Comedian Louis C.K. compared Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler and America to 1930s Germany in a fiery email blast to fans over the weekend.

The 48-year-old “Louie” star emailed fans Saturday announcing the sixth episode of his Web series “Horace and Pete,” including a lengthy postscript urging readers not to vote for Mr. Trump, Variety reported.

“Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler,” the comedian wrote. “And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the [expletive] coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.

“And I’m not advocating for Hillary or Bernie. I like them both, but frankly I wish the next president was a conservative only because we had Obama for eight years and we need balance,” he continued. “And not because I particularly enjoy the conservative agenda. I just think the government should reflect the people. And we are about 40 percent conservative and 40 percent liberal.”

Mr. C.K. went on to call Mr. Trump a “dangerous” and “insane bigot” who is only in politics to serve his own interests.

“Please pick someone else,” Mr. C.K. implored. “Like John Kasich. I mean that guy seems okay. I don’t like any of them myself but if you’re that kind of voter please go for a guy like that. It feels like between him and either democrat we’d have a decent choice. It feels like a healthier choice.

“If you are a true conservative. Don’t vote for Trump,” he continued. “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. In fact, if you do vote for Trump, at least look at him very carefully first. You owe that to the rest of us. Know and understand who he is.

“If Trump is president, he’s not going to change. He’s not going to do anything for you. He’s going to do everything for himself and leave you in the dust,” Mr. C.K. wrote.

“And really I’m not saying he’s evil or a monster. In fact I don’t think Hitler was. The problem with saying that guys like that are monsters is that we don’t see them coming when they turn out to be human, which they all are. Everyone is. Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he’ll never stop trying. He’s sick. Which makes him really really interesting. And he pulls you towards him which somehow feels good or fascinatingly bad. He’s not a monster. He’s a sad man. But all this makes him horribly dangerous if he becomes president. Give him another TV show. Let him pay to put his name on buildings. But please stop voting for him. And please watch Horace and Pete,” he concluded.
