You need not wonder what James Woods thinks of President Obama, or the President’s refugee policy; he’ll tell you without even asking.
“Once Upon a Time in America” actor and outspoken conservative Woods has once again made his opinion on the matters of the day known, this time trashing Obama for his apparent “shocking failure to lead.”
The assessment came as Woods reflected on the current debate over allowing Syrian refugees into the United States.
Woods linked to an article in which Obama mocked those calling for a moratorium on allowing Syrians into America.
“Apparently, they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion,” Obama said during a press conference in Manila. “First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about 3-year-old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.”
Woods offered his own zinger in response.
“The only widows and orphans on our minds, Sir, are the ones created by your shocking failure to lead,” Woods wrote.
Ouch. Though, to be fair, Woods did call Obama “Sir.” Which is nice.
Numerous politicians have called for Obama to deny 10,000 Syrian refugees entry into the country, as he reportedly plans to do, following the deadly attacks in Paris last week that left more than 100 dead.
