During his White House Press Briefing today, Sean Spicer not only compared Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to Germany’s Adolf Hitler, he said that he was worse than Hitler, presumably in an attempt to contrast President Trump’s actions favorably with, like, the whole of the Allied forces in World War II.

“You even have someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn’t sink to using chemical weapons [as Assad did],” Spicer said.

I didn’t see the press conference, but I assume that’s the moment when Sean Spicer wished he had a time machine so he could travel back 10 seconds and refrain from saying what may have been the dumbest statement ever made during a White House Press Conference.

And then, somehow, Sean Spicer made a terrible situation even worse.

“[Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way Assad is doing,” Spicer said.


Take it away, Twitter.

Update: He tried to clarify again.
