James Woods Found Old Video of Hillary, Linked It to Peter Strzok and the Internet Went Nuts

Most of America got its first look at Deputy Assistant FBI Director Peter Strzok during his televised congressional testimony Thursday, and he made quite an impression.

It wouldn’t be surprising if words like “smarmy,” “arrogant” and “condescending” were trending on social media while Strzok was dismissing inquiries about his political bias and explaining how his text saying “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from being elected president “in no way suggested that I or the FBI would take any action to influence the candidacy.”

Democrats might have loved his smug defiance in the face of questions from House Republicans, but many viewers were appalled.

Some members of the committee called out Strzok for his obnoxious demeanor. Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert referenced the “little smirk” he was wearing.

One particular Strzok moment was so creepy and contemptuous that when it went viral on Twitter, people couldn’t believe it was real.

The FBI official came across like a Hollywood supervillain with his “cat that ate the canary” sneer and head-and-shoulder wiggle.

As he often does, actor James Woods had a perfect take on that moment.

Woods paired the Strzok video with an old one of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton making a similar motion, and tweeted it with the words, “Great snakes writhe alike…”

His followers thought it was a home run.

Some pointed out the resemblance to another serpent.

Woods’ post has received a well-deserved 14,000 retweets and 38,000 likes so far, showing he once again hit the bull’s eye.
