Sean Spicer Faces Hitler Comparison Backlash.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has found himself under fire for comments made during an April 11th, 2017 press briefing: “You look — we didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons. So you have to, if you’re Russia, ask yourself is this a country that you and a regime that you want to align yourself with? You have previously signed on to international agreements rightfully acknowledging that the use of chemical weapons should be out of bounds by every country. To not stand up to not only Assad, but your own word, should be troubling.”
