In a recent interview "Captain America" star Chris Evans mentioned that he hopes Tom Brady, the quarterback of his favorite team, is not a President Trump supporter.
The 37-year-old Evans is with the "orange man bad" movement like most of Hollywood. During his tell-all interview with The Hollywood Reporter the discussion turned to his vocal political views that he blasts onto social media.
"You don't want to alienate half your audience," Evans said during the interview. "But I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't speak up. Especially for fear of some monetary repercussion or career damage — that just feels really gross to me."
Would #AvengersEndgame star @ChrisEvans play Tom Brady in a biopic? That depends on if the sports star really is a Trump supporter: “If he's still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties. It's really tough” https://t.co/Tpnq00KrGX pic.twitter.com/Xhyc0z3BD9

This interview went down just days before the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.
Evans was asked if he would consider playing tom Brady in a movie.
"I don't know," Evans said when asked about Brady. "I really hope he's not a Trump supporter. I'm just hoping he's one of those guys that maybe supported him and now regrets it. Maybe he thought it was going to be different — and even that bothers me — but maybe there's a chance now he just thinks Trump's an absolute dumb s---, which he is. If he doesn't, if he's still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties. It's really tough."
He also said that he hopes Brady has "woken up."
"I think maybe a couple of years ago," the actor said. "I might have tried to pull some, like, mental gymnastics to compartmentalize, but I don't know if I can anymore. So I'm just hoping he's woken up."
Evans is a native of Sudbury, Massachusetts and a big-time Patriots fan who attends the games.
Back in 2015 there was a "Make America Great Again" hat spotted in locker's room, which triggered many.

Since the 2016 election Brady has distanced himself from President Trump and did not go to the White House after the Patriots victory in the Super Bowl.
Tom Brady: The GOAT; 6x Super Bowl Champ; is married to a Brazilian supermodel
Chris Evans: Plays comic book dressup in movies; is friends with all kinds of Hollywood cretins and commies
Tom Brady is clearly crestfallen over this news.

Think about how crazy it is. This unhinged Hollywood leftist is basically threatening Tom Brady to stop supporting President Trump or he will cut ties. What does that even mean? If Tom Brady wins another Super Bowl, then Evans won't be happy about it? I'm sure Tom is so concerned about this. He probably stays up late at night thinking about it. But eventually he falls asleep with his six Super Bowl rings and supermodel wife.
