Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer has done it now. During a White House press briefing in which the press secretary was trying to characterize Syrian President Bashar Assad and his connection with President TrumPutin’s play cousin Mother Russia, Spicy Facts decided to invoke Adolf Hitler’s name.

Even Hitler “didn’t sink to using chemical weapons” during World War II, Spicy Facts said, CNN reports.


Spicy Facts was then asked by a reporter to clarify his comments, to which Spicer added: “I think when you come to sarin gas, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”

Umm, Spicy, this is starting to sound like an alternative fact.

Hitler may not have used sarin gas on his people—not sure what that made the Jews—but using Hitler’s “restraint” as a basis for anything just sounds really off and weird, which is how I feel about the entire administration. Let’s be clear: Saying that even Hitler didn’t like loofah scrubs doesn’t make Hitler a decent person because, oh, I don’t know, he killed some 11 million people and was single-handedly responsible for the deaths of 6 million Jews.


And, uh, Spicy Facts is starting to sound more and more incompetent, and he’s starting to sound like a Holocaust denier and a deplorable.

After reporters mentioned the Holocaust as an example of, I don’t know, mass chemical-weapons use, Spicy Facts had this brilliant point to clarify the difference: “But in the way that Assad used them, where he went into towns and dropped them down to innocent in the middle of towns. I appreciate the clarification; that was not the intent.”


Umm, Spicy, what did the Jews do to make them “guilty,” since they weren’t “innocent”? But Spicy Facts was right about one thing: Hitler didn’t go into towns; great point. Hitler did not go into towns and kill people. Nope, he just rounded them up and killed people in concentration camps, but Spicy Facts is right—he did not go into towns with chemical gas, so thanks for clearing that up.

Also, resign and go back to your old job as a bunny.
