Congressman Randy Weber Apologizes for Tweet Comparing President Obama to Hitler

An offense tweet gets deleted.

"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," the tweet read.

The congressman misspelled Hitler’s first name in the tweet, which has since been deleted.

In the statement, Weber added that his reference to Hitler was meant to "represent the face of evil that still exists in the world today" and did not intend to compare Hitler to the president.

“I think it’s fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” Earnest told reporters.
