North Dakota congressman: Spicer Hitler comment 'not without some validity'

North Dakota congressman: Spicer Hitler comment 'not without some validity'

Spicer made the original comment while trying to shame Russian Federation for its alliance with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

Mr Spicer faced calls to quit over his comments, which came a day after the start of Jewish holiday Passover.

"It is painful to myself to know I did something like that", Spicer said Wednesday. I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers.

Following his comments Tuesday, The Anne Frank Center tweeted: "MUST FIRE SEAN SPICER NOW FOR ENGAGING IN HOLOCAUST DENIAL".

"He actually got him to look not so bad for using chemical weapons on his own people because the discussion became, Sean Spicer, how could you not know that Hitler marched his own people - Jews, gypsies, homosexuals. he marched them into concentration camps and turned on what is in fact chemical gas", Stern said. Eighty-seven people, including children, were killed in last week's chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Ruling clears way for Arkansas' 1st execution since 2005
That's true whether it's the inmate who is seeking an eleventh-hour reprieve or the state that wants to put a prisoner to death. Arkansas inmates set for a series of executions before the end of the month have filed a new request for stays.

Reaction from around the world continued Wednesday.

Democrats and Jewish organisations condemned Mr Spicer's comments.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman said contemporary comparisons with Nazi atrocities were ill-advised.

"I love it", Spicer said of his job.

Two conservative news outlets had made a similar comparison between Hitler and Assad earlier in the week.

Pundit reacts to Marcus Rashford's display for Man United v Chelsea
Mourinho, though, praised the performance of 19-year-old forward Rashford and his team-mates for a dominant Old Trafford showing. Herrera looked to have handled the ball in the build-up to that goal but he wasn't penalized.

The weird statement ignored the Nazi madman's use of toxic gas to exterminate millions of Jews. Earlier in the year, the White House generated criticism by issuing a statement on global Holocaust Remembrance Day that did not mention Jews.

"You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons", Spicer said when asked about Russia's alliance with the Syrian government.

Spicer shared that he had not spoken to Trump this morning, but would not comment on any possible private conversations he had with the president or other White House officials on the matter.

A White House spokesman said later that "nothing has changed in our posture" and the president retains the option to act if it's in the national interest.
