The Anti-Defamation League Just Offered To Teach Spicer A Lesson After Hitler Comments

Earlier this week during a press briefing White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons and downplayed the Holocaust by referring to it as “Holocaust Centers.”

In Response the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) offered the press secretary an education course for him and his staff.

“While you have apologized, this week’s incident as well as others (notably the International Holocaust Remembrance Day statement omitting Jews and your vociferous defense of it), have exposed a serious gap in your knowledge of the Holocaust, its impact and the lessons we can learn from it,” ADL chief Jonathan Greenblatt wrote in a letter to Spicer Thursday.

“We did not use chemical weapons in World War II. You had someone as despicable as Hitler who did not even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said during his Tuesday press briefing.

That’s where Spicer made the mistake. While Hitler did not use chemical weapons on the battlefield, the Nazis killed millions of Jews in concentration camps using Zyklon B and other types of poison in gas chambers

Spicer did apologize afterwards during an interview with CNN.

“Frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust,” he said. “For that I apologize, it was a mistake to do that.”as a mistake to do that.”
