Is Trump a Marvel fan? Thor's hammer among moving out items, Internet says they'll 'boycott all Avenger films'
The Electoral College may not have considered him worthy, but President Donald Trump has his very own Mjolnir, as it turns out. Movers were spotted around the White House emptying out the personal effects of the Trump administration, and amongst them was a mover who carried a replica of Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) signature hammer, personalized for Trump.
Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, is a major part of the Thor mythology. Commissoned by Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and forged from the dwarven Uru metal, the hammer could famously only be picked up by those who were worthy of it, granting the bearer the power of Thor. The hammer was most recently wielded in a landmark film moment by Captain America (Chris Evans) in 'Avengers: Endgame'. Trump appears to be enamored enough with the prop that he bought his own. It's unknown whether or not the hammer is an official Marvel prop, or if Trump simply had a replica manafactured.
Accordign to TMZ, the hammer was spotted on the shoulder of one of the movers on January 15. One of the more notable aspects is the fact that the word 'Trump' is engraved on the side of the hammer. With President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration only days away, a lot of moving activity has been seen going on at the White House, of which the hammer is only one. Others have spotted a bust of Abraham Lincoln and a mini baseball bat in storage boxes marked 'Presidential Library Gifts.'
'Thor' fans online are derisive, calling Trump "unworthy" of lifting the hammer. "Lemme guess, he wasn’t able to lift it himself. #unworthy," wrote one user. "Donald Trump is not worthy in Odin's eyes to lift Mjolnir. This is defo a fake version smh," wrote another.

In other fans' eyes, this raises a huge number of questions. "Someone gave Trump a Mjolnir replica with his name engraved on it? Was it from Ike Perlmutter? Did he also have Cap's shield in there? Did he get off on believing he was worthy? So many questions," one user asked. Other fans bemoan the fact that they're going to have to boycott Marvel movies now that Donald Trump is a fan, writing, "Who gave him that let me find out we gotta boycott all avenger films too now got dammit." Another user wrote, "Thor called. He wants his hammer back."

There has been much activity in and around the White House in recent weeks, as Trump and his administration prepare to leave before Biden's inauguration on January 20. The White House has left things a bit late, especially as since the election on November 3, the Trump administration has refused to concede the election to Biden, claiming baseless widespread voter fraud. Given that Trump recently was impeached for the second time, it appears that he can't leave the White House fast enough. As Trump packs up and heads out, it's clear that he's not about to leave anything behind - especially replicas with his name marked on them.
