Yesterday, Spicer shocked the briefing room by suggesting that Adolf Hitler was a lesser evil than Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad when it came to using chemical weapons against his people.

"I need to hear from my congressman that these things are unacceptable", the woman said.

"I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no, he (Hitler) was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing", Spicer said. "I hope I showed that I understand that I did that and that sought people's forgiveness because I screwed up".

The longtime GOP spokesman said he had two takeaways from the experience.

In a statement to White House reporters, Spicer said in no way he was trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. "There was not. He brought them into the Holocaust center I understand that".
