Donald Trump has courted celebrity his entire life. He’s even been willing in the past to disguise his voice and call reporters pretending to be someone else making glowing statements about what a powerful, wealthy businessman he is in order to get his name into the papers.
What he did to brag about his celebrity status on Friday, however, is both hilarious in its absurdity and frightening when one realizes how far Trump is willing to go now that he’s in the White House.
James Woods is a very famous award-winning actor who no one, not even his own management company, wants anything to do with anymore. His vile rants against gay actors, sexual assault victims, transgender children, and immigrants got him banned from Twitter permanently and, shortly afterward, got him dropped by his talent agency.
How then is James Woods tweeting praise of Trump that can be retweeted by a narcissistic, insecure president? He isn’t, because the account that Trump retweeted was just a James Woods parody account.
The real Woods’ tweets were horrifying, but his parody account may be even more so. Whomever runs that account has spent weeks attacking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford with insults and conspiracy theories. The account includes endless retweets from people like Ann Coulter, Candace Owens, and Dinesh D’Souza as well as, you guessed it, Donald Trump.
The topics range from the loony to the downright disgusting. Dr. Ford is a deep state operative out for money, but also is mentally deranged. The women speaking out against Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, are not real victims, just crisis actresses paid by George Soros. Accused pedophile Roy Moore was a good man who should have been elected senator. The insanity just goes on and on and gets worse with each passing day of vicious, right-wing tweets.
If a man can be judged by the company he keeps, then Donald Trump can be judged as a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, and homophobic conspiracy theorist with multiple screws loose.
