James Woods wrote possibly one of the most sincere, meaningful compliments we’ve seen maybe ever for Trump. It wasn’t filled with flaming eagles, American flags, and comparing him to some deity (and hey, if that’s your thing, more power to you), but instead, it spoke of his love for America and Americans regardless of his flaws.
Because let’s be honest, Trump is a human being and we all know humans are imperfect.
For James to point these flaws out and use them as a positive … well, it’s just really textbook James Woods.
Take a look.
Let’s face it. Donald Trump is a rough individual. He is vain, insensitive and raw. But he loves America more than any President in my lifetime. He is the last firewall between us and this cesspool called Washington. I’ll take him any day over any of these bums. #Trump2020 pic.twitter.com/QlH3C74D1M

The president himself saw James’ tweet and responded:
I think that is a great compliment. Thank you James! https://t.co/8ZfHD4LjT1

Because Trump understands what James is saying here, that his love for America and Americans outshines any of his flaws.
Too bad Maggie Haberman’s reading comprehension skills aren’t better:
The quote goes on to praise his presidency and say he "loves America" more than other presidents. Begins with this: "Let’s face it. Donald Trump is a rough individual. He is vain, insensitive and raw." https://t.co/piGkc9qU2P

Anyone shocked a New York Times reporter is taking part of a quote out of context to make it a bad thing?
So damn predictable.
We can read FYI.

The entire quote is in the retweet. Why the need to explain it?

Because she’s trying to claim Trump is too stupid to realize James was honest about his flaws.
She’s wrong, of course.

Thank you for summarizing a 7-line tweet with a 6 1/2-line tweet.

Democrats believed Obama was the Messiah and could do wrong.
Republicans believe Trump has flaws but is fighting for what’s right.
A stark difference.

Ding ding ding, there it is.
He might love America, but he sure doesn’t seem to love Americans.

Maybe Marianne should stick with things she knows about, like crystals and stuff.
