As with his friend and mini-series Holocaust co-star, Michael Moriarty, whose columns frequently appear in the Conservative Base, James Woods is an actor, a conservative and a fierce supporter of President Donald Trump.
Conservative actor James Woods’ most well known roles are Videodrome, Once Upon a Time in America, Casino, and Contact. Additionally, Woods has also been nominated for two Academy Awards for the Best Actor category for Salvador and for the Best Supporting Actor category for Ghosts of Mississippi. He is the recipient of three Emmy Awards for the television movies Promise and My Name Is Bill W.and the animated series Hercules. Promise additionally brought him a Golden Globe Award. He starred in the mini-series Holocaust opposite both award-winning actors Meryl Streep and Michael Moriarty.
On television, he is known for portraying the lead character in Shark (2006–08) and for voice-acting as himself on eight episodes of Family Guy, as well as on one episode of The Simpsons. He has also voice acted as Mike Toreno in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Hades in the Hercules film & TV series, and the Kingdom Hearts series.
The unemployment level may be at an 18-year low, but it’s not exactly like the Democrats are giving the president or Republican-controlled Congress any credit for it. If anything, they’re downplaying it. The occasion of the May jobs report — 3.8 percent unemployment, lowest black unemployment in the history of the statistic — was met not with glee by Nancy Pelosi but instead with an airing of grievances.
So, what did conservative actor and Twitter legend James Woods do? Well, first he attacked Pelosi and the Democrats, who he said were following a “strategy … based on welfare, illegal immigration, and taxing those who work and create.” And then, he reminded Twitter users about what the past administration said about jobs — with a not-safe-for-work meme. In fact, it’s so not safe for work, we’re not republishing it, but feel free to check it out here. (Bet you laugh out loud.)
Woods was referring to remarks Obama made during a town hall-style meeting during the 2016 campaign in Elkhart, Indiana. During the meeting, one worker said, in reference to the Carrier plant job losses, that Obama was “doing a lot of things, but in Indianapolis, there’s nothing there for us.” “I mean, what’s next? I mean, what can we look forward to in the future as far as jobs, employment, whatever? Because all of our jobs has left or in the process of leaving, sir,” he asked.
After Obama touted his economic record, he then noted that “those folks who’ve lost their job right now because a plant went down to Mexico, that isn’t going to make you feel better. “And so, what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now, because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back. And when somebody says — like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for — that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well, how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do?” “There’s no answer to it. He just says, well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.
Well, what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually, the answer is he doesn’t have an answer.” Well, apparently, 3.8 percent unemployment kind of says he does, especially after the dead cat bounce that was the “recovery” during the Obama years. Of course, any good economic news is attributable to the Obama administration by former Obama administration officials, but any retraction of the “magic wand” remarks seems unlikely. Thankfully, we have James Woods and his memes to remind us that we could be dealing with Hillary Clinton and the Democrats’ ideas regarding job creation and wealth.
