Chelsea Clinton Mocks Sean Spicer As Social Media Explodes Over Hitler Remark

Outrage on social media over Sean Spicer’s asinine remark about Hitler.

Social media explodes after Sean Spicer compared Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to Adolf Hitler, claiming that even someone as “despicable” as the infamous dictator “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”

Asked to clarify that remark, Spicer added that Hitler “was not using the gas on his own people the same way Assad used them.”

As NBC News reports, “German Nazis murdered Jews in gas chambers during the Holocaust by the millions with the use of chemical gas agents, like Zyklon B.”

Spicer did go on to acknowledge that Hitler did bring gas “into the Holocaust centers…I understand that,” and later tried to clarify his remarks.

“In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust,” Spicer said, adding: “However, I was trying to draw a contrast of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on innocent people.”

Social media exploded with celebrities and reporters pointing out the error of Spicer’s statement to include former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton.

Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Eli Stokols weighed in as well:
