Captain America actor Chris Evans is wading heavily into political spheres lately with his most recent venture targeting South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.

Evans took to Twitter to blast Graham writing, “Hey Smithers, remember when you said this: ‘You know how you make America great again, tell Donald Trump to go to hell.'”

He then insinuated that Graham is being blackmailed asking, “What do they have on you? I can’t tell if this shameful 180 is born of fear or thirst.”

Finally, he would compare Graham to a remora, “Either way, we will always remember you as nothing more than remora.”

According to Britannica, remora are “any of eight species of marine fishes of the family Echeneidae (order Perciformes) noted for attaching themselves to, and riding about on, sharks, other large marine animals, and oceangoing ships. Remoras adhere by means of a flat, oval sucking disk on top of the head.”

Evans’ Tweet came after Senator Lindsey Graham just had a meeting with President Donald Trump and he urged him to declare a national emergency in order to build a border wall.

As Evans points out, Lindsey Graham was heavily opposed to Donald Trump during the 2016 primaries, where he was actively campaigning against him.

However, Graham since Donald Trump secured the election and became President of the United States, he has had a much more cordial relationship with him. Graham received wide praise from many conservatives following his impassioned defense of now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Evans isn’t the first celebrity to go after Graham. Following his defense of Kavanaugh, a number of celebrities including Ron Perlman piled on Graham by questioning his sexuality.

Graham also isn’t Evans’ first political target. He most recently called Vice President Mike Pence an “obsequious little worm.

He’s also targeted President Donald Trump comparing him to Back to the Future villain Biff.

Evans has also targeted his fellow celebrities when he went after Kanye West, who called for an end to prisoner enslavement which is enshrined in the 13th amendment.

The actor will reprise his role as Captain America in Avengers: Endgame, where he is expected to find a way to defeat the Mad Titan Thanos. Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters on April 26th.

What do you make of Evans’ recent comments about Senator Lindsey Graham? Do you think he is in the right to call out the Senator? Or do you think he’s completely out of line?
