Sean Spicer sparks outrage after claim 'Hitler didn't use chemical weapons'

The last time Spicer spoke to reporters on camera, Tuesday, he condemned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime for using chemical weapons against civilians.

Mr Spicer apologised for making an "inappropriate and insensitive" comparison to the Holocaust in comments about the Syrian president's alleged chemical weapon use. "It was a mistake".

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.

Prominent Long Island Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum, from Temple Israel of Lawrence, called Spicer's comments "beyond reprehensible".

While Spicer has already apologized again and again for his mishap, Congressman Kevin Cramer (R-ND) appears to be doubling down on Spicer's statement, according to CNN.

The New York-based Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect also called on Trump to fire Spicer, saying he denied that Hitler gassed Jews during the Holocaust.
