Sean Spicer Humanized The Holocaust And Twitter Made Him Suffer For It

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was questioned during a press briefing about what he was referring to when he claimed that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons.

Spicer compared Syrian President Bashar Assad to Adolf Hitler. “You had someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” he said.

He went on to explain himself where he referred to concentration camps as “Holocaust centers.”

“When it comes to Sarin gas, [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing,” Spicer said.

“I understand your point. Thank you. I appreciate that. He brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. I was saying in the way that Assad used them where he went into town, dropped them into the middle of town. I appreciate the clarification. That was not the intent.”

Spicer drew a lot of attention on social media with his comment and many people responded to the press secretary.
