President Donald Trump's campaign faltered again as it attempted to make another pop-culture reference.
In the past, the campaign has run into problems when it photoshopped Trump's head on Sylvester Stallone's boxer-body during the film "Rocky," so as to make the president look less obese.
Tuesday, the Trump crew again compared the president to Thanos a.k.a. "The Mad Titan" who wants to kill half of all living things. He ultimately ends up losing when facing "The Avengers."

In the video by the Trump campaign, the Marvel movie is used, delivering Thanos' final speech before he's ultimately killed.

It's unclear what the Trump campaign means by associating the president with an evil villain moments before he dies, but many online speculated it was likely because the Trump campaign didn't see the movie.
"Avengers: Endgame" crushed the box office record at the time with more than 100 million people who saw the film in theaters. Trump only won the election with nearly 63 million people.
