James Woods is not hiding his distaste for President Barack Obama. The 66-year-old actor -- who starred as the head of the president's Secret Service detail, a man plotting to take down the president in this summer's "White House Down" -- expressed his opinions on Twitter this week in the wake of the ongoing government shutdown.
Woods spoke out on the government shutdown, placing the onus on Obama, while also criticizing the president for various other problems in the country, including gun violence and race relations. He continued to respond to both those who agreed with him and those who did not, calling Obama "a true abomination" and linking to articles about the shutdown. Woods said the remarks might keep him from being able to find a job in Hollywood, but that he put "[his] country first."
Take a look at Woods' tweets on the matter below.

@brucehallsports This is a decision under the jurisdiction of Commander-in-Chief. He's already decided he doesn't care.
This President is a true abomination. To have barricaded the WW2 vets, but allow illegal aliens privilege... http://t.co/OqQzp3VdKv
@mm77atl I don't expect to work again. I l think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic. My country first.
@Periabo Might be slightly difficult for you if those of us who didn't vote for Obama all left. Who would pay for all your stuff?
@johnnybx17 Yes, remember when Obama cried crocodile tears for the victims of chemical weapons in Syria? Never heard another word, did we?
One final word. I am truly saddened that the few Lib detractors are so ugly in their approach. I would welcome polite differing viewpoints.

@kerriGBfan I believe Barack Obama has done more for gun sales, less for race harmony and more damage to community than any president ever
