Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has never been one to shy away from sharing his political perspectives ― the band did release a whole album called “American Idiot” which referenced the George W. Bush administration multiple times ― and these days, he’s no different.
In a brand new interview, Armstrong went in on Trump and his group of loyal supporters, saying, “The worst issue I see about Trump is who his followers are.”
“I actually feel bad for them,” he added, “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.”
The rocker then went in for the kill.
“[Trump] just said, ‘You have no alternatives and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s fucking Hitler, guy!” he said, adding, “I don’t even understand how else to describe it. I wish I were over-exaggerating. And sometimes perhaps I do over-exaggerate with Bush. But with Trump, I just can’t wait ‘til he’s gone.”
Armstrong joins a long list of celebs who’ve compared the Republican presidential nominee to the infamous fascist, among them Louis C.K., Eva Longoria and Sarah Silverman, who went so far as to dress up as Hitler to prove her point.
