Things like this should probably no longer be a surprise.
According to different sources, U.S. Representative Randy Weber, a Republican from Texas, has drawn hefty criticism and some praise after he compared President Barack Obama’s decision not to attend a rally in Paris to Adolf Hitler’s visit to the city after the Nazis invaded.
Weber, known for his anti-Obama rhetoric, took to Twitter on Monday: “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.”
According to Wikipedia, Randy Weber has represented Texas’ 14th congressional district since 2013, succeeding Ron Paul. He was a member of the Texas House of Representatives, representing the 29th district. He is a member of the Republican Party.
Updated to add: Mr. Weber has reportedly since apologized.
