James Woods made a triumphant return to Twitter this week and immediately returned to his lib-bashing ways.
The conservative actor’s 10-month hiatus from the social media network ended on Thursday night.
“I’ve tried so hard this past year to live without the wealth of knowledge available on Twitter, but this kind of blazing insight can be found nowhere else, so… I’m back! #AOCStillAMoron,” Woods tweeted in a caption to a video featuring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The footage, taken from a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday, showed Ocasio-Cortez commenting on a common adage in American political discourse, which emphasizes personal responsibility and hard work.
“It’s a physical impossibility to lift yourself up by a bootstrap, by your shoelaces? It’s physically impossible. The whole thing is a joke,” the freshman congresswoman said while responding to proposed changes to poverty line guidelines.
Woods has made Ocasio-Cortez a frequent target of his ire in the past.
In March, he referred to the progressive New York Democrat as “Comrade Cortez.”

Later that same month, Woods claimed Ocasio-Cortez was an “embarrassment to the nation.”
However, Woods’ Thursday night Twitter outburst wasn’t just reserved for her.
In a series of tweets, Woods blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “famous loser,” called Sen. Elizabeth Warren a “liar and hypocrite” and dismissed Sen’ Bernie Sanders as a “poor old fool.”
