Yeah, this is perfect. Inspired by David Duke's Twitter beef with Chris Evans, I wonder?

Frankly, I'm embarrassed for him.

Am I the only one who finds it a little odd to see Magneto next to the Red Skull in the banner? Magneto may be a villain, but a friend to Nazis he is not.

Magneto once asked if the Red Skull had worked for Hitler during WWII. Yes, so Magneto hunted him down, buried him alive and left him to die slowly. (Scans: Captain America #357)

Starving, alone in the dark, the Red Skull contemplated suicide, but a hallucination of Captain America told him not to give up. That's right, even the fever dream of a Nazi version of Captain America is inspirational. (Scans: Captain America #369)

It's more odd to see them standing next to the Joker. But the Red Skull and the Joker have met!

Magneto may be a villain, but a friend to Nazis he is not.

And even the Joker doesn't tolerate Nazis (from 1996's Batman and Captain America)

I've been kind of thinking that now is the time for the original WWII era superheroes to get back to work fighting fascism. Captain America, Wonder Woman et al are widely-recognized symbols of good, they have cultural staying power, and we should never underestimate the persuasiveness of a good story.

Hollywood probably won't be bold enough to make a big-budget anti-fascist movie, but maybe comic book publishers could rev up their story machines? (I'm not into comics and have no idea how that industry works.) I could see a whole slew of readers cheering for Wonder Woman while wearing pink pussyhats, for example.

I'm wondering what the excuse will be next week for weekending somewhere that closes down local airspace, costs the US taxpayers lots of money? it is so far from his support base, it is interesting that he used the campaigning excuse this week, but he's going to run out of excuses soon, no?

I'm struggling to see a Weekending in Luxury superpower he can pull on like a costume.....

Please tell me I'm not the only one who read "rolls" as "trolls" and didn't even blink.
