“You had someone who was despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,”
White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer 4/11/17
Trump promised the best and the brightest. Well lets check this one out.
The Holocaust was the systematic annihilation of six million Jews by the Nazi regime during World War 2. In 1933 approximately nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be occupied by Germany during the war. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed.
So, what method did Hitler use to kill 5.967 million innocent souls.
The German extermination camps or death camps were designed and built by Nazi Germany during World War II (1939–45) to systematically kill millions of Jews, Slavs, Communists, and others whom the Nazis considered “Untermenschen“, primarily by gassing, but also in mass executions and through extreme work under starvation conditions.
Either Spicer is ignorant of history or he is just plain stupid. As the spokesperson representing the POTUS he is an unmitigated disaster. As uninformed as Trump is in many ways he certainly is aware of the history of the Holocaust.
Here is what Nancy Pelosi had to say in her statement regarding Spicer’s ignorance:
“While Jewish families across America celebrate Passover, the chief spokesman of this White House is downplaying the horror of the Holocaust.
“Sean Spicer must be fired, and the President must immediately disavow his spokesman’s statements. Either he is speaking for the President, or the President should have known better than to hire him.”
On this Pelosi is absolutely correct. Trump should have knwn better than to hire and now he must fire.
