Since Sean Spicer has had to spend days apologizing for his gaffe where he came under fire for comparing Bashar al-Assad to Hitler, when he said that not even Hitler used chemical weapons. Well, liberals everywhere went nuts, cried about it, and forced Spicer to apologize repeatedly… forgetting entirely that just two years ago, their favorite MSNBC liberal host Chris Matthews said the same thing.
“We didn’t use [chemical weapons] in World War II, Hitler didn’t use them,” Matthews said at the time. “But we don’t use chemical weapons. That’s no deal.”
Matthews also suggested at some point that destruction of that country might be the only deterrent from using chemical weapons.
To Matthews credit however, he did come to Spicer’s defense, not forgetting that he found himself in the same hot water. He said Spicer was clearly “was talking about” the fact that Hitler “didn’t resort to [chemical weapons] in the battlefield.”
