Bradley Whitford took another shot at President Donald Trump on Thursday, calling him a “racist, unpatriotic president.”

During his appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the 57-year-old actor — known for his role as Josh Lyman in the NBC political drama “The West Wing” — said he thinks people should speak out against the president when the host asked him about tweeting his support of the protest at the Los Angeles airport over Trump’s travel ban. (RELATED: ‘West Wing’ Actor Attacks President Trump And His Daughter)


“I do want to reiterate our president was a birther, which is racist and un-American,” Whitford said. “And we have a white nationalist working in the White House. And they have conflated refugees with terrorism.” (RELATED: Cast Of ‘West Wing’ Step In To Campaign For Hillary)

“And they are picking on transgender people and it’s not a joke,” he added. “And it’s very upsetting. I just think if you do have a racist, unpatriotic president you should speak out.”

This is not the first time this week the actor has slammed the president. On Wednesday, the actor went after the president, his chief strategist Steve Bannon, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner for “enabling hatred.”

“Your father is a racist birther. Steve Bannon an anti-Semitic opportunist. You and your husband are enabling hatred. Fuck your shoes,” Whitford tweeted.

His attack comes after Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, tweeted support for “houses of worship” following an anti-Semitic attack at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri this week. The attack at the cemetery left 170 headstones knocked over.
