Show #121 | March 26, 2016 | What’s behind the increasing comparisons of candidate Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, one of the greatest scourges of the modern age? Shouts from within a rowdy crowd are easily dismissed. But Anne Frank’s stepsister and multiple prominent international voices – including past and present presidents of Mexico, and an honored Israeli journalist – are now on record with the same warning. Angie hosts a panel to discuss and take questions from the audience.
