'YOU SCARED?' James Woods Defends TX Rep. Mayra Flores After NYT Goes on the Attack

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.07.22

Actor James Woods hit back at the New York Times after the left-wing newspaper published a story about Rep. Mayra Flores, the first Republican Latina ever elected to Congress from Texas, and the first female Mexican-born member of the House of Representatives; the Times called her a “Far-Right Latina.”

“You scared, guys?” Woods tweeted. “She ran on family, hard work, and patriotic values. Oh, right. Of course you’re scared.”

Woods circled back for another shot at the Times: “Oh, and where is the ‘x’ in ‘Latina,’ hypocrites?”

Flores also punched back against the article, speaking exclusively to Fox News Digital.

“I am proud of my culture and my beautiful family,” Flores says.

“I was born in Burgos, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and raised with strong Conservative values to always put God and Family first. I have received only hate from the liberal media and constantly [been] told by the left to go back to Mexico. They don’t support us immigrants, they only use us for political power and don’t care about our well-being. I am here now and I won’t allow them to continue taking advantage of my people. The NYT knows nothing about me or our culture. Somos gente de Dios, Familia y Travajo [We are people of God, Family and Work], Si Señor!” she wrote.

A New York Times spox told Fox News, “Our story chronicles the rise of Representative Mayra Flores in Texas and her association and amplification of far-right messages and ideology from amplifying QAnon to spreading misinformation about the 2020 election.”
