White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer apologized for remarks he made at a press briefing comparing Syrian President Bashar al Assad to Adolf Hitler.
Said Spicer: “Hitler didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”
Said Spicer in his apology: “I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week, using chemical weapons and gas. Frankly, I mistakenly made an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which there is no comparison. And for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”
