I didn’t think this is possible but Chris Evans got even hotter by doing this. OMG he is smart, empathic, always thinks for himself and is just the most amazing person. My knees are butter.
Captain America is against Trump. Take a second to let that sink in.

I like their idea on feedback:

If something you read here makes you angry or confused, don’t comment, write your members of Congress.

Evans Dogbe:
Man, Chris can speak so well. I am just blown away about the quality of his language.
Trevor, TWO thumbs up on that interview. I totally agree with the use of Chris Evans' celebrity to create a series of interviews with elected officials that keeps all of them on the facts and on the issues, respectfully, openly and honestly. There is so little respect in today's discourse that we are forced into picking a side without respectfully hearing the 'opposing' view. This is so valuable and so seldom done today. Great work Trevor!

Ezio Auditore Da Firenze:
This is very important project.
These kind of decisions shouldn't be made with a gut feeling. It should be based on facts.
Trump has said that he makes decisions with a gut feeling and that can surely be seen.

Chris Evans truly is the Captain America. 💪👍
Mark Kassen is also a true hero. 👍😃

I didn’t think it was possible to find Chris Evans more attractive. Clearly I was wrong. Brawn and brain?! Whaaat? Be still my poor besotted heart. Lol.

I love that Chris Evans used words like 'ouroboros'. He was awesome in Push.
Lunar Twilight
Lunar Twilight:
Excellent idea from these guys! I'm not familiar with Kassen, but we all know Evans as Captain America. I know that he DESPISES Trump with a passion, so I'm glad Trevor asked that question. With all the different "sources" that are around, it's hard to find ones that can truly be trusted to be impartial and non-partisan. I really can't wait to check their site out. Hopefully others will, despite Evan's personal views. We need more people to weight the FACTS when making big decisions like this.

Also, Kudos to Trevor for another great interview!
this is actually a really smart project. People on all sides naturally tend to be biased against opposing sides without even checking out the facts.

As we approach the end of this horrible year and you're reading this, may all your life's problems be washed away together with 2020.
L M:
The question about the picture, you can disagree with someone else's opinions but that doesn't mean you can't be polite. I think this is what they are trying to do with this website, get everyone involved in a respectful way. 👏
Just checked out their site. It's pretty decent. Probably even better than vote411 put out by the LWV. I may even use their site one day... in 2022 maybe. Coz right now there's only one issue on the ballot: do you want another four years of this living nightmare?
good luck America. In Germany there were YouTubers saying that America is doing a speedrun in history right now. We all hope, that the USA will get more justice.
Surprised no one commented how Trevor is now dating Chris's ex lmao.
I need facts instead of politics. Oh my ....The social media has been tough to navigate because everything is someone's reconstruction of facts. I thin k ASP needs to continue beyond election years and into classrooms. This way people are always informed about facts and not just during election time
Patrick Sandeberg
Patrick Sandeberg:
Chris Evans for president!
that guy in the top corner looks like captain america
When the political landscape is just a bleak canvas fuel by vitriol and bigotry, remember Chris Evans is bringing a shred of composure and cordial discourse to the current madness; bravo my friend
Aidan McMurtrie
Aidan McMurtrie:
Damn, he really is Captain America
Im not gonna lie, I can't un-see Captian America

Although Captain America is dead, Chris Evens has managed to adopt Steve Rogers’ character trails in real life.

Someone needs to give this man a medal 🎖

Richard Richardson
Richard Richardson:
really like chris evans - i dont even listen to politicans anymore
What a great initiative! So there's something being done about trying to correct the idea of facts being only what you agree with. I hope it carries on even past the election. They're basically trying to inject some level of sanity back into the country and the world. And I agree you should be able to have conversations about issues regarding the country without people judging or threatening to hurt you over it. Unfortunately my country has reached that stage cuz there's already been countless acts of violence just cuz you're apart of one party. Obviously something is being done about it but there have been reports of such instances here in Jamaica
why cant more white folks be more like chris evans.....
"If I see a situation pointed south, I can't ignore it. Sometimes I wish I could."
Chris Evans is Cap in real life. This is Civil War playing out. Hahaha!
Cap for president one day!!

Ok, this whole conversation had me pull out my dictionary at many occasions!
Chris is actually Captain America, and I love him for it.

I don’t think I can love Chris Evans more than I do... and yet I see him and love him even more ahahha
1973 (James R. Schlesinger): Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.

Suny Lou
Suny Lou:
Yoh! I thought I had a great vocabulary until Captain America started talking! I need to up my (end) game!
Words I had to look up:
1. 1:16 bloviating - talking at length, especially in an inflated or empty way.
2. 2:04 obfuscation - the action of making something obscure, unclear, or unintelligible.
3. 2:12 ouroboros - a circular symbol depicting a snake, or less commonly a dragon, swallowing its tail, as an emblem of wholeness or infinity.
4. 3:46 vitriol - cruel and bitter criticism.
5. 6:43 pernicious - having a harmful effect, especially in a gradual or subtle way.

Are elected officials really the best source of factual information, even as a starting point?

If Chris runs for leadership positions like a governor or a mayor someday, I’d vote for this guy.

Am i crazy or did you have to hunt for this? It’s not on daily show videos page at all
John Chessant
John Chessant:
This is very cool! Hopefully more elected officials will join it; most of my favorite members of Congress are not on it yet.
Clearly having to playing captain America and uphold Americas values on screen has robbed off on Chris Evans that he is now, mirroring that persona in real life.

Who says superheroes movies don't matter. Who says comic books don't matter... who dares say it now
I absolutely adore Chris Evans

George Camp
George Camp:
I just looked at your site and I am very impressed in a couple of ways. I like the short videos that are quick and to the point. I also am impressed with how reasonable both parties talk about the issues. So far, I just listened to the the responses under the topic of immigration, and I realized we all want the same thing. Unfortunately the rhetoric coming from the executive branch is tearing everyone apart. Now I am going back to listen to more! 🤓

I was blessed to find someone genuine and with a heart to take away all my pains through her healing powers. I wish I had known about Mama Sinza+27784532030 years ago before wasting so much money and so many tears.

I started my search for spiritual help about two years ago and searched online for countless spellcasters, psychics, Shamans, Buddhist monks, Christian “Prayer Warriors”. Kaballah trained Rabbis and ANYONE I thought could get rid of the bad luck plaguing my life. Although I wear a smile and joke around in my everyday life,no one around me knows about my deep inner pain over constant financial struggles and nothing but abusive relationships to recall. When Mama told me within the first 2 minutes of my reading that I had a lot of difficulty with romantic relationships, my mouth dropped in shock. She then revealed some things that I felt but never voiced and some things about me that I have kept a secret for over 15 years!!! This divine woman is not only real, but the most caring and loving person I have ever spoken to. I have been praying everyday for the angels to bless, guide and protect me and I know that they have led me to someone capable of a real Wait. Cast your skepticism aside because she is truly a powerful spiritual being with the ability to alter your reality and manifest what you need.if you also want to be helped call or WhatsApp Mama Sinza +27784532030
