Leave it to James Woods to make life miserable for the left.
When Friday’s delivery of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his Russia “collusion” investigation to Attorney General William Barr made it clear that the long probe into the 2016 election wasn’t going to turn up anything like the results Democrats dreamed of, Woods was ready.
And the man who’s proven himself repeatedly as a master of the use of social media to make his political points didn’t let his fans down.
In a Twitter post published Saturday, Woods dusted off a montage skewering of the mainstream media and some of its best-known personalities, who have been predicting virtually since President Donald Trump took the oath of office that their long national nightmare was coming to an end. (Versions of the montage have circulated before, but it had particular resonance this weekend.)
And while the contents of Mueller’s report haven’t been made public yet, the fact that the investigation has ended without the Perry Mason moment of liberal fantasy, with Trump and his family being frog-marched from the grounds of the White House, certainly showed the weekend represented yet another in a long line of “tipping points” for the Trump presidency.
Just not the kind liberals have been pining for.
“In light of Trump’s slam dunk victory yesterday,” Woods wrote, “please watch this Cavalcade of Clowns burping up the same #Democrat talking points ad nauseum. Now tell me the liberal press isn’t a stockyard of mooing, biased cattle!”
The video accompanying the post proves Woods’ point, though to be fair, mooing, brainless cattle deserve better than the comparison implies.

There are plenty of the usual suspects, of course, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews for instance, and plenty of cameos, but the underlying theme of the montage is that liberals have been predicting since even before Trump took the oath of office that his presidency was going to be short-circuited by scandal.
Woods’ Twitter followers got the message, of course. Loud and clear.
And joined in with their own derision of the mainstream media.
Are these the same people telling us the world is going to end in 12 years due to climate change?

Egg on their faces‼️ @CNN and @MSNBC should just shut themselves down in order to prevent any further irrelevancy and self-destruction. How can it be business as usual after this implosion? Just watch their damage control spin. This should be humorous 😂

“Should be humorous” is one way of putting it. But at least one of Woods’ respondents had a more serious point.
“This isn’t funny. It’s destructive to our Country,” the user wrote. “They are radicalizing the political opposition.

And that is dead on.
As much as Trump supporters, and supporters of the Trump presidency, might be enjoying the moment where Democrats and the mainstream media are forced to acknowledge that the special counsel investigation they’ve pinned their hopes on since May 2017 appears to have fallen far short of providing fodder for a serious impeachment attempt against the president, it’s important to note the damage they have inflicted.
As the inestimable Andrew McCarthy pointed out in National Review, in a piece titled “After Mueller’s Exoneration of Trump, Full Disclosure”:
“In sum, we have endured a two-year ordeal in which the president of the United States was forced to govern under a cloud of suspicion — suspicion of being a traitor, of scheming with a foreign adversary to steal an election. This happened because the Obama administration — which opened the probe of the Trump campaign, and which opted to use foreign counterintelligence spying powers rather than give Trump a defensive briefing about suspected Russian infiltration of his campaign — methodically forced its suspicions about Trump into the public domain.”
And for what?
So that Trump supporters would not be able to enjoy the fruits of their labors in the 2016 election?
So that America as a whole would be denied the improvements to the nation’s economy and standing in the world Trump had guaranteed on the campaign trail?
(And has substantially delivered in the face of overwhelming opposition by an unscrupulous Democratic Party and a duplicitous national media.)
The campaign for the Democratic nomination for the presidency to challenge Trump is just getting started, but it’s already achieved a circus clown-car level of the ludicrous.
As the Woods video shows, the mainstream media has already debased itself to an equally ludicrous level.
Life on the left isn’t easy this weekend, thanks to the Mueller investigation wrapping up as it has.
Leave it to conservative actor James Woods to make that just a little bit more enjoyable for the rest of us.
This fight isn’t over, it won’t ever be over. But it’s OK to savor a “slam dunk victory” once in a while.
