Movie star Vince Vaughn — a libertarian who supported Rand Paul in 2016 — was savaged by the leftist Twitter mob for committing the “sin” of speaking to President Trump at yesterday’s LSU-Clemson national championship college football game.
“Tolerant Liberals” immediately attacked Vaughn as a traitor simply because he spoke to the American president for 30 seconds. Many threatened to boycott his films, even though they probably weren’t even fans to begin with.
The brouhaha erupted after former Deadspin employee Timothy Burke posted the video on Twitter with the inane caption: “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”
In the video, Vaughn is seen chatting and laughing with POTUS as First Melania Trump sits in the middle. After a 30-second chat, President Trump warmly shakes Vince’s hand before he leaves.
Vaughn’s friendly interaction with the leader of the free world immediately sent left-wing Twitter into a meltdown.
One triggered leftist tried to insult Vaughn but — like a douchebag — misspelled “douchebag.”
Vince has always been a colossal doucebag

Another fumed: “Since when is it some honor to meet a racist, ignorant moron?”

One “Tolerant Liberal” whined: “I am legit disappointed.”

One outraged leftist (who apparently thinks his tweet is Hollywood edict) fumed: “That man will never work in Hollywood again. Speaking to or supporting that man as President shows you as having no moral center.”
That man will never work in Hollywood again. Speaking to or supporting that man as President shows you as having no moral center.

Perhaps the most interesting and encouraging fallout of all this was seeing Burke’s anti-Trump post get mocked for its immaturity and intolerance.
Jason Howerton of The Blaze lampooned leftist fascists for their over-the-top hysteria.
Howerton tweeted: “It’s an amazing time to be alive when shaking the hand of the president is enough to get you canceled. Vince Vaughn doesn’t strike me as one to give a sh*t fortunately. Y’all have lost your minds. You never learn.”

Vince Vaughn doesn’t strike me as one to give a shit fortunately.

Author Mike Cernovich sarcastically remarked: “I, too, cannot bear to watch a video of two men speaking civilly.”

One Twitter user cooed: “Thoughts and prayers for your suffering.”

Retired baseball player Aubrey Huff — a two-time World Series champ — tweeted: “I love Vince Vaughn even more now…Just because Vince supports the President doesn’t make him less of a man. It actually makes him more of one.”
I love Vince Vaughn even more now. That motor boating son of a bitch. And don’t be such a pussy @bubbaprog just because Vince supports the President doesn’t make him less of a man. It actually makes him more of one. https://t.co/nLVLjL97GZ

President Trump was greeted like a rock star at the LSU-Clemson game, where he was welcomed with raucous cheers and applause.
Chants of "USA" broke out.

“I support people having a gun in public full-stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars. We have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It’s not about duck hunting; it’s about the ability of the individual.”
It’s well known that the greatest defense against an intruder is the sound of a gun hammer being pulled back. All these gun shootings that have gone down in America since 1950, only one or maybe two have happened in non-gun-free zones.”
Vaughn explained that mass shootings almost always occur in “gun-free zones” (like churches, university campuses, and public schools). Why? Because criminals know those are soft targets.
A woman who’s 8 months pregnant used an AR-15 to defend her daughter during a violent home invasion.
At the time, her husband was being pistol-whipped and kicked in the head by two armed burglars.

Vaughn said: “Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenseless human beings. They do not want confrontation. In all of our schools, it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there.”
