Sean Spicer really blew it, but did apologize
The Yad Vashem Holocaust museum on Wednesday said that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments saying Nazi leader Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons “strengthen the hands of those whose goal is to distort history.”Spicer admits he screwed up. I'm glad he's taking responsibility, because what he said was a huge disfavor to everyone.
In a statement, Yad Vashem expressed “deep concern regarding the inaccurate and insensitive use of terms related to the Holocaust by the White House Press Secretary.”
“His statements imply a profound lack of knowledge of events of the Second World War, including the Holocaust.”
The Jerusalem-based memorial center also invited the press secretary to visit its website in order to “learn about the Holocaust and its period in history.”
Update: Alan Dershowitz is willing to forgive Spicer, and says the Democrats should move on, because they're only using this subject for the sake of attacking conservatives.
