Outspoken actor James Woods says firebrand freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is a "blessing in disguise" for conservatives in 2020.

In a tweet, Woods responded to conservative commentator Mark Levin's declaration he "won't be silenced from criticizing America-hating anti-Semite Omar."

The 71-year-ol Woods argued Omar "genuinely doesn't recognize" the "deeply embedded" hatred she espouses.

He tweeted:

"While her loathing of America and hatred of Jews is gut-wrenching, she may hand us the  #2020Election singlehandedly. So let her bile flow freely. She is a blessing in disguise."

Rep. Omar has come under fire for her controversial comments about Israel, and U.S. support of the nation — and most recently, for comments that were interpreted by conservatives as dismissive of the 9/11 terror attacks.

In a CNN interview this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued there is "no taint" of anti-Semitism within the Democratic Party, and said she had not spoken to Omar about her controversial comments.

Woods also weighed in on the Pelosi remarks, including her claim far-leftisists in her party are only "like five people."

"You are a memorial postage stamp at best," Woods mocked, dismissing progressive women in Congress as "#ThreeWitchesOfTheEast," in what may have been a slam at Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Omar, Western Journal reported.
