‘You assh*le’: Internet stunned as Spicer says Trump ‘went out of his way’ to recognize Holocaust

President Donald Trump’s statement on Holocaust Memorial Day last week drew heavy fire from critics — including the Republican Jewish Coalition — because it failed to specifically mention the suffering of Jews under Nazi Germany.

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer defended the administration’s statement, and slammed critics for “nitpicking” it.

 

“The president went out of his way to recognize the Holocaust,” a frustrated Spicer said.
