Like a lot of famous people who have dared to express some progressive side to their politics online, English actor Jason Isaacs draws right wing trolls and reactionary fuckheads to him like flies.

As he has shown before though—in both his masterful take-downs of Sean Spicer and George Osborne—Isaacs is not one to mince his words, or to back down from a fight. He is a Force For Good on the hostile plains of social media. His vocal activism makes sense considering his background. Isaacs grew up surrounded by antisemitism, once saying:

There were constantly people beating us up or smashing windows. If you were ever, say, on a Jewish holiday, identifiably Jewish, there was lots of violence around. But particularly when I was 16, in 1979, the National Front were really taking hold, there were leaflets at school, and Sieg Heiling and people goose-stepping down the road and coming after us.

So when the sad racist or misogynistic cockwombles of Twitter come for Isaacs, he comes right back.

And Trump? That man should have collapsed by now just from the sheer amount of righteous vitriol Isaacs has Tweeted in his direction. Here are some highlights from his Twitter feed:

When Sean Spicer tried to score points about Harvey Weinstein being a donor a donor to the Democrats:

When someone called him a ‘creepy fucker’:

When someone called Trump a snowflake:

When someone told him that no one cares about his politics:

When someone tweets racist gibberish at him:

When someone bemoans yet another Trekkie liberal:

When someone expresses dismay at yet another liberal in the entertainment industry:

When Armie Hammer went to town on James Woods:

When someone compared their excitement to going to see The Death Of Stalin to their first Action Man toy and its ‘real gripping hands’:

At the news that Trump wouldn’t attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner:
