Months ago, Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca posited that Donald Trump was gaslighting America, by routinely saying and doing things aimed at making us all question our own sanity. Today was yet another unfortunate example of just how prescient her column has turned out to be. Sean Spicer, who is always performing for an audience of one during his briefings, took to the podium today and began partially defending Adolf Hilter while denying a key aspect of the Holocaust. And he did it on Passover.

Spicer was so repulsively off the rails today that his only defense may be his own incompetence. He routinely misspeaks, has trouble completing a coherent sentence, botches the names of world leaders on a regular basis, and is wholly unsuited for a job whose one requirement is competent communication. To that end, after a week of getting the name of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad wrong, Spicer shortened it to just “Assad” today and still managed to get it wrong in two different ways.

But is anyone really going to believe that even stammering Sean Spicer was merely tongue tied today when he referred to Hitler’s concentration camps as “Holocaust Centers”? Is anyone buying that Spicer merely forgot his history today when he tried to make the case against Assad by insisting that Hitler never gassed anyone? Just what did Spicer think was going on at those Holocaust Centers?


Let’s not forget that Sean Spicer, who is thoroughly incompetent at his job, still has it for one reason and one reason alone: he’s willing to go out there each day and say whatever asinine thing Donald Trump tells him to say. And today, during Passover, Trump and Spicer tried to gaslight America by making the case that Adolf Hitler wasn’t so bad to the Jews after all. Based on their track record, I refuse to believe it wasn’t on purpose.
