Hollywood director Joss Whedon released a series of tweets over a span of days, in which he attacked President Donald Trump and wrote a poem professing how he misses the days when Barack Obama was president.

The Avengers director began his social media meltdown on Tuesday, tweeting a photo of House Speaker Paul Ryan with blood pouring from his mouth.

Whedon captioned the tweet, saying, “not pictured: the blood on his hands.”

Whedon’s Ryan-bashing tweet came as the House passed its sweeping tax cut bill.

On Wednesday, the self-described feminist lashed out at Trump over his so-called campaign to “expunge Obama’s legacy.”

“History will remember President Obama as better than he was because of YOU, ,” Whedon tweeted at Trump. “Your desperate need to expunge Obama’s legacy has helped ensure it. This makes me laugh when little else does.”

Then, Whedon waxed poetic, saying, “*Trump takes office * I miss Obama *tax plan passes* I miss George III.”

Hours later, Whedon urged his two hundred thousand-plus Twitter followers to listen to anti-Trump rapper Eminem’s song “Like Home,” on which the Grammy-winner calls the president a Nazi.

“I’ll just be over here playing “Like Home” on repeat till 2019, you guys have fun (srsly, if u need to b inspired/reinvigorated…)    ,” Whedon tweeted.

Whedon, of course, is no stranger to social media meltdowns, taking to Twitter earlier this year he said: “I want a rhino to fuck Speaker Paul Ryan to death.”

In August, a popular Whedon fan website, “Whedonesque,” announced news that it be shutting down operations after 15 years after the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator’s ex-wife, Kai Cole, accused him of having “multiple affairs” with “his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends.”
