Read James Woods' Rant Slamming President Obama

He calls the Oregon shooting a "hate crime against Christians"

Liz Raftery

Actor James Woods went on a Twitter rant against President Obama over the weekend, in the wake of the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

Nine people were killed in the massacre after Chris Harper Mercer, 26, opened fire at the school on Thursday afternoon. Mercer, who later committed suicide, reportedly asked many of the victims whether they were Christian before shooting them.

On Friday, Woods, 68, referred to the shooting as a "hate crime massacre of Christians," saying the incident had "finally silence[d] Obama."

Obama gave an incendiary speech on Friday about the shooting, saying he was outraged that mass shootings have become "routine" in America. It's unclear whether Woods' tweet came before or after the president's speech, but Woods didn't stop there.

On Saturday, the Conservative actor warned that Obama's "death grip on America" will leave 100 million citizens unemployed.
