An appalling euphemism


It appears that Sean Spicer, Trump’s press mouthpiece, has sunk to new lows in his briefings.

Spicer yesterday used the phrase ‘the Holocaust center’, when what he was referring to was the Nazi concentration camps such as Dachau and Auschwitz where millions were exterminated. Indeed these places are synonymous with death, muder and depravity and are monuments of man’s inhumanity to man.

‘The Holocaust center’ sounds quite innocuous. To trivialise the sufferings of millions in the camps with the expression ‘the Holocaust center’ is immoral and raises yet again the question as to whether Trump and his acolytes are anti-semites.

Spicer is a disgrace, even the Saturday Night Live writers had not come up with that phrase.
