Chris Evans was in Washington, D.C. this week to talk about his upcoming political website “A Starting Point,” which will aim to teach people complex political concepts through short School House Rock style videos.
While there, the LGBTQ ally and outspoken critic of Donald Trump met with a number of lawmakers and politicos. Including… Senator Ted Cruz???
The antigay Texas Republican tweeted a picture of himself with Evans, along with the caption: “Just sat down for an interview w/ @ChrisEvans. Really nice guy. Caroline came up to DC to meet him. Almost nothing in the Senate impresses an 11-year old; introducing her to Captain America was pretty awesome!”

Evans told Wired last month that he co-founded “A Starting Point” after finding himself confused when trying to understand the political news of the day. He says the project will “create informed, responsible, and empathetic citizens” and “reduce partisanship and promote respectful discourse.”
People have had mixed reactions to Evans’ awkward photo op with Cruz…
Ag, no! @ChrisEvans. Disappointed but not surprised

Chris Evans is a liberal who is a loud Trump critic. I have faith that if he sat down with Ted Cruz, it was for a sound reason.

I’m sure it was exciting for Chris to meet the Zodiac Killer.

Has he stabbed you in the back yet?

Did someone warn @chrisevans that this will get him cancelled? I mean, someone in Hollywood can’t be seen fraternizing with the enemy.
In all seriousness, good for him though. Disagreement shouldn’t preclude discussion.

People trying to excuse Chris Evans for talking smiling photos with Ted Cruz like he isn’t my senator and I’m not painfully aware of who is and the horrible things he’s done. pic.twitter.com/Ei9zB2hpNY
