Last week Former Speaker, John Boehner, called Ted Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh." Today Fox News host, Kennedy, compared Donald Trump to ISIS.

The GOP has had a tough election cycle, with it's top 2 candidates being compared to a litany of fictional characters and extremist groups that murder people based on their religion, race, skin color or sexuality.

In the clip from Fox, Kennedy says:

"KENNEDY: It's like Al Qaeda with a marketing degree, and ISIS has figured out how to brand themselves, and do it pretty efficiently. And, it's almost like, and this is not making a metaphor ideologically, but Donald Trump using technology to further his presidential campaign while spending very little money. ISIS has done essentially the same thing.

HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): But you're not comparing those two?

KENNEDY: I'm not comparing those two at all. What I'm saying is they have figured out how to use technology to move their message forward."

Not "comparing" in the typical "let's look at A and B and see what they have in common" sense, right? Just talking about how these two things are *similar* uh huh.

Let's list the other hate groups that Trump could be compared to:

Hezbollah. They rely heavily on YouTube propaganda videos as well. Free marketing! Their goal, like Trump, is the entire expulsion of a race from a country (Israel). They haven't talked about a wall, though.

Fascism. In early 20th century Europe, following WWI, Fascism was a movement based on the ideaology that liberal democracy is obsolete and a state needs to be led by a strong leader. The state must be ready to respond to economic difficulties and does not rule out violence, as war can be a method of achieving strength. Sounds an awful like Herr Donald.

Finally, Nazism. Trump was previously compared to Hitler for his hate speech, demands that 1.6 billion Muslims get deported, promises of building a wall to "keep out" the Mexicans, force his sycophants to pledge their loyalty with a very Nazi like hand raise with an outstretch arm, palm down, and a verbal pledge at all rallies.

So there you have it. Your GOP leader can be compared to ISIS, Hezbollah, Fascism and Hitler!
