Washington, DC – President Trump was ridiculed early Monday when in an interview he asked the hosts and the American public why Captain America: Civil War had to happen. Many historians considered his comments to be inaccurate, offensive and completely missing the point of that conflict.
As people that have seen even a trailer for the film have probably deducted, Captain America: Civil War happened when the United States government started to become concerned with the amount of super-powered people that were running around doing whatever they felt like as long as they called themselves the “good guys.” The U.S. government’s idea to deal with this increase of super-powered people was to create the Registration Act, forcing all super heroes to register with the government and fall under much stricter government regulation when it came to their planet-saving space adventures.
Tony Stark (Iron Man) believed the Registration Act to be a sound decision while Captain America believed it to be a gross misstep that would lead to super heroes being used as weapons. After several heated conversations and even more heated punching fights, Captain America and Iron Man agree to stop punching each other and punch someone else for a awhile, becoming best friends again.
This lack of understanding about the basic plot of the movie leaves many wondering if Trump had seen the film at all. If he had, they argue, they would know that while Captain America: Civil War was a long, bloody battle that had those that were generally on the same side fighting one another, it was a battle that was worth fighting. The decision to register super-powered people is a complicated one, no matter which side you’re on, and if we’re going to figure it out most experts believe the best way to do it is by having a big super-powered people fight.
In the future, if Trump hasn’t seen a movie, experts hope that he will just shut the fuck up about it and let someone else be the President.
