• Eva Longoria Compares Donald Trump To Hitler 

    Former Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria says Donald Trump’s controversial remarks regarding illegal immigration liken him to Adolf Hitler.

    “It struck a chord within our community that touched our emotions so deep that I don’t want to contribute to that poison being spread,” Longoria said during a luncheon for the National Association of Latino Independent Producers.

    Longoria said she initially hesitated to comment on Trump because she didn’t want “to contribute to the emotional poison.”

    “If I contribute, it’s just going to bring more attention to the original comments,” she said.

    The 40-year-old Mexican-American actress said Trump’s remarks about securing the border with Mexico, particularly his comments regarding illegal immigrants raping women and girls and bringing crime and drugs into the U.S., warrant a comparison to the former dictator of Nazi Germany, who ordered the murders of roughly 11 million civilians before and during World War II.

    “What I think he doesn’t understand and what people don’t understand is words create emotional poison…Hitler moved a nation with words, just words,” the actress said. “So you have to expect this backlash. If you say something like that, as he has said, you must expect a backlash.”

    Trump said the U.S. has no way of knowing what kind of people are crossing the border while discussing international trade and immigration during his June 16 presidential announcement.

    “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best… They’re sending people who have lots of problems,” Trump said. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”

    The billionaire business mogul has since severed his business relationships with NBC, Univision and Macy’s  over the speech, is now suing Univision for $500 million and he stands by his comments.

    “I have great respect for Mexico and love for the Mexican people and their tremendous spirit,” Trump said after filing the Univision suit. “However, their leaders and trade negotiators are far smarter than those representing the United States, and our citizens and economy are suffering greatly as a result.”
