Title: Spicer: I 'clearly meant Orlando' when I talked about Atlanta attack

White House press secretary Sean Spicer says he misspoke when he talked about an attack in Atlanta during interviews defending the president's travel ban.

In an email to ABC News, Spicer said he "clearly meant Orlando" when he said Atlanta.

Spicer over a period of two days pointed to Atlanta several times in defending the president's order barring refugees and people from seven predominately Muslim countries from entering the U.S.

On Jan. 29, Spicer first mentioned Atlanta during an interview on ABC's "The View" as a city that had been attacked by terrorists, The Daily Beast first reported.

"What do we say to the family who loses somebody over a terroristic [sic] -- to whether it's Atlanta or San Bernardino or the Boston bomber?" Spicer said during the appearance.

"Those people, each of whom had gone out to a country and then come back."

In an appearance the next day on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Spicer again invoked Atlanta, saying there have been too many terrorist attacks, "whether you're talking about San Bernardino, Atlanta."

He mentioned Atlanta a third time during a press briefing later that day to defend the president's travel ban.

"We're reviewing the entire process over this period of time to make sure that we do this right," Spicer said. "But I don't think you have to look any further than the families of the Boston Marathon, in Atlanta, in San Bernardino to ask if we can go further."

Spicer in his clarification to ABC News said he was referring to the Orlando terrorist attack in June, when nearly 50 people were killed after a gunman stormed a nightclub.

Omar Mateen, the gunman in the Orlando attack, was a U.S. citizen born in New York to Afghan parents.

Spicer's reference comes after the president's top aide Kellyanne Conway mistakenly referred to the "Bowling Green massacre," a terrorist attack that never happened. Conway later said she had misspoken.

Spicer LIED! He LIED! There was no Atlanta attack.

As with Kellyanne Conway, make this headline news on all the major networks! Assure the citizens of of of Atlanta that there was no attack and that Spicer LIED!

There was that bombing at the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996. An anti-abortion guy did that one and several more before they finally caught him.

Not that I care much, but Orlando and Atlanta are phonetically similar, somewhat.

The liberals are trying hard to straight up discredit anyone in this administration rather than take to heart the meaning of the message. Anyone with half a mind could understand that they were trying to list reasons to support the halting of immigrants from certain countries.

There is no hope of ever redeeming the Left if this is to be the status quo.

I could be wrong but i find it hard to believe that a hero who took out some murders and accessories to murder would bomb the olympics.

I was merely recalling the only similar case I knew of, the only famous bombing in Atlanta in the last few decades.

Nothing wrong with what you recalled.
