Philly Newspaper Cover Depicts Donald Trump As The New Hitler (PHOTO)

The newest edition of the Philadelphia Daily News compares Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler after the former reality TV star proposed barring Muslims from entering the U.S.

The Daily News’ Tuesday front page, headlined “THE NEW FUROR,” shows the real estate mogul with his hand thrust high in a suggestive salute and glistening with sweat from speaking to a crowd of supporters.

The paper seized on a wave of incredulous criticism after the real estate mogul suggested plans to bar all Muslims from entering the country as an anti-terror measure, promptly sparking comparisons to the Nazi dictator.

But the uproar didn’t much bother Trump. During a Tuesday appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Trump cited the example of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was heavily criticized for the internment of Japanese-American citizens in World War II but later “they named highways after him!”

Here’s the cover, via the Newseum:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
