No one is safe from the Twitter wrath of Amanda Bynes -- not even the commander in chief. 

In recent months, the 27-year-old starlet has taken to Twitter to announce who she deems unattractive. Victims have included rapper Drake (depending on the day), gossip blogger Perez Hilton and her parents, but on Monday, Bynes found new targets, tweeting, "Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are ugly!" 

Is this Bynes' first step into the political field? Word's still out on whether she agrees with former President George W. Bush, who recently applauded President Obama's efforts on counterterrorism and immigration reform.

If the actress' ex-publicists allegations that her apparent downward spiral is nothing but a stunt, attacking the head of the country was probably a way to get more time in the spotlight. Now that her Nickelodeon days are in the rearview mirror, Bynes seems to hold onto the notion that no press is bad press.
