  1. These days Woods spends most of his days as a recluse. Sitting alone on using Twitter for hours and hours mostly attacking the entire population of Democrats. He justifies his often times very nasty comments based on the plethora of conspiracy theories that so many Republicans ascribe to since Donald Trump became president. He loves Trump and thinks he is the best president ever and that a better one coming along most likely will never happen. I loved James Woods acting for decade’s but when you witness this level of decline into such toxic judgementalism it makes remaining a fan very challenging if not impossible.

    • Hi John,
      Evidently you were never a real fan.
      He was and is a great actor. He is not afraid of speaking his
      Opinions. I think he is one of the most intelligent Actors we have. I love to read about him and hear his latest thoughts.
      Would love to have a conversation with him, love him!!

      • John wasn’t commenting on Jameses intelligence. He was posting his opinion on James woods life. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. It doesn’t make you a better fan than John. It doesn’t make Jon a better fan than you. Good luck to you
        Indeed, God help us all!

    • You mean just like the hateful and toxic left is despite them claiming that they are inclusive and tolerant of everyone and quite frankly we have all seen how that’s a lie.

  2. Dear John, oh how I hate to write, dear John you’ve lost your insight to human nature. James Woods is a very intelligent man and even if he wasn’t he has a right to his opinion so you say he is in decline because he doesn’t agree with the crazy left. What’s wrong with you, your the one who is delusional. If he makes nasty comments its because he can see what is happening to us as a country and is frustrated knowing that people like you do not understand or don’t want to understand because your a leftie. So freaking sad! I was a Democrat for some 40 yrs but saw the writing on the wall. It isn’t a weakness to know when your wrong, its only a weakness if you cannot admit it. There are none so blind as those who cannot see! God help us all!!
