Captain America on Trump Presidency: ‘I Feel Rage. I Feel Fury’ (Video)

(Before It's News)

Two words are apt when describing one primary legacy of the 8 years of an Obama presidency – federal overreach. Under his incompetent administration, the powers of the federal government and the national security state were continuously increased, primarily in the name of national security. But his legacy of federal overreach extends further than that and right into the schools of our children.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the congressional pushback against the Obama administration’s attempt to dictate how public school teachers are trained and taught; a proposal that received flak and criticism from both sides of the aisle.

While seemingly innocuous, Obama’s legislation would have reduced state and local control over education and provided a slippery slope into further federal control into higher education. We commend Congress for their pushback against the legislation; the slippery slope argument is real, just look at how our liberties have been continuously eroded in the name of national security.

DO NOT MISS THE BRAND NEW: AIM FOR TRUTH MEDIA!

Breitbart reports:

Captain America star Chris Evans shared his feelings about Donald Trump’s presidency in a wide-ranging interview this week, explaining that he still finds the Republican billionaire’s political rise “unbelievable.”

“I feel rage. I feel fury,” the 35-year-old actor told Esquire for the magazine’s April cover story.

“It’s unbelievable. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame,” he added. “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.”

Evans — who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign — has been an outspoken critic of Trump on social media. The actor has criticized the president’s executive orders on immigration, and last year accused him of “energizing lies” Shortly after the election, Evans called for and end to the Electoral College, which secured Trump’s victory even as Clinton won the popular vote.

Evans told Esquire that he is aware it may not be smart for him, from a business perspective, to be so outspoken about his political beliefs.

“Look, I’m in a business where you’ve got to sell tickets. But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn’t speak up,” he told the magazine. “I think it’s about how you speak up. We’re allowed to disagree. If I state my case and people don’t want to go see my movies as a result, I’m okay with that.”

Still, the actor acknowledged the possibility that people could be turned off to differing opinions if rhetoric becomes too heated, explaining that instead of yelling about one’s views, it is now a “time for calm.”

“Because not everyone who voted for Trump is going to be some horrible bigot,” he said. “There are a lot of people in that middle; those are the people you can’t lose your credibility with. If you’re trying to change minds, by spewing too much rhetoric you can easily become white noise.”

Elsewhere in the long interview, Evans revealed that he may hang up the Captain America shield after his upcoming appearances in Avengers: Infinity War and its planned sequel, which will shoot back-to-back beginning in April.

    Awe darn…looks like I have to cross Chris Evans off my list of movie actors and movies he’s in that I will pay to see. And I so loved those Avengers Captain America movies. Darn, darn, darn. Why didn’t he keep his politics to himself. If he wants to share it with his buds…no problem… but using his profession as one of the top actors in Hollywood to enter into the public arena … with his uninformed quasi opinion is loaded with hubris and serves no productive purpose. I’m sure the 10 year old down the street has opinions on the President too, but like Chris here, it carries about the same amount of weight.

    O.K. Everybody pay attention.
    Actors get paid to lie for a living.
    Why does anybody care what they have to say.
