However, the tweet about Cooper from Woods is getting James backlash like the following comments from social media.
“For someone who couldn’t care less you sure spend a lot of time on twitter telling people how much you don’t care.
“Shameful! You should be so proud of yourself James Woods. Nice to watch you erode your career in real time.”
“There is NOTHING strong about
@KellyannePolls How he stomached interviewing her at all, is the real question.”
“When I saw that I lost a lot of respect for Anderson Cooper when he rolled his eyes back into his head he was very disrespectful.”
“How could he not roll his eyes? Conway is looney!”
“Why is it nobody caught
@KellyannePolls‘ flirty wink right before he rolled his eyes? Yet she screams about sexism…”
“KellyAnne Conjob should have ‘an exasperated look.’ Having to continually defend the crap of djt.”
“One by one we watch the haters destroy their own respectability, over
@POTUS 45 Their therapists should refund money.”
“That was something a 14 year old girl would do
“oh-oh… Be careful James, Twitter PC police will be after you.”
