    I think Spicer is the worst press secretary I have ever seen. He is supposed to clean up the Administration's gaffes, not create ones of his own!

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/hitler-sink-chemical-weapons-spicer/story?id=46732616

    Whew, I'm so glad he cleared up that longstanding erronous reporting that he gassed Jews!

    So then when his gaffe is pointed out to him, he tries to dig himself out and says this:

    Holocaust Center? :rolleyes: Really Sean? He makes it sound so benign....like a place you go to shop or have a business meeting at. I like him for the comedy he provides, but if Trump were smart he would have replaced him already.

    It won't be long until the phrase "Taken out of context" appears.

    I don't think I've ever sat through a Sean Spicer briefing. I just can't do it to myself. I feel bad for the WH press pool that has to endure that sh#t show every day.

    Here's my favorite part:

    "But I'm saying that in the way that Assad used them where he went in towns, dropped them down - into the middle of towns - it was brought - so the use of it - I appreciate the clarification," Spicer said, before concluding, "That was not the intent."


    Yeah, he didn't drop them into towns, he rounded the towns people up first.

    The only explanation is that he makes everyone else around him look intelligent.

    It takes a special kind of person to be the spokesman for POTUS Trump.

    Next we'll hear it was Obama's fault that Spicer made that comment.

    I love that people and news organizations are trolling him over it. Jake Tapper just reminded Spicer that the Holocast museum was just a few blocks away from the White House if he wants to learn something. :D

    Then there's this:

    Indeed. Not a great day at all. In a short stint of many similar not so great days. He just doesn't seem cut out for the job. But then neither does his boss for his role in the White House.

    Spicer's been making some other interesting comments lately. On Monday, he talked about the US supporting regime change in Syria:

    The Trump administration has also signalled it could play a role in forcing regime change in the country, with Press Secretary Sean Spicer telling reporters that the US government “can’t imagine a stable and peaceful Syria with Assad in charge”.​

    Also, he added barrel bombs to chemical weapons as being off-limits for Assad, although I'm not entirely certain that Spicer actually knows what a barrel bomb is:

    "When you watch babies and children being gassed, and suffer under barrel bombs, you are instantaneously moved to action,” Mr Spicer told reporters.

    “This President has made it very clear that if those actions were to continue, further action would definitely be considered by the United States.”​

    maybe he is a Holocaust denier that would explain it. I would not doubt it.

    I guess it depends on the definition of chemical weapons but once you are talking about definitions you are generally losing.

    Simple......moron in chief doesn't want to be shown up as stupid so what better way than to put someone even dumber as your spokesman. Remember the movie "Dumb and Dumber"

    It was a chemical, and it was used as a weapon. Not much room for manoeuvre there.

    When I think of a chemical weapon I usually go to something that is weaponised.

    The only way the administration can distract people from Trump is to parade an even bigger buffoon in front of them daily. They've dredged up this little Quisling to take the heat - and I must say he appears to be surprising even himself at the level of stupidity to which he is capable.
