The Anne Frank Center is calling for White House squeeze secretary Sean Spicer to be released after his Tuesday remarks asserting Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons amid World War II.
In an announcement posted on Facebook, the inside’s official executive impacted Spicer, saying the White House representative “does not have the honesty” to serve in his post.
“On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death,” Steven Goldstein said in a statement.
“Spicer’s statement is the evilest slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary.”
He included: “President Trump must fire him at once.”
During Tuesday’s press briefing, Spicer referenced Hitler while discussing Syrian President Bashar Assad and the current concoction strike in Syria that provoked a military reaction from the U.S.
“You had someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said. Hitler is known to have utilized cyanide gas in mass murders of Jews.
Later in the instructions, Spicer was made a request to clear up his remarks.
“When it comes to sarin gas, [Hitler] was not using the gas on his people the same way that Assad is doing,” Spicer said amid his development.
“I understand your point. Thank you. I appreciate that. He brought them into the Holocaust centers; I understand that. I was saying in the way that Assad used them where he went into town, dropped them into the middle of town. I appreciate the clarification. That was not the intent.”
Taking after the instructions, Spicer discharged a further proclamation saying he wasn’t attempting to “lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust.”
“However, I was trying to draw a contrast of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on innocent people,” he said in the statement.
