Chris Evans has got very political overnight and it’s fair to say he’s not too happy with Kanye West’s take on the whole palaver.

After taking in the delights of Saturday Night Live, Captain America simmered with his thoughts and merely felt Matt Damon was ‘hilarious’ as Chris Kavanagh.

That was until he saw the musical guest, Kanye, take to Twitter with a post about his very controversial Make America Great Again hat – which he proudly wore in an off-telecast rant about why he likes Donald Trump.

BGUK_1354499 - ** RIGHTS: WORLDWIDE EXCEPT IN UNITED STATES ** Los Angeles, CA - Kanye West dresses as a water bottle in the first of three performances on Saturday Night Live. On the episode, hosted by Adam Driver,he firstr performed I Love It with Lil Pump. Kanye dressed as a Perrier bottle and Pump was a Fiji bottle as they rapped with Adele Givens projected on a screen behind them. They modified the chorus to, 'You???re such a freaky girl' though Kanye still used profanities throughout the track and had to be bleeped several times. For his second appearance, Kanye brought out Teyana Taylor to play a new song. The song, which leaked earlier this summer, includes the lyrics: ???We got love, love love/You better believe it.??? It appears to features a voice memo from Lauryn Hill, which Taylor previously teased on Twitter. Kanye then performed for a third time as the credits rolled. While wearing a MAGA hat, he invited 070 Shake, Kid Cudi, and Ty Dolla $ign on guitar to play Ghost Town from 'ye'. After the show ended, Kanye stayed on stage and gave a speech to the SNL audience, captured on Chris Rock???s Instagram story. In the clips, Kanye mentions his old promise that he would run for president in 2020. He also addressed his affinity for Trump, saying:

Yeah, defender of the universe Steve Rodgers wasn’t a fan.

Taking to Twitter, he unleashed all his Avengers might on the rapper, by re-tweeting his image, taken on his private jet, of course, matched with Chris’ thoughts.

‘There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue,’ he wrote. ‘The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying.’

It was in response to Kanye’s comment on the MAGA hat: ‘This represents good and America becoming whole again.  We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs.

‘We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love.’

You might think that is a ‘drop mic’ moment for Chris, his words were done, but a couple hours later he followed up his message by adding a quote from American writer and professor Isaac Asimnov.

The quote read: ‘The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge”.’

Chris simply captioned the post: ‘This.’

On Saturday night in New York Kanye was musical guest on the NBC programme alongside host Adam Driver.

At the end of the episode, he took the mic and went on a long-winded rant, claiming he was ‘bullied’ into not wearing the hat.

‘You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me. They bullied me backstage they said, “Don’t go out there with that hat on.” They bullied me backstage. They bullied me,’ he said as show cut to the credits.

Removing his MAGA hat, he continued: ‘And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now.’

He then put the hat back on and said: ‘Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do.’

From dressing up as a water bottle to this ranty rant, seems it’s only the beginning.

Let’s just focus on releasing YANDHI, okay? You can get back to the rest in a bit.
