After news broke today of the latest Sean Spicer “gaffe” regarding Hitler supposedly not having used chemical weapons, I am ready to call it. I hereby declare Mackintosh’s Law*:
Any time a member of the Trump Administration opens their mouth on the subject of the Holocaust … really, any time he or she (mostly he) even thinks about the Holocaust … they are about the step into the middle of a self-created ahistorical and antisemitic political shitstorm.
*Actually, let’s called it First Mackintosh’s Law. I reserve the right to declare more “laws” in the future. Mike Godwin was really onto something. Declaring “laws” is super fun. Watch this space.
