Dr Evil reveals he was behind Trump's plans for a border wall!

Austin Powers villain Dr Evil, played of course by Mike Myers, made a guest appearance on an American chat show last night where he revealed he’d been fired from Donald Trump’s cabinet!

Actor Mike Myers revived the baddie – who first shot to fame in the 1997 film Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery – on The Tonight Show last night, hosted by Jimmy Fallon.

Dr Evil revealed that he was hired as an “ideas guy” before taking credit for Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

“The wall. The wall. That was all me. But I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish. And I didn’t want the Mexicans to pay for it. I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it,” declared Dr Evil, with his trademark sinister laugh.

Asked what he planned to do now he’d left Donald Trump’s cabinet, Dr Evil replied: “I’m going to spend some more time being evil to my family. And of course I’ll be promoting my tell-all book, Fire and Fury and also Evil. And more fire and also magma.”

And, then in a final shock, Dr Evil revealed he planned to stand against Donald Trump in the next American election in 2020. He added that he already had his own merchandise ready, including a hat declaring: “Make the world evil again!”.
