Did Pepsi, United Airlines, and Sean Spicer make a bet over the last week on who could embarrass themselves the most?
The often combative and gaffe-prone White House Press Secretary was attempting to defend President Trump’s position on Syria when he compared Bashar Al-Assad to Adolf Hitler, claiming the Syrian dictator is as bad as the Nazi leader. To make things worse, he then made the statement that at least Hitler never gassed his people.
“You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said to reporters.
It was such odd a statement that Spicer became the number one trending topic on Twitter.

According to Sean Spicer, Nazis used "Holocaust Centers" & Hitler didn't gas his own people like Assad.— Mike P Williams (@Mike_P_Williams) April 11, 2017
He should lose his job over this.
This is just the latest of Spicer’s many gaffes, from calling Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the wrong name (he said “Joe”) and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull (he said “Trumball”) to claiming there was a terrorist attack in Atlanta on three different occasions (he meant to say Orlando.)
Spicer’s tenure has been marked by an endless series of humiliating one-liners that are worthy of the Melissa McCarthy parody on Saturday Night Live. For the sake of Trump’s agenda, Spicer needs to be fired.
Enough is enough, call Laura Ingraham or Jason Miller — anyone who’s not going to embarrass President Trump on a daily basis.
