AceShowbiz - Vince Vaughn is risking his career for a handshake. The "Brawl in Cell Block 99" actor is trending on Twitter after he was photographed getting chummy with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at the College Football Playoff National Championship in New Orleans on Monday, January 13.
Attending the match between the LSU Tigers vs. the Clemson Tigers, the 49-year-old actor was seen sandwiching Melania with Donald. In the photos that circulated online, the "Wedding Crashers" star looked deep in conversation with the POTUS. They even ended their talk with a friendly handshake before the POTUS gave him an affectionate pat on the hand.
Journalist and Burke Communications CEO Timothy Burke took to Twitter on Monday night to share a video of the amicable interaction, writing in the caption, "I'm very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it." Fans quickly responded to it with many declaring their plan to cancel Vince.
"Vince Vaughn has been cancelled," one fan wrote. Another tweeted, "Vince Vaugh [sic]: explain yourself," while someone else said, "Whelp… that tells me all I need to know about Vince Vaughn."
Vince and Donald's friendly chat shouldn't be surprising since he's known as a conservative. He was also caught in a controversy back in 2015, after voicing his disagreement on gun regulation in an interview with the Britis GQ. "Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat," he said.
He even suggested schools shouldn't be a gun-free zone, saying, "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. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."
