A different day, a different Sean Spicer travesty.

In a press conference Tuesday, the White House spokesperson claimed that Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” in an attempt to justify the U.S. retaliation against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for chemical attacks. Then, in an effort, to defend his statements, Spicer called concentration camps "Holocaust centers." On cue, Twitter had some words for him.


There was disbelief:

Others commented with satire, perhaps a laugh to keep from crying moment.

While others couldn't get past the "Holocaust centers" categorization.

As a rule of thumb:

And in an attempt to reach for anything positive in the situation, one Twitter user reminds us that no matter how bad a day you're having, Sean Spicer's is much, much worse.
