I find nothing funny about the Press Secretary bungling holocaust history. Because I'm not sure they should get the benefit of the doubt.— Brian Schatz (@brianschatz) April 11, 2017
Talking to MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren, he said, "I made a mistake. There's no other way to say it, I got into a topic that I shouldn’t have and I screwed up."
He further added, "Your job as a spokesperson is to help amplify the president's actions and accomplishments, When you're distracting from that accomplishment and your job is to do the exact opposite, on a professional level it's disappointing because I think I've let the president down."
