Chris Evans is taking on U.S. President Donald Trump.
The “Captain America” actor, 37, sent out a hilarious tweet, mocking Trump’s continuous complaints about “fake news.”
Writing as if the tweet were coming from the former “Apprentice” star, Evans said, “Help! I’ve never done anything wrong in my entire life, but somehow hostility is at an all-time high. Just because I kick beehives all day, it’s not MY fault when people get stung! No one has EVER been treated so unfairly. Sad. Also, where’s Obama’s birth certificate?”
The reply came after Trump tweeted: “There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame…”
Evans has been very vocal about his dislike of the POTUS; in a 2017 interview with Esquire, he said: “I feel fury. It’s unbelievable. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame. They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry. Hear someone say that Washington sucks. They just want something new without actually understanding. I mean, guys like Steve Bannon — Steve Bannon! — this man has no place in politics.”
More recently, Evans slammed Kanye West when he spoke of the positive power of his “Make America Great Again” hat.
