“Answering a question about Russia’s potential complicity in the Syrian chemical attack last week, Spicer stretched for a Nazi Germany comparison.
‘You had someone who was as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,’ he said. ‘So you have to, if you are Russia, ask yourself is this a country that you and a regime that you want to align yourself with.’
Er, what? Hitler, of course, used lots and lots of chemical weapons — in the sense that he ordered the executions of millions of Jews in gas chambers during World War II.
Given that history, Spicer was asked later in the briefing to clarify his comments. In trying to do so, he made it worse.
Spicer’s Hitler comments virtually ensure another news cycle lost to an unforced error.”
Dismissive of Holocaust victims,
the lapdog delivered his dictum
with one fatal flaw:
He forgot Godwin’s Law.
(Hey Trump, arncha sorry you picked him?)
