Linda Ronstadt: Trump Is ‘Like Hitler and Mexicans Are the New Jews’

Fact checked
Linda Ronstadt compares Trump to Hitler, says Mexicans are the new Jews

Music icon Linda Ronstadt attacked President Trump on Monday, comparing him to Adolf Hitler and declaring that Mexicans are the “new Jews” in a disturbing interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

In the interview, the Trump-hating Grammy-winning singer said there were “great parallels” between the U.S. and Germany shortly before Naziism took hold.

“As Hitler rose to power there were a lot of chances to stop him and they didn’t speak out,” Ms. Ronstadt warned.

“And the industrial complex thought that they could control him once they got him in office and, of course, he was not controllable. And by the time he got established, he put his own people in place and he, you know, stacked the courts and did what he had to do to consolidate his power.” reports: Mr. Cooper countered that people might be “surprised” to hear such an extreme comparison.

“If you read the history, you won’t be surprised,” Ms. Ranstadt replied. “It’s exactly the same. Find a common enemy for everybody to hate. I was sure that Trump was gonna get elected the day he announced, and I said it’s gonna be like Hitler and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And sure enough, that’s what he delivered.”

Ms. Ronstadt, who retired in 2011 after being diagnosed with supranuclear palsy, a rare brain disease, also spoke about how her inability to sing has impacted her relationship with more conservative family members.

“It’s a strain on my family relations because some of my family in Tucson are Republicans, and instead of talking about that, we sing together. We’d have a great time,” she said, Yahoo reported. “Now I have to be careful because we’ve had so much taken away from us by this administration, I’m not willing to let him take my family relationships away. My family, the parts that were Republican were fairly rational Republicans. We don’t have that in our current White House.”


  1. She is now an elderly and very sick woman. Many families have a elderly family member that says horrible things. Ronstadt has become that old lady.

  2. Drug-related deaths in Mexico for the 1st 6 months of 2019 was more than 17,000. The number of Mexicans killed by the US was ZERO.
    How, exactly is Trump ‘Hitler’? What exactly has been taken from her by Trump’s administration?
    This is just the paranoid ravings of an old lady with dementia and CNN should be ashamed of themselves (I know, not possible) for exploiting her.

  3. Ronstadt has NO excuse, she’s older than me and I’ve watched DJt for 40 yrs. He was always being interviewed by the media, who loved him until he ran for president. Intelligent people have to ask why that is. But she really should know better, he was always exposing the deep state for years, how come she doesn’t know that he’s here to rescue America, not destroy it?

  4. Governor ‘Moonbeam’ must have injected Linda with MKUltra serum because she is “One Stoned Pony”.

  5. Her idiotic comments have ruined her music for many of us in Tucson, her home town!

    You’re no good, you’re no good, baby you’re no good.
