During Sean Spicer's press conference on Wednesday, he quickly came under fire when he falsely claimed that Adolf Hitler didn't use chemical weapons during Word War 2 and the Holocaust. In the 24 hours since his blunder, the White House Press Secretary has been on the receiving end of vicious criticism, which continued from radio host Howard Stern.

Stern on Spicer

Earlier this month, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was accused of launching an attack on his own people, using chemical weapons to kill close to 100 civilian, which included taking the lives of innocent women and children in the process. In response, Donald Trump reacted after just 48 hours, instructing military leaders to fire close to 60 tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase.

The reaction to Trump's decision has been mixed at best, with his liberal critics predictably lashing out, while even many loyal supporters voiced their opposition. During a press briefing at the White House on Wednesday, Sean Spicer did his best to defend the president's response, but dug himself a deep hole while doing so. In an attempt to compare Assad to the former Nazi leader, Spicer said, "You had someone as despicable as Hitler who did not even sink to using chemical weapons," before later referring to concentration camps as "Holocaust centers." The negative reaction to Spicer caused him to quickly walk back his statement and issue a publicly apology, but not before the damage was done. As reported by The Hill on April 13, legendary radio host Howard Stern took a hard shot at the White House Press Secretary.

During his radio broadcast this week, Howard Stern, who is vocal about his Jewish heritage and support of Israel, was not pleased with how Sean Spicer handled himself. "When I heard this, I was like, Trump’s got to fire this guy," Stern said, before referring to Spicer's comments as "crazy." "Spicer managed to make Assad look good," he continued, before wondering, "how could you not know that Hitler marched his own people, Jews, gypsies, homosexuals...to concentration camps and turned on chemical gas?"

"The guy's just not informed," Howard Stern continued, before noting Sean Spicer was "kind of embarrassing." Stern went on to say that all the Donald Trump administration is good for is "ratings" and "comedy," before describing the White House as a "laughing stock." Not stopping there, the outspoken radio host continued to hammer Spicer, saying he speaks " fluent moron." While Stern and Trump have had a personal friendship dating back years, the host hasn't been shy about his voicing his political opposition to the former host of "The Apprentice," while coming out in favor of Hillary Clinton during the general election.
