Anti-Defamation League Offers To Educate Sean Spicer On Holocaust

Sean Spicer sparks outrage after claim 'Hitler didn't use chemical weapons'

"I shouldn't have done it and I won't do it again", Spicer told CNN in an interview.

Spicer claimed during a press conference that Adolf Hitler didn't sink to the level of Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad and use chemical gas to kill to his own people.

Cramer was commenting on Spicer after a Tuesday comparison of the two leaders, during which Spicer made reference to Hitler to emphasize the atrocities of al-Assad's regime. Spicer responded: "He brought them into the Holocaust centers - I understand that".

Later asked to explain, Spicer said he meant to say that Hitler had not used chemical weapons in battlefield situations as Assad did last week.

On Tuesday, Spicer said Syria's chemical weapons attack on civilians was worse than anything Hitler did.

Spicer's comments drew a sharp rebuke from both US Jewish groups and politicians, including calls for his resignation from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the New York-based Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect.

"When you come to Syrian gas, he was not using it on his own people", said Spicer. "Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable". The letter said that while he's apologized for his remarks, they "exposed a serious gap in your knowledge of the Holocaust, its impact, and the lessons we can learn from it".

A reporter yelled out that the Jews had been gassed. "But if I'm President Trump, I'm like, well Jesus Christ, we're a laughingstock".

"While Jewish families across America celebrate Passover, the chief spokesman of this White House is downplaying the horror of the Holocaust", she said in a statement.

"If you basically put down a red line and say don't use chemical weapons, and it's been enforced in the Western community, around the world - worldwide community for decades - don't use chemical weapons", Mr. Matthews said in 2013 on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". "What did the Nazis use to exterminate millions of Jews if not chemicals in their death camps?"

The White House Press secretary serves as a messenger between the president and the American people.
