Donald Trump’s Favorite Speechwriter? You Guessed It. Hitler.

Donald Trump’s been making so many outlandish racist and xenophobic comments in the barrel roll over a waterfall that is his campaign for the Republican nomination that it almost makes you wonder where he draws his inspiration from.
No wait, no it doesn’t because it’s Hitler.
I mean, it’s pretty obvious it isn’t Mandela. Or even someone slightly less racist than Hitler. Nope. He’s fully stiff for the Furher. According to one of his ex-wives, Trump kept a book of Hitler’s words in his bedroom.
From Business Insider:
According to a 1990 Vanity Fair interview, Ivana Trump once told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that her husband, real-estate mogul Donald Trump, now a leading Republican presidential candidate, kept a book of Hitler’s speeches near his bed.
“Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed … Hitler’s speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist,” Marie Brenner wrote.
Pressed on it, Trump answered exactly as Trump would:
When Brenner asked Trump about how he came to possess Hitler’s speeches, “Trump hesitated” and then said, “Who told you that?”
“I don’t remember,” Brenner reportedly replied.
Trump then recalled, “Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of ‘Mein Kampf,’ and he’s a Jew.”
Don’t blame me, the Jew did it. Classic Trump.
I’m starting to think he might win.
