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

December 8, 2015 10:14 a.m.

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!”
