WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Randy Weber from Pearland, Texas is apologizing for a tweet he issued about President Obama not attending the Unity March in Paris. The tweet in question said, "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 refers to the Nazi army capturing Paris in World War II.

Weber's office officially apologized for the tweet, saying, "It was not my intention... to compare the president to Adolf Hitler. The mention of Hitler was meant to represent the face of evil that still exists in the world today."

Weber has a history of offensive opinions and misspellings on Twitter. Last year, he called Obama a "socialistic dictator" and a "kommandant-in-chef."
