Germany To Sean Spicer: ‘Nothing Good’ Comes From Nazi Comparisons
Germany has some pretty obvious advice for Sean Spicer: Don’t go there.
The spokesperson for Chancellor Angela Merkel joined the chorus denouncing the White House press secretary for his comments on Hitler and chemical weapons, saying it’s never smart to make Nazi comparisons.
“Any comparison of current situations with Nazi crimes leads to nothing good,” Steffen Seibert said Wednesday, noting that he was reiterating the German government’s longstanding position, according to The Associated Press.
Spicer caused an uproar Tuesday when he said Hitler did not use chemical weapons during World War II, ignoring the Nazi government’s gassing of millions of Jews during the Holocaust.
