Sean Spicer Apologizes To The World
Yesterday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer came under major fire during a press conference when he seemingly made light of the Holocaust in comparison to what happened in Syria.
Spicer quickly backpedaled last night, appearing on the news to issue an apology.
He had the following to say:
“I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week, using chemical weapons and gas. And frankly I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust for which frankly there is no comparison. And for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that. Clearly, anybody who not just suffered in the Holocaust or is a descendant of anybody, frankly, you know, anyone who was offended by those comments, it’s not as I said, I’m not in any way standing by them. I was trying to draw a comparison for which there shouldn’t have been one. It was insensitive and inappropriate. So I’m not looking to quantify this in any way.”
While the initial comments were definitely offensive, at least he apologized.
