‘I’m Well Aware of What [Hitler] Did’: Sean Spicer Apology Tour Continues on NBC

Press Secretary Sean Spicer spoke to NBC’s Peter Alexander today, where he continued to walk back his statements from yesterday about the Holocaust.

Spicer continues to draw significant blowback over his remarks about how “even [Adolf Hitler] didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” like Bashar al-Assad did last week in Syria. As Spicer talked about this on Wednesday, he said that while Assad has done bad things, it was a “mistake” to compare it to the atrocities that took place during World War II.

I’m well aware of what [Hitler] did. It was a distinction that didn’t need to get made, they’ve both done horrendous, heinous things to innocent people and to make any kind of comparison is really regrettable and a mistake. I’m absolutely sorry, especially during a week like this, to make a comparison that is inappropriate and inexcusable.

Spicer also responded to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who said that Spicer ought to be fired over his comments.
