“It was a mistake to do that” | Sean Spicer apologizes for Hitler statements

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

Press secretary Sean Spicer  apologized Tuesday after saying Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” during World War II in an effort to to shame Al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons.

The comment was immediately countered and after  he made a few failed attempts to clear things up,  Spicer apologized in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

“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,” Spicer said. “And for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”
 Spicer, who said he was “aware” that gas chambers were used during the Holocaust, later said he should have “stayed focused” on Assad and asked people to forgive him for his “mistake.”
“My goal now and then is to stay focused on Assad and I should have,” he said. “I realized that I had made a mistake and I didn’t want to be a distraction to the President’s agenda.
The comment comes as Jewish people all over the world are celebrating Passover.
