White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s numerous blunders related to Adolf Hitler’s use of chemical weapons are like something out of an episode of HBO’s Veep — and that’s according to the woman who stars in the show.
Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus reacted to Spicer’s disastrous Holocaust gaffes by tweeting out a video that mashed up Spicer’s remarks with the ending credits of Veep — and she said that it really “feels like an Emmy winning episode to me.”
The video starts out with a Veep-like unsteady camera shot of the White House, then cuts to Spicer talking about how Hitler never used chemical weapons during World War II, as credits from the show roll by beside him. It then splices in scenes from the actual show, before cutting back to Spicer saying that he meant to say that Hitler never used chemical weapons “on his own people.”
The video then cuts to Louis-Dreyfus’s character on Veep making comical mumbling sounds.
Watch the full video below.

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.
The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."
There's little mystery about how the night will go down.
Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.
Florida man’s own family blasts him after he was arrested for racist threats: ‘This isn’t how we were raised’
After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
Trump accuses newspaper of ‘virtual act of treason’ for reporting on a story that made him look awful
President Donald Trump attacked an American newspaper for reporting a story that made him look bad.
"Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. (sic) This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country ... also, not true," the commander-in-chief tweeted on Saturday evening.
"Anything goes with our corrupt news media today," Trump argued.
"They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence," he continued.
