Anne Frank Center: Trump ‘must fire Sean Spicer now for engaging in Holocaust denial’

Published

on

The Anne Frank Center on Tuesday called for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to be fired after he asserted that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”

At Tuesday’s press briefing, President Donald Trump’s chief spokesperson had suggested that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s Sarin gas attacks on his own people were worse than the crimes committed by Hitler.

“Someone as despicable as Hitler didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer opined. He later acknowledged that gas chambers were used in concentration camps but insisted that Hitler “was not using his gas on his own people the same way Assad was.”

In a statement posted to Twitter, the Anne Frank Center said that President Trump “must fire Sean Spicer now for engaging in Holocaust denial.”

“On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial,” Anne Frank Center Executive Director Steven Goldstein lamented, “the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death.”

“Spicer’s statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary,” Goldstein added. “Sean Spicer lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once.”

Published

on

MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber on Thursday explained how acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney inadvertently owned himself during a press conference.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney speaking in the White House briefing room.

"Okay, let’s break this down. I’m show you exactly where Mulvaney basically owns himself, which is why since we’ve come on the air they put out a new statement walking this back. But what he said might be a much more accurate reflection of what happened than this new, lawyered statement. Listen closely to that key point from Mulvaney. Take a listen," he said, replaying part of the clip.

Giuliani has secret ‘log’ of his Ukraine contacts: Ex-Trump lawyer says he has ‘seen the book’

Published

on

Former Donald Trump lawyer Jay Goldberg on Thursday revealed that he has seen a secret "book" compiled by Rudy Giuliani logging his contracts in Ukraine.

During an interview with MSNBC's Ari Melber, Goldberg says the book as not yet been subpoenaed.

"I think Guiliani has been seduced by Mar-a-Lago, the lifestyle. It’s very heady to be on the plane, gold-plated," Goldberg said.

"Does Rudy Giuliani have any evidence or records that could resolve what he was doing with Ukraine?" Melber asked.

"Yes," Goldberg replied.

"There’s a book that he kept of all the contacts that he made while in the Ukraine," Goldberg revealed. "It hasn’t been subpoenaed thus far. It hasn’t come to light."
