Out director Jill Soloway on Sunday
compared GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.
Soloway, the creator of Amazon's
Transparent, won an Emmy Award for directing on Sunday.
In comments to Variety backstage
during the awards show, Soloway lit into Trump.
“Jews were other-ized in Nazi Germany
to gain political power for Hitler, and right now Donald Trump is
doing the same thing. He's other-izing people. He calls women pigs if
they don't look like beauty pageant contestants. He blames Muslims
and Mexicans for our problems. He makes fun of disabled people. This
is other-izing with a capital 'O,'" Soloway
“It has been used in our history
before to start and win wars. He needs to be called out at every
chance he gets for being one of the most dangerous monsters to ever
approach our lifetimes. He's a complete dangerous monster, and at any
moment that I have to call out Trump for being an inheritor to
Hitler, I will,” she added.
Cohen: Donald Trump has “no dignity or class whatsoever.”)
