Today, Sean Spicer was talking on the subject of Syria and chemical weapons when he said something really, really f*cking stupid about Adolf Hitler.
The question was about what makes the Trump administration so sure President Vladimir Putin will denounce all support of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad over his use of chemical weapons. Rather than answer that question, Spicey had to spice it up and gave the dumbest answer in the history of White House press secretaries.
You look, we didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had a, someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.
Hurr durr. WHAT!?
Pretty sure the use of Zyklon-B and gassings by carbon monoxide count as chemical weapons, smart guy. And I’m pretty sure 6 million dead Jews will disagree that Hitler wasn’t that bad. Is Spicer serious? Is he a holocaust denier or just really stupid? Maybe both.
What is abundantly clear, is the administration can’t ever seem to distance themselves from accusations that they are living Nazis and Spicer’s answer today will not help that image.
