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 ClintonJudge rules to not release Russia probe documents over Trump tweets Trump and advisers considering firing FBI director after election: WaPo Obama to campaign for Biden in Florida 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.”

Woods's tweets also come a month after the actor, who is also an outspoken critic of Democrats and a vocal backer of President Trump, was locked out of his Twitter account for violating the social media platform’s rules.
