The German Chancellor’s Spokesperson criticized the statements made by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, claiming Assad is worse than Hitler. This morning, Spicer apologized for the comparison.
Yesterday (Tuesday), White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer provoked an uproar after saying that ‘even Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons’ during the Holocaust. Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Spokesperson Steffen Seibert said that “any comparison of current situations with Nazi crimes leads to nothing good.”
As reported earlier by JOL, yesterday evening, Spicer issued an apology. “It was a mistake,” he stated. However, some are still demanding that U.S. President Donald Trump fire Spicer.
