Dr. Evil Announces Congressional Run: ‘Evil Is So In Right Now’
Mike Myers’s Dr. Evil character from the Austin Powers franchise appeared on The Tonight Show to announce a run for congress, jokingly saying he’s the “white Cory Booker.”
“It’s 2018. Evil’s in right now. It’s hip. It’s like playing Fortnite while slamming a Tide Pod and doing the Shiggy Challenge,” he told Jimmy Fallon. “Originally I was hoping for Brett Kavanaugh’s job but Trump said I was too even-tempered for that.”
Dr. Evil added that he’s running for office as an “Eviltarian” as opposed to a Republican or Democrat, with “Make America Evil Again” serving as his campaign slogan. Watch above!
