'Hitler didn't sink to using chemical weapons': Trump spokesman Sean Spicer's astonishing blunder as he claims Syria's Bashar al-Assad is WORSE than the Nazis in a string of press conference gaffes
Hitler primarily used Zyklon B, a powerful cyanide gas, to exterminate Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, priests, political dissidents and other enemies of the state. Describing that genocide, Sean Spicer declared Tuesday that Hitler 'was not using the gas on his own people.' Reporters were aghast, and Spicer was left sputtering a clarification as millions of Jews worldwide celebrated Passover. Describing that historical horror, Spicer declared that Hitler 'was not using the gas on his own people.' Within an hour the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, a group linked loosely with the famed girl diarist, demanded Spicer's removal as it claimed he 'engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable.' Assad deployed sarin gas, a chemical nerve toxin, against Syrian civilians last week in the latest atrocity to mar the Middle Eastern country's lengthy civil war.

Millionaire tycoon loses legal fight to stop his wife walking away with half of his $280million fortune - despite claiming he made a 'special contribution' while she stayed at home
Randy Work, 50, pictured, a former executive in Texas-based private equity firm Lone Star, said it is wrong that his ex Mandy Gray, 48, should get the same as him when he made all the money.
