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…
