Spicer: I Was Not Trying to ‘Lessen the Horrendous Nature of the Holocaust,’ Just ‘Drawing a Contrast’
Sean Spicer has sent a statement to NBC News attempting to clarify his remarks about Hitler today.
Spicer said that unlike Assad, even Hitler didn’t sink to using chemical weapons, then said he only meant Hitler didn’t gas his own people, and then he made a mention of people being led to “Holocaust centers.”
This is how Spicer is clarifying his remarks (again):

You’ll notice the “however” is no longer in the statement by that one.
