    How long do you think the Trump admin. will endure pressure from Jewish groups for Spicer to resign?

      He might have fired him already if Nancy Pelosi hadn't come out to demand it.

      Now that pretty much assures Trump won't do it.

        It was an attempt to make Assad look bad, really bad, to justify the attack and to justify the desire for regime change.

        The same thing happened in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. Things were exaggerated to the point of ridiculousness.

          Saying " literally Hitler" and "worse than Hitler" is copyrighted by Democrats, so no wonder their panties are all bunched up.
          The Dems have been saying Trump's supporters are neo-Nazis and white supremacists. But what if Spicer's apology is now causing them to pull their support? In denouncing Hitler, maybe Spicer outmanuevered the press hacks. How can they keep saying "Trump is literally Hitler"?

          What do I win?

            The Spinmeister of the Week Award for trying to somehow blame even THIS on the Dems and the "press".

                  What Spicer said changes nothing about the people in his administration being white supremacists.

                  Tell how the meaning was changed, how the elipses were used improperly and what the proper format should have been?

                  The use of elipses in this case definitely do not fall within the conventions for transcription of spoken language into text. The correct method would be to delete the stammers --the ums and ers-- in order to make it read as a coherent sentence.

                    You're still fixated on those elipses instead of the cluelessness of his statement.

                    And yet you probably beat that 57 state thing like a dead horse.

                  I'm not sure what more can reasonably be expected.

                  If you are unable to access the video evidence and unwilling to accept the testimony of others, how do you suggest we proceed?

                    That is what they did. They omitted the ums and ers and "you knows" and double-spoken "buts" and replaced them with ellipses in order to make it read more coherently. They left out the garbage and kept the meaning 100% intact. Exactly what ellipses are intended for. Could they have just edited out the garbage and not used ellipses? I suppose. But it wouldn't have made it read any more coherently if they did so. (Except perhaps to those looking to insert their OWN words and change the meaning THEMSELVES???)

                    OTHO, you accusing them of them of leaving out words in order to change the meaning when you didn't even so much as read or listen to the un-edited text? ....

                    ....What convention does THAT fall within?

                      For the record:

                      Hitler using gas to exterminate his presumed enemies does not equal the use of chemical weapons.

                      Reprehensible as it was, gassing was a conventional and accepted method for execution at the time. It is a stretch to equivocate the two.

                          No problem.

                          I assumed you were desperately, but fruitlessly searching for evidence to support your assertion that Spicers words were somehow diluted by elipses.
