump Buffoon

Comedian Bill Maher also sees similarities between Trump and Hitler…

…but even Hitler is none too happy with the comparisons…

Because of all the Trump/Hilter comparison we now have to suspend Godwin’s Law…

According to the Independent:

Godwin’s rule of Nazi analogies is an ancient internet adage asserting:

“As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”

What that means is: on the internet, it doesn’t matter what you’re talking about — sooner or later, a comparison to Hitler or Nazism will crop up.

American author Mike Godwin coined the term back in 1990, and not only has it proved pretty accurate since then, turns out it holds for offline stuff like articles and speeches.

But then, on June 16th 2015, a terrible happening occurred.

It shook world politics to its very core.

It made people ask fundamental questions about themselves and the world they want to live in.

And it now appears to have f–ked with natural laws too.

We are talking, of course, about Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — which, according to the rule’s Wikipedia page, has led to the temporary suspension of Godwin’s Law.

That’s right, folks: since Trump is dominating so much of the conversation at the moment, and he’s pretty much an actual fascist, we don’t really need statistical laws to predict when someone will compare his run to the rise of Hitler or Nazism anymore.

It’s, just, well…our daily, nightmareish reality.

Trump Wunderbar

We now need a whole new level of criticism because of Trump…

There is no precedent to Trump, really. No one has been this consistently vicious, uncaring of who he insults, both on a personal level and a political level. So it’s therefore not surprising that what Trump is doing, in addition to everything else, is engendering a new kind of comedic criticism, because the old kind was too mild. – Professor Paul Levinson

And here is John Oliver with that criticism, destroying Trump and resurrecting Drumpf…

Even Bill O’Reilly has a go at Trump, challenging Trump on his Muslim ban…

Yes, you did read that correctly. I think we all need a moment to let those words sink in and settle. Bill O’Reilly, a Fox News stalwart, actually defends Muslims and Muslim nations against Trump. Now there are some words I never thought I would type!

We end with George Clooney calling Trump “a xenophobic fascist”…

I met Donald once. I was sitting in a booth and we talked for a while. Then he did Larry King, and he said I was very short. And I was like: ‘I was sitting down the whole time, Donald!’…He’s just an opportunist. Now he’s a fascist; a xenophobic fascist…Let’s put things into perspective. You know, the truth of the matter is, in election season, things go crazy, and the loudest voices are the furthest and most extreme. So you hear a massively stupid idea, like we’re going to ban Muslims from the country. Now, we’re not ever going to do that. It says in the Statue of Liberty, bring us your huddled masses. It’s not what’s going to happen. – George Clooney
