U.S. Press Secretary Sean Spicer made some huge mistakes. Bigly. But calling concentration camps "Holocaust centers" and saying Hitler didn't use chemical weapons--well, not on his own people (German Jews were an exception, apparently) is less of a slip up and more antisemitism. I mean, it's bad enough when the Anne Frank Center demanded someone fire Spencer--but it was far from the only firing demand.

But hey, at least there might be hope for Spicer's career.
Don't worry abt getting fired Sean Spicer. If you can make Hitler look good, you can do miracles for United. They'll be happy to hire you!-- Kurious Karrie (@kuriouskarrie) April 11, 2017
OK, but you know it's bad when God had something to say about it.
