Sean Spicer Defends Hitler, Then Immediately Makes It Much, Much Worse (VIDEO)

According to White House Propaganda Minister Sean Spicer, Syria’s Assad is much worse than Adolf Hitler because Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons on his own people — no, not even all those Jewish people he gassed at what Spicer calls “Holocaust Centers.” Yes, he actually said this.

“We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You had a, someone who is as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said. In fact, Adolf Hitler used chemical weapons on lots of people. More than 6,000 Jews were gassed at the Auschwitz “Holocaust center” daily. Hitler had mobile units — I guess Spicer would call them “Holocaust vans” — for when he absolutely had to use chemical weapons on his people while on the go.

It’s entirely probable that our favorite Zyklon Bastard simply wasn’t thinking. It’s not his strong suit. But it’s almost equally possible that Spicer, like many members of the Trump administration, don’t consider Jews to be people. Questioned about his remarks, Spicey attempted to partially walk back his remarks and failed hard.

A reporter later asked Spicer about his “Hitler” remarks. It was a chance for Spicer to say the one thing that could get him out of this — “I’m a moron and I’m sorry. I will resign in the morning” — but he managed to f*ck things up worse.

Spicer explained that Hitler “was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”

“There was not and the in the he brought them um to the Holocaust centers and I understand that,” Spicer continued, apparently unaware that there is a term for the places where Hitler totally didn’t gas his people. “But I’m saying that the way that Ashad used them where he went in to towns, dropped them down into the middle of towns. It was brought, so the use of it. I appreciate the clarification.”

So, basically, Assad is worse than Hitler because he didn’t provide valet service to mass executions, according to Spicer. Or something. His “clarification” Sucked.

Speaking as someone whose family fled the Holocaust, finding refuge as some of the few Jewish refugees the United States government didn’t turn away, f*ck this asshole. If you’re willing to point out that Hitler wasn’t really such a bad guy to promote your agenda, you’re probably wrong.
