Guardians of the Galaxy Director Vows to Resist Donald Trump Until His "Corrupt, Lying @#$ is Gone"

Guardians of the Galaxy Director Vows to Resist Donald Trump Until His “Corrupt, Lying @#$ is Gone”

Posted by June 24, 2018 Comment

The Twitter war between President Donald Trump and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn continued Sunday when Gunn took to Twitter to respond to one of the president’s tweets. Trump sent out a tweet telling his political opponents not to resist (typical democracy stuff), promising that if Democrats agree to strengthen the border (presumably by giving Trump money to build his wall), it will end crime.

Gunn quickly responded, telling the President: no deal!

Gunn then retweeted his own tweet for emphasis and added:

Gunn is experienced at resisting Trump. Gunn recently said that it’s not impossible the president murdered his wife, and has said that he doesn’t care if he loses fans for criticizing the Trump on Twitter every day. Since Trump was elected, he’s been the subject of more of Gunn’s tweets than any other topic:

The most common words in James Gunn’s tweets.

Of course, though Gunn resists on social media, and that could cause some hardcore Trump supporters to avoid Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy films, so far, it hasn’t seemed to have much effect, as Marvel’s box office is bigger than ever. In fact, avoiding Gunn’s movies might actually turn out to hurt Trump more than supporting them. Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter is a friend and major supporter of Trump who donated millions to his campaign and continues to support the president financially and as an unofficial advisor. Though Perlmutter is no longer in charge of Marvel’s movie division, he is one of the largest individual shareholders of parent company Disney. The success of Marvel’s movies, or any of Disney’s movies for that matter, means more money for Perlmutter. More money for Perlmutter means more money for Trump.

Perhaps that’s why James Gunn must ramp up his Trump resistance online, to counteract all of that. Whatever the case, according to Gunn, we can look forward to no shortage of clickbait articles on slow news days about his tweets about Donald Trump. And that’s a policy everyone in the entertainment “journalism” industry can definitely agree on.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
