Sean Spicer is the infinite gaffe machine for the Trump administration. As soon as one foot leaves his mouth, another one is readily available to take its place. Today, he may have even bested United Airlines’ public relations failures.
Following a rough outing in the White House Press Briefing room, Spicer joined Wolf Blitzer on CNN to apologize for making a Hitler comparison when discussing the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
However, instead of just apologizing for his statement (or misstatement), he created another blunder.
“It was my blunder, as you put it correctly,” Spicer said to Blitzer. “And I came out to make sure that we stay focused on what the president is doing, and his decisive action. I needed to make sure that I clarified, and not with, in any way shape or form, any more of a distraction from the president’s decisive action in Syria, and the attempts that he is making to destabilize the region and root out ISIS out of Syria.”
Yes, Spicer just accused President Trump, his boss, of trying to “destabilize” Syria.
Spicer was apologizing for inaccurately stating that Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” Millions of Jews were executed in extermination camps during the Holocaust using “gas vans” and “showers.”
One must ask themselves, does Spicer know that Trump is the president and not Obama?
