I never once thought that Sean Spicer was a great choice for press secretary. Besides violating an unspoken rule -don't mention Hitler, ever, just don't do it- He gets history wrong and makes a ridiculous comparison between Assad and the man who killed 6 million Jews during WW2. He also calls concentration camps 'Holocaust centers' here. A poor performance today.
"You had a -- you know someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons," Spicer said.
Asked by ABC News' Cecila Vega to later clarify his comments, Spicer gave a further muddled answer, "I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no -- he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing," Spicer said of Hitler.
