James Woods, a two-time Academy Awards nominee, may be outspoken about his conservative views but that doesn’t mean he can’t be cordial.
An example of Woods’ good nature was seen in the wee hours of Monday, as the actor generously offered a few tips to a raging liberal who posted a video of herself hating on Trump supporters.
Critiquing the young woman’s frantic act, Woods provided several recommendations to help her come across as more believable.
“Honey, I know a few things about acting, so a couple of tips: 1) Mexicans don’t usually say “y’all,” 2) If you’re going to cry, tears are usually a handy accessory, and 3) NEVER use “air quotes” while driving,” he tweeted.

In the accompanying video, which has since been deleted, the woman rants about finding herself in the middle of a Trump caravan and being accosted by those who support President Trump — she fails to mention what may have caused them to be drawn to her, which may say a lot.
“I was just on the 405 and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally,” she said, doing her best to summons a tear, but coming up dry. “And they f*cking boxed me in.”
Turns out, according to TMZ, which shared a copy of the video, the woman is Francia Raisa, who donated a kidney to singer Selena Gomez, so there’s that.
Raisa claimed the Trump supporters were pointing at her and laughing, and that she “almost crashed” because they tried to box her in.
“All I was trying to do was go around,” she whined.

“I could have crashed. I could’ve f*cking crashed,” Raisa said. “It was so dangerous and I just don’t understand why that’s the country ya’ll are supposedly wanting right now.”
“Really, that what makes America great?” she added, taking a hand of the steering wheel to mimic a quote. “That’s f*cked up. I could have f*cking died right now.”
Trying hard to ramp up her emotions, Raisa suggested that she was targeted because she was Mexican. But her cheeks remained as dry as the Southern California air.
“That’s so f*cken dangerous,” she cried. “Pointing at me and laughing at a Mexican.”
It’s not clear exactly where in Southern California she was, but there was a Trump caravan in Los Angeles County on Sunday.
Considering that 48.6% of Los Angeles County are Hispanic, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Raisa’s claim that her ethnicity was a motivating factor would mean the Trump supporters would have been targeting every other car on the road.
As seen in the video above, the caravan was doing no such thing.
Unless, of course, she did something that caused her to stand out among the other motorists.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:

I found the video. Obviously she mistook the 👍 for 🖕 and the honking for laughing because the only reason they would do that is she’s “Mexican.” https://t.co/ORB8cEADF3

Someone tell her she’s going to crash if she keeps looking at that camera instead of having her eyes on the road….

Yes. Hand held, at least.
No one should be filming themselves in this way while driving — she keeps looking at the camera instead of at the road.

4. Go to the fridge and get a can of “toughen the fuck up”. On special this week at your grocery store.

That’s that generation.. they only wanna be instafamous. They latch on to what they think will be received by others.. then they go overboard while checking their makeup in the mirror. I don’t understand them.
