Can Hollywood just get a grip already and accept the fact that Donald Trump is the president of the United States?
Doesn’t it just seem ridiculous at this point when Hollywood elitists can’t get over the fact that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton lost?
And Captain America AKA, Chris Evans, had some choice words for Trump supporters and one of his favorite athletes who he believes to be one.
It’s this old tired game again. A movie celebrity on the press junket for his/her upcoming movie is pressed about politics like any of the rest of us care about it. We don’t.
They want to be edgy and the more they dictate anti-President Trump nonsense, the more their credibility goes up in the Hollywood community.
With that comes a lot of bloviating nonsensical garbage from the film’s stars because journalists chomp at the bit to get an “exclusive” political take from them knowing that it will become a national newsworthy story.
Chris Evans is the actor that plays the iconic Marvel character, Captain America, and he was not too keen on Trump supporters.
He said in a recent Hollywood Reporter article about Trump’s supporters, “You don’t want to alienate half your audience. But I’d be disappointed in myself if I didn’t speak up. Especially for fear of some monetary repercussion or career damage — that just feels really gross to me.”
Evans is also a Boston native and it even bothered him to a point where the quarterback of his beloved Boston, New England, Patriots, Tom Brady, might be a Trump supporter.
He said of Brady being a “supposed” Trump supporter, “I don’t know. I really hope he’s not a Trump supporter. I’m just hoping he’s one of those guys that maybe supported him and now regrets it. Maybe he thought it was going to be different — and even that bothers me — but maybe there’s a chance now he just thinks Trump’s an absolute dumb s—, which he is. If he doesn’t, if he’s still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties. It’s really tough.”
The reason why he thinks Brady is a Trump supporter is because a sports journalist identified a signature red MAGA hat in his locker after a practice almost two years ago.
Evans also said, “I think maybe a couple of years ago. I might have tried to pull some, like, mental gymnastics to compartmentalize, but I don’t know if I can anymore. So I’m just hoping he’s woken up.”
Maybe he’s the one that needs to compartmentalize, right?
Evans is genuinely angry about a might-be situation. He has no idea where Brady falls on the spectrum but he’s going out of his way to bastardize the most important part of his team on a hunch?
Nobody knows whether the greatest quarterback to ever play the game is Trump supporter or not.
Yet, this is the kind of nonsense that needs to be shoved down our throats? The whole point being that a Trump supporter is evil incarnate.
It’s the exact same thing that Empire star, Jussie Smollett, tried to pull that made up news on a national level. He intentionally tried to demonize Trump supporters as outright violent racists who would go out of their way to beat him up.
The problem with that logic is that he allegedly did it to himself and there was no “MAGA” supporter in arms’ distance from him.
