Trump aide offers fresh apology over Hitler reference

21 April 2017

Spicer made the original comment while trying to shame Russian Federation for its alliance with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

He noted that Trump had bombed a Syrian air base in a forceful response to chemical weapons use by Assad's government and said Trump's hosting of Chinese President Xi Jinping last week had produced "tremendous progress".

News broke that the White House Press Secretary dressed as the Easter Bunny during the Bush administration, giving fodder for comedians like Jimmy Kimmel.

The rival New York Post did not address Spicer's gaffe with its Wednesday cover, instead focusing on President Trump's vow that "we're not going into Syria".

"I think most polar scientists have considered water moving across the surface of Antarctica to be extremely rare". If the ice sheet melts, it will raise sea levels by tens of feet, flooding coastal cities around the globe.

Spicer apologized Tuesday after saying Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons" during World War II in an effort to shame Russia's alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his use of chemical weapons.

Mr Spicer issued an apology for his remarks about Hitler and Assad on CNN shortly after the initial comments.

"I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no, he (Hitler) was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing", Spicer said.

Following his comments Tuesday, The Anne Frank Center tweeted: "MUST FIRE SEAN SPICER NOW FOR ENGAGING IN HOLOCAUST DENIAL". "It was a mistake to do that".

Formal sentencing is expected later this week. "If he was sentenced to 60 years, he probably could have died in jail". Michael Burnside was called by lawyers for Cardell Hayes , convicted of manslaughter previous year in Smith's death.

When asked to clarify his remarks, he stumbled again by referring to concentration camps as "Holocaust centers".

Parallels have been drawn between the comments made by Mr Spicer on Tuesday and those expressed on Fox Business on Monday. "There was clearly. I understand your point, thank you".

The comments drew sharp criticism on social media and elsewhere for overlooking the fact that the Nazis killed millions of Jews and others in gas chambers.

The comparison to the Second World War appeared to be part of a message the administration was trying to deliver as it explains its tactics in Syria.
