Actress Susan Sarandon became an internet sensation during the 2016 Democratic National Convention because of her distaste for Hillary Clinton. While the Democrats around her cheered for the eventual nominee, a camera caught Sarandon scowling. Social media users concluded she was having the "worst" time at the conference. And she confirmed it.

Sarandon, an Oscar winner and Emmy nominee, preferred Sen. Bernie Sanders. And like many Bernie supporters, she detested the Democratic National Committee for doing their part to stymie his campaign and make way for Hillary. Many voters like Sarandon are still bitter about it, but they're in a much better position this election, with Sanders sweeping the first three presidential contests.

Sarandon has shifted her sights to another establishment Democrat, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She's actively campaigning for her opponent, Shahid Buttar.

Sarandon's Twitter campaign against Pelosi has earned her the title, "The James Woods of the left." Woods, a veteran actor, is a bit of a rock star in the conservative movement because of his savage messages for progressive lawmakers, liberal media and liberal Hollywood. 

James Woods recently returned from his Twitter hiatus, to the pleasant surprise of conservatives.
