A Texas congressman is taking President Obama to task for skipping the unity march Sunday in Paris, referencing Hitler’s trip to Paris to mark the 1940 Nazi invasion of France.
“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,” Rep. Randy Weber (R-Tex.) tweeted late Monday.
Weber, who now fills the House seat vacated by Rep. Ron Paul, was among the critics faulting Obama for not sending a high-level official to Paris to join world leaders who showed their support after the terrorist shootings last week. The U.S. Ambassador to France represented the U.S. at the event, attended by more than 40 heads of state.
