A “Scandal” actor and former “West Wing” star is lashing out at voters who cast their ballots for President Trump, calling them “stupid.”

Josh Malina, who played Will Bailey, a fictional vice president’s chief of staff, on the NBC political drama, wrote to his more than 230,000 Twitter followers on Tuesday:


The tweet came in response to Trump ratcheting up nuclear tensions with North Korea, warning the nation would face "fire and fury" like the world has never seen if it continues to threaten the U.S.

Malina, who plays Attorney General David Rosen on ABC’s “Scandal,” was one of several “West Wing” cast members who reunited last year to hit the campaign trail for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGOP Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene referred to Parkland school shooting as 'false flag' event on Facebook Senators vet Mayorkas to take lead at DHS CNN poll: Melania Trump leaving office as least popular first lady ever MORE.

A frequent Trump critic on Twitter, 51-year-old Malina was reportedly asked in January whether his outspoken social media remarks could harm “Scandal.”

“One of the great joys of being criminally under-rated as an actor,” he said, according to Deadline, is he can exist “below the radar” on the internet.
