Chris Evans Responds To Election Results

chris-evans-cap

Yesterday, quite possibly the most ugly election in modern U.S. history came to a close. Donald Trump is now the President-elect, beating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to become President Obama’s successor. Mr. Trump ran one of the most toxic campaigns in history, and his victory last night truly shocked the world and has left millions uncertain about where the direction of this great country goes from here on out.

Joining in on the disappointment was Captain America himself, Chris Evans. Before the race was officially called, the actor took to Twitter to voice his disappointment with the results of this election:

Nobody saw this coming. I was in absolute shock at the results last night not just because of all the countless controversies throughout the campaign trail, but because the results clearly showcased that Americans are even more divided than we thought. In retrospect, it’s pretty fitting that films like Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were released during this election year.

But even though it’s hard to look on the bright side of these dire situations, we need to continue to persevere. Today, David Daut wrote an inspiring article to why in the heroic age of Hollywood (and now in the age of Trump), we need superheroes more than ever. We need these characters to continually inspire us to be the best person we can be. Yes, we have all been infected by fear in more ways than one – especially after the final tallies. But we must persevere. The sun still rose this morning, the holidays are just around the corner, and we have even more comic book films and television shows to be excited for in the very near future. Whether you’re Democrat or Republican, liberal or  conservative, and of course, DC fan or a Marvel fan, we must remain optimistic and commit to a better tomorrow.

Avengers assemble.

    What a dumbshit. I’m not a fan of either candidate but to say Hillary is better is flat out laughable

    • Peter James

      you’re “not a fan of either candidate”

      Rrrrright.

      And I’m the Sultan of Brunei.

      You must be one of those “silent” Trump voters who were to ashamed to admit they were voting for a bigoted bully and misogynist racist

      • Bill

        Hahahaha god you’re a dipshit. Time to grow up my friend

        • You have nothing worthwhile to say. It’s time to block you.

      • DefJ123

        Please explain what he’s said that is bigoted or mysognamic? Please also comment on how Hillary has been proven to call blacks n*ggers and threatened/ silenced Bill’s rape victims.

        • Peter James

          “Please explain what he’s said that is bigoted or mysognamic? Please also comment on how Hillary has been proven to call blacks n*ggers”

          Sure I will, just as soon as you corroborate your claim that Hillary ever said that about any black person.

          Also as soon as you learn how to correctly spell MISOGYNIST

          • DefJ123

            John Podesta leaked emails. Go and have a look, wiki leaks released alot of dirt on Clinton. She’s not the saint the political left makes her out to be.

            And don’t tell me those are fake or propaganda, theyre as real as real gets. Get on it now I’m awaiting your explanation!

          • John Smith

            It’s Plato’s allegory of the cave. You can’t undo years of bullshit being shoved into their ears.

          • DefJ123

            Great analogy and very true.

    • Axxell

      Hillary was better…Not by a huge margin, mind you, but solidly so.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      He never said she was better. He just declared he was devastated

  • SAMURAI36

    Wow, these Marvel guys really need to come to grips with the fact that their CEO is a supporter of said “hatemonger”.

    • Peter James

      You’re wrong on pretty much every single level as I posted in the other post you tried to peddle this lie.

      Their boss is Feige.

      Do you know Feige’s politics? I don’t.

      Perlmutter has nothing to do with Marvel Studios (the movie division) as he’s the Marvel COMICS CEO.
      But you already knew that even as you try to lie your way (like a Trump supporter ironically) through your talking point.

      I’m still waiting for you to prove that none of the WB/DC Execs are Trump supporters.

    • Axxell

      When will you come to terms with the fact that DC’s new parent company was one of Trump’s biggest supporters? I’m assuming you’re gonna throw out those MoS/BvS/SS BluRays out in disgust, right? I mean, to not do so would be hypocritical…

  • Carl

    I 100% agree with him.

  • Viktor Henn

    Maybe he should start a Civil War.

    • Darthmanwe

      Funny enough…. It might start on its own because…. #Calexit.

      • John Smith

        The same people that called Trump supports “deplorable” are out on the streets setting fires, attacking people, and calling for people to be killed because their candidate didn’t win. Considering Wikileaks didn’t bring any epiphanies to the ignorant, maybe the reaction to Trump’s election can be very educational for all the “moderates” who voted for Hillary.

    He probably believes he really is Cap? I don’t get it why everyone believes that Clinton would be better. She basically declared war on Russia. But hey let’s see what happens shall we. And please no more political discussions on a comic site.

    • Peter James

      When did she declare war on Russia?

      Only the president can do that under this system of Government that you deplorables don’t seem to have a clue how it works.

      Technically it’s Congress that actually does it.
      But that’s only at the behest of the President.
      This are details that people like you never bother with.

    I mean if he thinks a woman who basically declared war on Russia, been investigated by the FBI multiple times, has a death trail behind her, willingly left Americans to die for her politics, helped arm ISIS and who’s husband is a rapist would be an ideal President then sure.

  • lamar

    Let the poorly uneducated have their victory. Its the only accomplishment they will ever hope to achieve.

    Can’t our hobbies simply remain our hobbies. If the social media age has taught us anything its politics ruins everything.
