Spicer: Bashar Assad Is Worse Than Hitler [VIDEO]

The New York Daily News reports:

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer declared unequivocally that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons during World War II on Tuesday, triggering a firestorm as people pointed out Nazis’ use of gas to kill Jews and others during the Holocaust.

“We didn’t use chemical weapons in WWII. We had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer declared as he attacked Russia for backing Bashar Assad’s brutal regime in Syria.

He dug himself deeper when offered a chance to clarify a few minutes later. “When you come to sarin gas, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing,” he said to shock in the White House briefing room. Hitler infamously used hydrogen cyanide known as Zyklon B at Nazi death camps targeting Jewish and other people.
