Left-wing actress Ellen Barkin posed a question to President Donald Trump’s “dumb” supporters, asking them if they want a president “who is as dumb or dumber than you.”

The Ocean’s Thirteen actress — who has disparaged Trump’s supporters in the past, calling them the “most extreme right-wingers since the Nazis” — described Trump’s supporters as “dumb” and asked his base if they “want a dumb president?”

“Trump survivors, I mean supporters need to ask themselves only one question cuz the fact is irrefutable…Do you want a dumb president?” Ellen Barkin tweeted, immediately rephrasing her question and focusing on Trump’s spelling as proof of his purported lack of intelligence.

“By now, even you know you’re all pretty dumb so let me rephrase my question…Do you want a president who is as dumb or dumber than you? Think about it…,” she said, stressing that she is not talking about “big words like compulsory or obligatory.”

“The dude can’t spell. I’m not talking about big words like compulsory or obligatory but a single syllable word…moat. He spells it ‘moot’. But moot is already a ward. With a very different meaning. Can you see how something like this could crate a dangerous situation?” Barkin asked.

“Create. Crate. Get it?” the Animal Kingdom star said.

This is far from the first time Barkin has expressed her anti-Trump sentiments. The actress said last fall that Trump should be “removed” and “not just from office.”

The Tender Mercies star also called Trump’s base “the most extreme right wingers since the Nazis” in a rant following the first Democrat primary debate in June.

“If trump’s base, the most extreme right wingers since the Nazis, would just stop and look at the financial damage inflicted on them by the GOP, I believe they’d join the fight,” she wrote. “The GOP is asking their base a question right now…would you rather hate or eat? What’s the answer?”
