Sean Spicer Just Said Not Even Hitler Used Chemical Weapons, Which Is Interesting Because The Holocaust

This is pretty graphic but for the sake of clarity let me remind you of Zyklon B.

“…the trade name of a cyanide-based pesticide invented in Germany in the early 1920s. It consisted of hydrogen cyanide, as well as a cautionary eye irritant and one of several absorbents such as diatomaceous earth. The product is infamous for its use by Nazi Germany during the Holocaust to murder approximately one million people in gas chambers installed at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Majdanek, and other extermination camps.

There’s really not much I need to add here. Just a strong reminder that as Press Secretary, when you’re representing the White House — the most powerful camp on earth — you need to be VERY careful about everything you say.

He tried to clear it up there with an explanation at the end, but come on Spicer. When you come in with the red hot take that someone’s not as bad as the worst person that ever lived, you better be damn sure about it.
