Why Chris Evans Just Called Trump a 'Pile of Garbage with a Butthole for a Mouth'

Meghan McCain may have given a more subtle reaction, too.

Donald Trump has infuriated Captain America again.

Chris Evans, the Marvel star who has become one of the president's fiercest critics in Hollywood, tweeted Tuesday morning a decades-old video of Trump questioning Arizona Senator John McCain's war hero status made his "blood boil." And he threw in a creative insult for good measure.

"This really makes my blood boil. John McCain risked his life for this country and was tortured for FIVE F--KING YEARS," he tweeted. "Meanwhile, this pile of garbage with a butthole for a mouth got FIVE DEFERMENTS. How can ANY veteran or active service member defend this shameful irreverence?"

The video in question is Trump's 1999 interview with Dan Rather -- also a regular Trump critic, but a bit more eloquent in his commentary -- during his first campaign for the presidency as a candidate for a third party.

"He was captured," Trump said at the time. "Does being captured make you a war hero? I'm not sure, I don't know."

Trump infamously echoed that sentiment in 2015 when he flatout refused to recognize McCain as a war hero.

"He’s not a war hero," Trump said at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa. "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured."

Meghan McCain may have spotted the old interview making the rounds on Twitter, too, as she simply retweeted an ABC News article titled, "What John McCain Went Through as a POW."
