White House press secretary Sean Spicer has said the unthinkable.
Astonishingly he told media that Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons against his own people. But we know that millions of Jews were murdered in gas chambers during the Holocaust.
Spicer had been commenting on last week’s chemical attack, which the US said was launched by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

The press secretary was asked why the White House expected Russian President Vladimir Putin to stop supporting Syria when he replied “we didn’t even use chemical weapons in World War II, someone as despicable as Hitler didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons”.
“You have to ask yourself if you are Russia, is this a country and a regime you want to align yourself with?”
Now there are calls for Spicer to be sacked.
