The following article contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

The wildly popular Avengers franchise got a political spin on Tuesday in a video from President Donald Trump's reelection campaign featuring disintegrating Democrats and Trump as the super villain Thanos.

The video shows Trump as Thanos claiming "I am inevitable" before snapping his fingers, causing Democratic House leadership to dissolve while announcing articles of impeachment against him.

Watch below.

The video is supposed to echo the GOP talking point that Democrats have sealed Trump's victory in 2020 by bringing forth articles of impeachment against Donald Trump.

However, portraying Trump as Thanos—an intergalactic menace who wipes out half the living beings in the universe before his ultimate defeat—may not have been the best metaphor.

Then again, it may have been accidental perfection.

People couldn't stop pointing out that the moment depicted in the video is right before Thanos is humiliated and defeated.

This isn't the first time Trump and his team have tried and failed to use pop culture to their advantage. Trump himself tweeted a poster of himself a la HBO's Game of Thrones last year, before bringing it to a cabinet meeting. HBO later rebuked him for it.

Marvel has yet to respond to the Trump campaign's video.

Since the start of his campaign, President Donald Trump's support among Black voters has remained pitifully low.

Despite claims that he's the "least racist person" alive, Trump told four Congresswomen of color to "go back" where they came from, defended unapologetic white supremacists, put forth racist immigration policies, and currently employs at least one white nationalist in the White House—and that's just during his presidency.

Since her upset primary victory in the summer of 2018, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her progressive agenda have become a favorite target of the Right wing.

The party that claims to champion people who "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" often derides Ocasio-Cortez's former career as a bartender in Manhattan—a position she took after college when her father's death put her family in dire financial straits.

Two months after it emerged in Wuhan, China, the coronavirus has spread throughout Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, North America, and sub-Saharan Africa with nearly 84,000 cases worldwide.

The United States is scrambling to prepare for an outbreak that officials have deemed inevitable—but President Donald Trump and his staff are saying the concern is overblown.

All too often, words seem insufficient to describe the latest scandal or atrocity from the administration of President Donald Trump.

That's usually when The New Yorker steps in.

Famous for its headline-free covers, illustrators have perfectly captured the administration's mob-like tendencies or the subservience of once respected Senators to Trump's every whim.

The State Department is responsible for not only foreign relations and embassy operations outside the USA, they also take care of United States citizens and permanent residents when they work and travel in foreign nations.

In response to natural disaster, political unrest or pandemics, the State Department does whatever necessary to safely evacuate USA citizens and residents while mitigating any risks to the rest of the population of the country.

At least that's what is supposed to happen.

Despite the growing threat of the rapidly-spreading coronavirus, President Donald Trump has taken repeated steps to dismiss the need for widespread drastic action to contain an outbreak in the United States that experts have deemed inevitable.

But how could a President possibly benefit from being cavalier about a pandemic?
