House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi today said that “Sean Spicer must be fired.”
Pelosi was incensed by Spicer’s comments about how Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” He said in his clarification that “he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing” and he made reference to “Holocaust centers” people were sent to.
Pelosi has now joined the Anne Frank Center in calling for Spicer to be fired:
While Jewish families across America celebrate Passover, the chief spokesman of this White House is downplaying the horror of the Holocaust.
Sean Spicer must be fired, and the President must immediately disavow his spokesman’s statements. Either he is speaking for the President, or the President should have known better than to hire him.
Pelosi’s statement is far more restrained than the Anne Frank Center’s, which accused Spicer of engaging in “Holocaust denial.”
