Actor Vince Vaughn is the latest target of liberal outrage after he was spotted Monday chatting with President Trump (Gasp!) at the College Football Playoff National Championship game in New Orleans.
Video posted online showed actor and Trump engaged in a short conversation in the stands - seconds at most - before the two men shake hands and Vaughn leaves.
Here's the video that broke a million liberal hearts:
I'm very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it. pic.twitter.com/ELMbDHZbZq— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) January 14, 2020
I know what you're thinking: "Crucify him! Crucify him!"
The video quickly went viral; Twitter users more or less demanded that Vaughn be doused in gasoline and set ablaze; it was a typical day on social media for the 'woke.'
Editor's Note: You simply MUST read the comments from Twitter users. They run the gamut from clinically insane to even MORE full-blown psychotic.
It's not like Vaughn hasn't been active in supporting Republicans. He backed Sen. Rand Paul's presidential campaign in the 2016 Republican primary, and in 2008 and 2012, he backed Paul's father, former Rep. Ron Paul in the GOP presidential primaries.
WIBC host Tony Katz commented on the hysteria Tuesday morning:
"I regret to inform you that Vince Vaughn is now canceled because he shook hands with President Trump. This is how social media works; it's the same thing they did to Ellen Degeneres when she had a conversation with George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys game. We can't even have a conversation anymore without people saying, 'You're out!.'
"You're going to decide that Vince Vaughn is unacceptable because he had a conversation with the President? Cancel culture is not about anything other than politics. It's not about whether somebody did something wrong; it's about whether somebody in a particular political party did something wrong.
"We should be able to have conversations with people. That's how we learn and grow, and people who want to stop speech aren't good for free speech."
