Avengers: Endgame star and Captain America actor Chris Evans took a shot at President Donald Trump via Twitter calling him worse than a “s***** playground bully.”
Evans took the shot at President Trump after Axios shared a video clip of President Donald Trump describing an alleged protestor who was removed from the rally, “That guy’s got a serious weight problem.” The President would then offer him some advice, “Go home, start exercising.”

The Captain America actor would then comment on the video stating, “We’ve hit basic human decency bedrock. Can my reaction even be considered sanctimonious when the behavior in question falls short of the morality we would expect from a s***** playground bully? This chasm of moral leadership we’re living through has his name all over it.” (Related: Chris Evans Faces Barrage of Criticism After Announcing Political Website “Where You Can Hear Both Sides”)
We’ve hit basic human decency bedrock.

However, in a twist of events, the alleged protestor was actually a Donald Trump supporter. Frank Dawson, the man President Trump was referring to, told Fox News that he was actually attempting to subdue a number of the protestors.
Dawson stated, “He didn’t see me rip the signs away from those three people that were sitting near us. They were trying to cause a ruckus and they jumped up and started yelling something.” He added, “I don’t even care what they were yelling, but it wasn’t going to happen beside me because I’m trying to listen to my president. I think he thought I was part of it, but I wasn’t — I was the good part of it.”
As for President Trump’s criticism of him, Dawson stated, “Everything’s good. I love the guy. He’s the best thing that ever happened to this country.
Evans has a history of targeting Donald Trump. On one occasion he referred to him as the Back to the Future villain Biff and mocked his ability to read. (Related: Captain America Actor Chris Evans Has Choice Words for President Donald Trump)
Donald Trump hasn’t been his only target. He’s already targeted South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and Vice President Mike Pence. (Related: Captain America Actor Chris Evans Targets Lindsey Graham – Compares Him to a Remora!)
