Actor James Woods Suggests Obama Hasn’t Done Enough to Debunk Muslim Rumors

With a wink and a nod, the outspoken conservative actor, 66, snarked on Thursday evening that the president’s Christmas message convinced him that the leader of the free world had finally put to bed the long-standing rumors that originated, circa 2007, in your crotchety uncle’s email chains:

As a bonus, here’s a reminder of one of the better late-period James Woods appearances. For seven episodes, he appeared as a fictional version of himself on Family Guy, voicing particularly bizarre scenes such as this one:
