Cruz ‘impresses’ his daughter with Chris Evans meeting

Twitter

Sen. Ted Cruz is joining forces with a superhero — getting some face time with “Captain America” star Chris Evans at the Capitol.

The Texas Republican tweeted on Wednesday that he met with the 38-year-old actor, managing to score some major cool dad points with his excited daughter.

The star power-filled sitdown was part of Evans’s forthcoming political website, a Starting Point. The mission for the site that Evans — a vocal critic of President Trump — is co-founding is to create “informed, responsible and empathetic citizens.”

ITK hears Cruz is a big-time “Captain America” and “Avengers” fan, even going so far as to name his Anheuser-Busch brew “Ale-vengers” when he participated in a congressional beer competition last year.
