Fleischer, Davis: 'Anti-Semitic' Thomas Should Be Fired

Sunday, 06 Jun 2010 09:19 PM

Two former White House spokesmen for George W. Bush and Bill Clinton say it's time for Hearst reporter Helen Thomas to be fired after she told a rabbi that Israelis should "get the hell out of Palestine."

Lanny Davis, former special counsel to and White House spokesman for President Bill Clinton, issued a statement on Sunday saying Thomas, who he used to consider a close friend, "has showed herself to be an anti-Semitic bigot," according to Fox News.

If Thomas isn’t fired, at the very least she should have her press credentials revoked, said Ari Fleischer, President George W. Bush's press secretary. He led off the call in an e-mail Friday to the Huffington Post saying Thomas' comments amount to "religious cleansing."

"She should lose her job over this," Fleischer reportedly wrote. "As someone who is Jewish, and as someone who worked with her and used to like her, I find this appalling."
