As everyone knows by now, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said today that “Hitler didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” in justifying the Trump administration’s response to a sarin gas attack carried out by the Syrian regime last week.
Spicer just appeared on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, where he apologized for the statement.
“I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, there is no comparison. I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”
