With the recent confirmation of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General of the United States, Chris Evans has proved to us just how much he is like his film counterpart, Captain America. Evans recently tweeted his disappointment in the confirmation of Sessions. And his argument? David Duke’s praise for Sessions:

 

Duke is best known as a white nationalist, Holocaust denier, and former Imperial Wizard of the white supremacist organization known as the Ku Klux Klan. He also happens to support Donald Trump and his team, especially fellow white nationalist Steve Bannon.

Like an angry troll, Duke responded:

Evans quickly clapped back with proof of Duke’s racist history with some quotes made by the former KKK wizard.

Duke did not respond to Evans but continued posting anti-Semitic tweets, like the villain he is. Evans didn’t stop there. He then dropped some knowledge to his 4.93 million followers.

Chris Evans truly is our Captain America.
