Republican Congressman Makes Weird Hitler-Obama Analogy

For all the wrong reasons.

Posted on

Randy Weber is a Congressman from Texas who tweeted Monday that he was upset about President Obama not attending the Paris anti-terrorism march, using a strange analogy to Hitler invading France to make his point.

Even Adolph Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn't do it for right reasons

Weber previously called President Obama the "Kommandant-In-Chef" in a tweet about the State of the Union last year. He misspelled chief as "chef."

The White House expressed regret Monday about not having a more senior official than the U.S. ambassador to France attend the march.

"I think it's fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there," spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday.
