GOP Rep. Mike Coffman says Sean Spicer 'needs to go'

On Tuesday, Spicer shocked the White House briefing room by suggesting that Adolf Hitler was the lesser of two evils when compared to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad when it came to using chemical weapons on their own people.

The White House said Thursday that President Trump's reversal on China's status as a currency manipulator should be viewed as an effort to fight for American workers.

Spicer said that he knew Hitler had used gas chambers during the holocaust and clarified that he should "stayed focused" on Syria and Assad's brutality. When one asked about Spicer's claim earlier this week that "Hitler didn't use gas on his own people", Coffman told the crowd Spicer "needs to go".

"Spicer made a bad mistake", the GOP lawmaker said at a townhall style meeting in Colorado on Wednesday.

"Horrible example. I believe he appropiately apologized, but it's really going to be up to the President".

"I don't think he's serving this President very well", said Rep. Mike Coffman on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" Thursday.

'But if I'm President Trump, I'm like, well Jesus Christ, we're a laughingstock'.

Activist Elliott pushed overhaul of BHP Billiton
The bulk of Elliott's BHP Billiton shareholding is in the United Kingdom -listed arm, in which it holds a stake of 4.1 per cent. The Company is a producer of various commodities, including iron ore, metallurgical coal, copper and uranium.

The weird statement ignored the Nazi madman's use of toxic gas to exterminate millions of Jews. "So you have to, if you are Russian Federation, ask yourself is this a country and a regime that you want to align yourself with". He brought them into the Holocaust centers.

Several times afterward, he apologized for the comments, which had been made during the Jewish holiday Passover.

"He needs to go", Coffman said.

Coffman called Spicer's remarks and delivery "incompetent".

Speaking with constituents at a rowdy town hall event Wednesday evening, Coffman faced vocal criticism from constituents who said they wanted him to push back against Trump.

But he held no bars about calling for Spicer's dismissal.
