"Every moment I have to call him out for being an inheritor to Hitler, I will."


After respective Emmy wins on Sunday, Transparentcreator Jill Solloway and star Jeffrey Tambor talked to the press backstage, and they had some choice things to say about Donald Trump.

Jill Soloway:

"Jews were 'Otherized' in Nazi Germany to gain political power for Hitler, and right now Donald Trump is doing the same thing. He's 'Otherizing' people. He calls women 'pigs' if they don't look like beauty pageant contestants, he blames Muslims and Mexicans for our problems. He makes fun of disabled people. This is Otherizing with a capital 'O.' It has been used in our history before to start and win wars. And he needs to be called out at every chance he gets for being one of the most dangerous monsters to ever approach our lifetimes. He's a complete dangerous monster and every moment I have to call him out for being an inheritor to Hitler, I will."

Trump recently called out Anderson Cooper (the first openly gay debate moderator in history) as being an unfair, "biased" option for the role (but he'll still grudgingly attend the first presidential debate against Hillary Clinton on September 26 at 9 PM).

Watch the video from Variety below, which also includes discussion on Caitlyn Jenner, Maura Pfefferman, and what the pair have learned from each other over Transparent's journey.
