Sean Spicer: "Hitler Didn't Even Sink to Using Chemical Weapons"

Pro-tip: Don't make Hitler comparisons. Ever.

Seriously, just don't.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been the subject of widespread criticism after making comments in which he states that Adolf Hitler didn't gas his own people "in the same way" that Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad did.

In a briefing, Spicer said that even Hitler "didn't sink to the level of using chemical weapons" like Assad, who dropped sarin nerve gas on his own people last week -- prompting strikes from the U.S. at President Donald Trump's command.

The statement is completely false, as Hitler gassed millions of Jews during the Holocaust using Zyklon B, a lethal chemical pesticide.

 

Spicer's remarks caused immediate backlash and correctives from scholars of the Holocaust, with the Anne Frank Center calling on President Trump to fire him

 

When given an opportunity to clarify, there was not much clarification to be had.
