James Woods slammed President Barack Obama for the ongoing government shutdown. The 66-year-old actor, who most recently appeared in Ray Donovan, wrote earlier this week that his opinions could cost him jobs in Hollywood.

As Hollywood Reporter notes, James Woods has attacked Obama in the past, but his tweets have intensified over the past few days. On Sunday night, Woods tweeted an image of the Amber Alert website, which was not available because of the government shutdown. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the President of the United States..." he wrote. The next day, James Woods called Obama a "liar" for promising to oppose increasing the debt limit.

Woods, who appeared in the action film White House Down, also referenced the government shutting down several memorials. Earlier this month, a group of World War II veterans got into the Washington D.C. memorial despite the barricades.

"This President is a true abomination," James Woods wrote. "To have barricaded the WW2 vets, but allow illegal aliens privilege..." He then linked to a USA Today story about the President allowing a pro-immigration at the National Mall despite the government shutdown.

After this tweet, a follower asked James Woods if he was worried about his job. After all, Hollywood directors may not exactly rush to hire an actor who is so outspoken against the government.

"I don't expect to work again," James Woods replied on Tuesday. "I think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic. My country first."

But James Woods did not just target President Obama. The actor swore that the Democratic Party in general would ruin the country.

"Sixteen tears of machine Democrats shredding the fabric of this Republic will toss the greatest democracy on the trash heap of world history," Woods wrote.

Unsurprisingly, James Woods has faced plenty of backlash from liberals. A Twitter user named @Periabo tweeted to the actor, "If the @RealJamesWoods doesn't like who the majority elected, there are numerous other nations in which he can move. #uniteblue #p2."

Woods replied, "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?"

James Woods previously criticized Barack Obama after the President compared himself to Trayvon Martin. The black teenager was killed in Florida by George Zimmerman, a night watchman who claimed he was acting in self-defense.  After Zimmerman was acquitted, Obama admitted that he could have been gunned down as a youth, too.

"There are probably very few African-American men who have not had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars," Obama said at the time.. "That happens to me — at least before I was a senator."

But James Woods was not convinced by this comment. "The only reason people lock their car doors when Obama walks by is they are afraid he'll tax them to death..." the actor tweeted in July.

James Woods has attacked others on Twitter, as well. Earlier this summer, the actor slammed Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner for putting a photo of Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of the magazine.

"Could that disgusting piece of sh*t Wenner have picked a prettier cover shot of his dreamboat homoerotic fantasy?" Woods wrote in part.  "What an a**hole..."
