Sarah Silverman took recent comparisons to Donald Trump to a new level by dressing up as the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler on late-night show Conan on Thursday.

"Don't get me wrong, Conan,” she told her host, Conan O’Brien, while wearing a brown suit replete with a Nazi-insignia armband. “I agree with a lot he says — a lot. Like 90 percent of what he says, I'm like, 'this guy gets it,'" Silverman said about the leading Republican presidential candidate. "But I don't like the way he says it. It's crass."

Two former presidents of Mexico made the comparison after Trump accused their country of sending rapists and drug runners across the U.S. border and said he would make Mexico pay for a border wall. Comedian Louis C.K. also likened Trump to the dictator.

Silverman did not miss an opportunity to discuss Trump’s private parts, which came up in a recent GOP debate.

"What kind of person talks about his penis size on national television? Oh yeah, I'm so sure Donald Trump has a big penis,” said Silverman. “I famously have a micro penis. That's what makes a tyrant."

After getting some sympathy from O’Brien, she waxed “Anyway, all these comparisons to Trump, it's like, it bums me out. You know what I mean? Sometimes I watch him and I'm like, 'Is that how people see me?'"

She ended by declaring: "And I have to be honest. Trump, he's starting to make me rethink some of the things I've done," before joking, "Ah, who am I kidding? I've gotta be me!"
