"We're going to make Germany great again, that I can tell you": Bill Maher shows how Donald Trump and Hitler can sound eerily similar

On "Real Time," Bill Maher showed a video of Hitler speech "translated" into English — and it sounded very familiar

"Real Time" host Bill Maher last night went to the trouble of having one of Hitler's speeches "translated" to English in order to contextualize Donald Trump's idiosyncratic, KKK-endorsed hate-speech.

Since Trump entered the race in August, it has been widely re-reported that he at one time kept a volume of Hitler's speeches in a cabinet by his bed, which, according to his ex-wife Ivana, he would occasionally thumb through.


The uncommon practice was first reported in a 1990 Vanity Fair profile of Trump, and has since been added to the stockpile of ammunition the Republican party is gathering in order to somehow, some way block a Trump nomination at the Convention in July.

"We're going to make Germany great again, that I can tell you," Maher's translation begins. "Germany doesn't win anymore. England, France, America -- they're laughing at us. The Treaty of Versailles? A terrible deal!"

"And look, I love the Jews -- nobody loves the Jews more than me, but folks, either we have a Fatherland or we don't," Hitler continues. "So we're gonna have to build a camp. And I will make the Jews pay for it."
