Louis C.K. spoke to New York magazine about a host of topics, including his much-publicized spat with GOP nominee Donald Trump.

C.K. conceded that equating Trump to Hitler "was a messy thing to do," but stopped short of apologizing.

"Celebrities saying things politically is obnoxious, because you’ve got a bullhorn that was given to you for one reason and you used that bullhorn for something else," he continued. "But also I think when there’s somebody as terrible as Trump running, you’re a little bit of a coward by keeping it to yourself if you’re really concerned about it. I felt like I had to raise my hand and be counted because I believe he’s a bigot with a hole in his heart. A guy who shouldn’t be anywhere near the fucking thing is the Republican nominee."
