Lawmaker compares Obama to Hitler in tweet on Paris attack

Washington: A US congressman with a history of making inflammatory remarks is drawing criticism for comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler in a tweet related to the terror attack in Paris.

Republican Rep. Randy Weber's Twitter account yesterday night said even Hitler "thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris."

The tweet referred to the German leader's visit to the vanquished city after his troops invaded in World War II, and to Obama's failure to join dozens of world leaders at an anti-terror march through Paris on Sunday.

Democratic Rep. Steve Israel denounced the tweet as "vile," saying Weber was "desecrating the victims of the Holocaust to make a political point."

In a tweet last year Weber called Obama a "Socialistic dictator."
