Spicer needs to go

President Donald Trump would be doing himself and our country a favor by removing Sean Spicer as his press secretary. Mr. Spicer's comments in comparing the Holocaust to Bashar Assad's use of poisonous gas as an equal or lesser act of unmitigated terror expose his lack of knowledge and possibly his bias ("Alternative fact of the week: 'Holocaust centers,'" April 13).

His commentary at the press briefing this past Tuesday is consistent with the hidden anti-Semitism by our government leadership during World War II that allowed genocide to continue unabated even though officials were aware of these catastrophic events.

There is a very informative book that reveals what our political leadership knew as the genocide of 6 million Jews and other selected groups was in full swing. The documentary is "1944, FDR and the Year That Changed History" by Jay Winik.
