We’re undecided precisely what kind of picture Team Trump was attempting to painting, however this actually ain’t it.
Not solely are they evaluating Trump to a genocidal maniac who killed billions of folks, tortured one daughter and murdered one other one, however as many Twitter customers hilarious identified, they’re not even utilizing the proper scene from the proper film.
The scene they’re utilizing really occurs close to the finish of 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame” (the “Infinity War” sequel and the closing film in the collection) when Thanos realizes he’s been tricked and defeated by his superhero enemies earlier than he dies himself.
Y’all know Thanos mentioned that earlier than he misplaced, proper? https://t.co/hhDj51yzyj

There’s a number of ranges of fail right here.
1: You’re evaluating Trump to a genocidal warlord.
2: That similar warlord killed half the universe, tortured one daughter, and murdered the others.
3: This is the scene the place Thanos realizes he’s been tricked and defeated. https://t.co/qV62rVm26i

Meanwhile, Jim Starlin—the man who created Thanos in 1973—mentioned Trump’s staff equating him to a fictional mass homicide is disturbing, to say the least.
“After my initial feeling of being violated, seeing that pompous fool using my creation to stroke his infantile ego, it finally struck me that the leader of my country and the free world actually enjoys comparing himself to a mass murderer,” Starlin mentioned in a assertion.
“How sick is that? These are sad and strange times we are going through. Fortunately all things, even national nightmares, eventually come to an end.”
Sad and unusual occasions certainly.
