Samuel L. Jackson hasn't pussyfooted around his support for President Barack Obama. On Tuesday night, before the announcement of Obama's victory over GOP contender Mitt Romney was made, the actor ripped Republicans in a mini Twitter rant.

Jackson took to Twitter in the final minutes of the presidential election to blast the GOP nominee, Dick Cheney and other Republicans. He told Twitter users who were "hyperventilatin'" over a possible Romney loss to go "choke."


Samuel L. Jackson
A deep sigh of relief before celebration! Congratulations are in order for all who went out & worked & kept the faith & WOULD NOT BE DENIED!

Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson
Cheney wouldn't Stand! Mitt won't tap out! Satan & his Spawn some die hard lil'Fukkahz!!

In 2008, Jackson went on a rant about how race influenced his vote for Obama, Politico notes.

“I voted for Barack because he was black. ’Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them,” the actor told Ebony magazine. “That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama’s] message didn’t mean [bleep] to me."

The "Pulp Fiction" actor has long been an Obama supporter.

In a September video aptly titled "Wake the F**k Up," Jackson demanded voters pay attention, learn the issues and vote for Obama. The clip, which parodies Jackson's oration of the children's book "Go the F**k To Sleep", shows the 63-year-old actor enter the homes of seniors and young people to explain to them (in NSFW language) why a vote for Obama is paramount.

On Tuesday night, Republican supporter Donald Trump also went on a Twitter tear. The real estate mogul blasted Obama's victory, calling the election a "total sham and a travesty" and "disaster for a democracy."

Romney conceded to Obama at around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning, even though television networks called an Obama win around 11 p.m., Fox News notes. He phoned the president to congratulate him on his victory.
