Spicer apologizes for Hitler comment that angered many

During the daily White House press briefing, Spicer incorrectly claimed on Tuesday that Hitler didn't use chemical weapons during World War II.

Spicer apologised on Tuesday for "insensitive" remarks in which he asserted that unlike the Syrian regime, Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons.

"Your comparisons between Assad and Hitler were not only historically inaccurate but they also were inappropriate and offensive", said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt in a letter to Spicer Thursday.

When Colon-Ortiz didn't respond, the trooper later returned to the home and obtained a voluntary DNA sample from Colon-Ortiz. Speaking before the hearing, the suspect's lawyer said his client has no criminal record and the case is no slam dunk.

Stern was unswayed, however, and said of Spicer, "The guy's just not informed, and it's kind of embarrassing".

"While Jewish families across America celebrate Passover, the chief spokesman of this White House is downplaying the horror of the Holocaust", she said in a statement. Cramer, who advised President Donald Trump on energy issues during the transition and the campaign, has said Trump has asked him to run for the seat.

"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", Spicer said.

It is also a statement on how CONCACAF - once synonymous with corruption - has cleaned house, according to Montagliani. Canada has only ever qualified for one men's World Cup - in 1986. "I would assume this would be the same", he said.

Throwing up his hands, Coffman said: "He needs to go". "I just don't think he's serving the president well". But Hennen pressed him for more, saying of Spicer, "I think what he was saying is that Hitler didn't take chemical weapons out in a battle-like form and do what Assad did with these children". "You have to, if you're Russian Federation, ask yourself, is this a country. a regime that you want to align yourself with?"

At a Newseum event this morning about the role of the press in the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, Spicer described his comments as a "mistake" and told MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren that he let President Trump down.
