Trump spokesman fail:'Not even Hitler used chemical weapons'

Gaffe-prone White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has caused further embarrassment to America by suggesting that Adolf Hitler didn't use chemical weapons. Hitler killed hundreds of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust using gas chambers at concentration camps. Spicer, comparing Hitler to Syria's Bashar Assad, said Hitler 'didn't even sink to using chemical weapons.' An April 4 chemical weapons attack in northern Syria left nearly 90 people dead, and the US has blamed Assad.Turkey's health minister said Tuesday that test results confirm sarin gas was used. Spicer later tried to clarify his statement, saying Hitler didn't use chemical weapons on his own people 'in the same way' as Assad.
