Actor James Woods reportedly deleted a tweet that called the "potential explosive devices" the Secret Service said it found in mail sent to former Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonFormer Obama adviser Plouffe predicts 'historical level' of turnout by Trump supporters Poll: More Republican voters think party is more united than Democratic voters Whoopi Goldberg presses Sanders: 'Why are you still in the race?' MORE in New York on Wednesday an "obvious political stunt."

In the since-deleted tweet, the 71-year-old actor, who was briefly suspended from Twitter last month, dismissed the incident as an “an obvious political stunt” and wrote that no one cares enough about the Clinton family to send them explosives.


“Who gives a rat’s ass about the #Clintons enough to do this?” Woods tweeted, according to media reports. “Obvious political stunt …”

The post featured a tweet from The Associated Press reporting on the potential explosive devices discovered at the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York.

“That people would seriously suggest such an act could be a 'false flag' stunt is inappropriate,” Woods continued in a separate tweet, which remains up. “It is sad, however, that Democrat #mob behavior of late could prompt one to believe such a thing possible.”
