Most of us are looking forward to ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ with some early reviews claiming that it could just be the greatest comic book film ever made. Of course, leftists will be pissed because Hawkeye is in it (see WATCH: Avengers Call Fictional Black Widow a “Slut”… Liberals Lose It and Jeremy Renner Dismisses Silly Gender Pay Gap. #SJW Feminists Rage…) and probably be upset that Robert Downney Jr. is getting paid more than the girl playing Scarlet Witch because, well, one does. But the rest of us are excited.
Of course, because it’s 2016 and everything has to be about the election all the time, Jimmy Kimmel reimagined the movie as the Presidential race. It’s actually pretty funny…
There are some interesting parallels between our current presidential election and “Captain America: Civil War.” Both of them feature former friends who are now enemies. They both feature powerful men and women who are also cartoon characters. There’s also a lot of interest in both, so much so that Marvel decided to weave the campaign into the new movie trailer.
Best part was without a doubt Ben Carson’s cameo. Cute little feller.
Now, yes, one could obviously argue that there’s bias at play. Someone did after all, make the judgement call to characterize Bernie Sanders Captain America. Bernie. Sanders. Bernie “we need to be more like Europe because America is awful” Sanders. Captain Denmark I’d believe. Captain Norway could be a goldmine franchise for him. But Captain America? Doubt it. Never has a man running for President of the USA held such disdain for the USA as Bernie Sanders.
That being said, Trump as Tony Stark, the egotistical but wildly successful capitalist in “Ironman” who plays by his own rules makes sense. So, I guess what I’m saying is… just laugh a little?
That being said, this parody was way better. Just don’t expect to see it on the nightly shows anytime soon. 😉
