Chris Evans, the vocal progressive who plays the conservative patriot superhero Captain America, just got a full spread in The Hollywood Reporter. His lengthy interview was comprised of all the topics his Hollywood masters have given him permission to speak about, like how it’s his civic duty to trash talk Donald Trump, or the fact that he’d have to “cut ties” with a Tom Brady movie role, because the star QB may be a literal Trump supporter. Gee, Captain America sure sounds petty.



On Wednesday, former reporter Frank Bruni’s ridiculous extended metaphor linked the Super Bowl, the New England Patriots, Donald Trump, and the American economy in a web of corruption: “The Hell of This Year’s Super Bowl.” The text box: “It’s the Patriots, again, and a metaphor for Trump’s America.” Not to be outdone, Nicholas Kristof wrote the next day that "American tobacco executives have killed more people than Stalin managed to...."



The September 28 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “The Art of the Kneel” featured an interview with the NFL’s Reggie Bush and liberal activist and podcaster DeRay Mckesson. With her liberal white guilt on full display, Chelsea Handler told the two that she is angry with “white people of privilege” who don’t stand up for minorities in this country. “I’m mad that Tom Brady didn’t get down on one knee,” she said.



WASHINGTON — For me the football season begins in mid-December (when everyone becomes serious) and ends at the Super Bowl (when everyone becomes deathly serious). This year it ended with the longest Super Bowl in history. Though I am the epitome of punctuality, I let the season go into the first overtime in Super Bowl history without turning off the television, so I could see whether President Donald Trump's prediction would be vindicated. 



Talk about losing your mind, folks. In a Monday morning post, USA Today columnist Nancy Armour decreed that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady “has some explaining to do” about why he’s friends with President Trump and Brady “no longer gets a pass” for simply associating with him.

 



Journalists are cynical grouches who like dragging people down, suggests author and former Fox News Watch panelist Gabler. The rich and famous are inviting targets, especially if journos sniff a scandal. Take Hillary Clinton and Tom Brady, who in Gabler’s view "have been victims of the media’s strong predisposition to presume guilt, whether there is evidence for it or not."



The downward spiral of China’s economy has sent U.S. stocks plunging wildly. The Dow dropped 1,000 points as the market opened Aug. 24, but stocks were rebounding by midday according to MarketWatch.

MarketWatch reported that day, “Chinese equities surrendered all of their gains for 2015, and a rout in the U.S. on Friday that capped the worst week for the market in four years. Investors are worried about the global implications of a slowdown in China’s economy.”



One day, someone will have to write a book about the topical dexterity of one Donald John Trump.

Fresh off beating the drum for possible constitutional amendments and shouting at reporters over the term “anchor babies,” Donald Trump has seen fit to ally himself with another wealthy and successful achiever in the public eye who is currently in a fight with his own version of “the establishment.”



CBS’s Late Show host David Letterman made a quip during his opening monologue on Thursday that, considering all that’s going on with the New England Patriots and Deflategate, scandal-ridden presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “would be happy to delete” the relevant e-mails and texts for quarterback Tom Brady and the team. 



Rob Lowe took a comical, self-deprecating swipe at himself and Tom Brady Tuesday.

Appearing on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Lowe said he's rooting for the New England Patriots quarterback in the NFL playoffs because "I always support the pretty boys."



The liberal, secular, Tim Tebow-hating media rejoiced Sunday after the New England Patriots soundly defeated the Denver Broncos.

A fine example of the merriment was displayed on the front page of the perilously liberal and secular Huffington Post with the headline "Brady Slays Tebow":
