CNN commentator compares Donald Trump to an X-Men villain, makes some good points

Whether you love or loathe Donald J. Trump, there's no denying that there are plenty of Americans out there these days comparing him to supervillains.

But tonight on CNN's ongoing coverage of the latest round of presidential primaries, commentator Van Jones took the practice to a new nerdy level by linking the Republican frontrunner/real estate magnate/"short-fingered vulgarian" to X-Men villain Sebastian Shaw.

But before Trump's supporters show up in the comments to call the comparison unfair, know that Jones' take played into one of Trump's perceived strengths as a candidate.

"The harder you hit [Shaw], the stronger he gets," Jones told a panel led by Anderson Cooper. "We're gonna see how many bullets [Trump] can eat."
