STATEMENT from Anne Frank Center re: Spicer denying gas use in Holocaust. #FireSpicer. You had someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn’t sink to using chemical weapons.”
Since Adolf Hitler   did use chemical weapons to kill millions of people in the Holocaust, Spicer was offered a chance to clarify his comments. His follow-up may have just made things worse, however, as he added that Hitler “was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.” Spicer   then referred to the Nazi death camps as “Holocaust centers,” and repeatedly misstated the Syrian president’s name as “Ashad.”
Social media exploded in the wake of Spicer’s comments, and the Anne Frank Center issued a statement calling for President Trump to fire Spicer “at once.” As many pointed out, Spicer’s Holocaust comments happened to land on the second day of Passover, the annual Jewish holiday commemorating an exodus from slavery and suffering in Egypt. When one journalist asked about President Donald Trump’s recent bombing of a Syrian airfield in response to a chemical attack perpetrated by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, Spicer responded that “we didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. #Antisemitism #NeverAgain pic.twitter.com/4dB9ESCaZr

If Sean Spicer had to give a marathon "Chappelle-at-the-Laugh-Factory" length presser, he'd for sure reveal at least 1 impeachable offense. pic.twitter.com/T6oEnkXnU0

.@POTUS @realDonaldTrump MUST FIRE SEAN SPICER NOW FOR ENGAGING IN HOLOCAUST DENIAL. The press secretary began the briefing by nodding to a recent   Daily Show   sketch that mashed up one of Spicer’s briefings with a kindergarten classroom, but after that, things got serious. He didn't go "Time to do the Holocaust."

Hopeful Frederick Douglass can make time in his busy schedule – he's doing an amazing job! They weren't called that. Please use this hashtag. Sean Spicer’s White House press briefing took a real turn Tuesday. It's a few blocks away.
