Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed today that Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons during World War II.

“You had someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said during Wednesday’s press briefing.

Hitler is well known to have used cyanide gas in mass murders of Jews.

Spicer was using the Hitler comparison to make a point about how dastardly Syrian President Bashar Assad acted earlier this month when he attacked his own people with sarin gas, which provoked President Trump to strike a Syrian airfield.

“If you are Russia, ask yourself, is this a country and regime that you want to align yourself with?” he asked.

Later in the briefing, Spicer walked back his remarks when a reporter challenged him to explain, saying Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons “in the same way” as Assad.

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

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.”

As you can imagine, it didn’t go over well on Twitter:
