Louis C.K. is not a fan of Donald Trump. The 48-year-old comedian had some choice words for the Republican presidential candidate, who he compared to Adolf Hitler, in a promotional email for his Web series Horace and Pete on Saturday, March 5,.

“Please stop it with voting for Trump,” C.K. wrote. “It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the s–t coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.”

C.K. clarified that he isn’t advocating nor endorsing Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, indicating that he would prefer to have a conservative president to “balance” out Barack Obama’s two consecutive terms.

“When I was growing up and when I was a younger man, liberals and conservatives were friends with differences,” he wrote. “They weren’t enemies. And it always made sense that everyone gets a president they like for a while and then hates the president for a while. But it only works if the conservatives put up a good candidate. A good smart conservative to face the liberal candidate so they can have a good argument and the country can decide which way to go this time.”

He added, “Trump is not that. He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous.”

The Horace and Pete creator isn’t the first celeb to denounce Trump. Raven-Symoné explained on The View that she is considering moving to Canada if the conservative candidate gets elected. “I already have my ticket,” she said on the February 25 episode. “I literally bought my ticket. I swear.”

Miley Cyrus took to Instagram to express her frustration on March 2, writing, “Honestly f–k this s–t I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean!”

“If you do vote for Trump, at least look at him very carefully first,” C.K. advised in his email. “You owe that to the rest of us. Know and understand who he is. Spend one hour on Google and just read it all. I don’t mean listen to me or listen to liberals who put him down. Listen to your own people.”
