Twitter erupts after Vince Vaughn spotted in Trump’s booth at college football game


A fiery, reactive debate quickly began on Twitter after television cameras caught actor and comedian Vince Vaughn seated inside a private booth with President Trump and first lady Melania Trump at the college football championship game.

“I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it,” journalist Timothy Burke said, tweeting out footage of the exchange in New Orleans on Monday night.

Burke said in a separate tweet that his initial tweet was about the crowd singing Sweet Caroline during the game, which can be heard in the clip.

“I don’t need a Wedding Crashers sequal [sic] anymore,” another writer and comedian commented.

Sad. Vince Vaughn is one of my favorites. I always knew he was Republican but this, so gross.

I don’t need a Wedding Crashers sequal anymore. https://t.co/QaNcNb889s

Many conservative media pundits came to the actor’s defense, poking fun at critics of Trump for expressing outrage over the incident.

Vince Vaughn showed the sitting president the proper respect. The rest of Hollywood should learn from Vince Vaughn.

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

Journalists and researchers who cover conservative media suggested right-leaning outlets were overblowing the so-called outrage on the Left on purpose.

The weird thing about the “PeOpLe aRe OuTrAgEd AbOuT ViNcE VaUgHn” narrative being pushed really hard right now by conservative media, is that it doesn’t actually seem like there actually are people outraged https://t.co/9RIMzqEVVP

Vaughn is an outspoken libertarian and supported Sen. Rand Paul for president in 2016. His exchange with Trump follows Ellen DeGeneres facing backlash for sitting with former President George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys football game in October.
