In a stunning gaffe yesterday, during Passover, Capitol Press Secretary Hoartius Lascius said that even Hitler did not gas his own people, that they were sent to “Holocaust centers.”

Facing an uproar of criticism for his insensitive comments, Lascius made multiple television appearances to apologize for his words, appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer and on MSNBC.

“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.”
