In the video, the president criticizes former President George W. Bush in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, saying he "only saw the people from a window of an airplane instead of down here on the ground trying to provide comfort and aide."

In Alley's tweet, she wrote: "Or on a golf course in Martha's Vineyard instead of in Louisiana."

"My point is..Do u think USA wants to C him playing golf while Louisiana is 20 feet under water & people R dying?" she said in another tweet.

"I thought Bush waited too long also! I was in Katrina on day 5 & I'm just a gorgeous actress :) THEY need HELP! I didn't need an invitation."

The president will visit the site of intense flooding in Louisiana next week as part of the ongoing federal response to the natural disaster.

Obama has faced criticism over the past week for not visiting sooner and for instead continuing his annual summer vacation.

Trump visited the state last week.
