Proving he is absolutely worthy of the title Captain America, Chris Evans slammed Donald Trump for not answering reporter questions during a press conference to address COVID-19 on Sunday.
During the press conference, President Donald Trump called a national emergency for COVID-19, then turned and the microphone to Vice President Mike Pence—who is also leading the coronavirus task force—to answer reporter questions.
That did not sit well with Mr. Evans. The actor took to Twitter to share his displeasure.
The president just ran off stage after his rambling press conference without answering a single question. America wants answers. America wants leadership. America doesn’t want a president who runs off stage during a crisis and lets Mike Pence do all the talking.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) March 15, 2020
In a conference that previous Friday, Trump did answer questions, but called a particular question he didn’t like “nasty.” Another reporter asked if he took responsibility for the testing delay, which is where we got the classic soundbite “I don’t take responsibility at all.” It seems Trump learned his lesson for the second conference.
Fans and followers applauded him for calling out Trump for bowing out.

You clearly don't understand or appreciate the vital role an honest leader provides in a situation like this. We're not satisfied because we can't trust a damn thing they say. He's a weak bully w/an oversized ego who cares only abt himself, not us.— Tracee Tomich (@Traceethefirst) March 15, 2020
Evans is well known for making his opinions about Donald Trump public on Twitter.
This is racist, Biff.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) July 15, 2019
The only thing worse than actually being hateful and racist, is casually wielding hate and racism to activate your base in an unrelenting, painfully transparent, and crushingly on-brand effort to soothe your only true devotion: feeding your insatiable ego. https://t.co/WfU1uUp9Ya
‘Help! I’ve never done anything wrong in my entire life, but somehow hostility is at an all time high. Just because I kick beehives all day, it’s not MY fault when people get stung! No one has EVER been treated so unfairly. Sad. Also, where’s Obama’s birth certificate?’ https://t.co/F3iQr0O5xn— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) October 29, 2018
I hope he realizes that when his presidency is over, things WILL come out. The people he considered loyal WILL write books. The way this White House was ran WILL be exposed. It will be immortalized as a circus.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) September 30, 2019
Smart, accomplished, and credible men and women will
To the point where his followers tweet things like this:

But Evans has been awfully quiet lately, and people were starting to get worried.
