Howard Stern Blasts Sean Spicer For Speaking ‘Fluent Moron’ About Holocaust

Outspoken radio host Howard Stern has some choice words for Sean Spicer, slicing and dicing the White House press secretary for his comments earlier this week about the Holocaust.

“The guy’s just not informed, and it’s kind of embarrassing — it’s just embarrassing. But it’s entertaining as hell,” Stern said Wednesday on his SiriusXM program, adding that President Trump’s aide is speaking “fluent moron.”

“If you’re looking for ratings and you’re looking for comedy, there’s nothing better than this,” he continued. “But if I’m President Trump, I’m like, well Jesus Christ, we’re a laughingstock.”

Spicer got into trouble on Tuesday when, in an attempt to argue that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was worse than Nazi Germany’s Adolf Hitler, he falsely asserted that the German leader never used chemical weapons.

A crush of reporters, pundits, and academics pointed out that, in fact, Hitler employed the deadly Zyklon B gas to kill more than one million of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust. Spicer apologized soon after making his initial remarks.
