Stern heard Spicer’s comments, he thought to himself, “Trump’s got to fire this guy.”
Press Secretary Sean Spicer had said that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” Obvious forgetting Hitler’s supposed use of gas chambers to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust.
In a recent interview with CNN, Spicer apologized for making “an inappropriate, insensitive reference to the Holocaust.” He says there was no comparison and “it was a mistake to do that.”
Spicer later indicated that Hitler had not gassed “his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”
Stern still not convinced by Spicer’s intent went on to say that he has actually managed to make Assad look good.
“He actually got [Assad] to look not so bad for using chemical weapons on his own people because the discussion became, Sean Spicer. How could you not know that Hitler marched his own people to concentration camps and turned on chemical gas? It was somewhat remarkable that a guy this high up in the administration wouldn’t know this,” Stern said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has called Sean Spicer’s gassing story “groundless accusations” and called for a “detailed and unbiased investigation” into the deaths.
