WATCH: Vince Vaughn & President Trump Shake Hands on National TV
Actor Vince Vaughn is enduring cancel culture at their finest after he was seen on national TV shaking hands and nicely talking to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
Vaughn and Trump’s human exchange occurred during the Clemson vs LSU National Title Game. The tragic event of two people politely greeting one another came only an hour after another tragedy: The Superdome crowd erupting into “USA” chants as President Trump and wife Melania walked onto the field for the National Anthem.

The few minutes of non-divisiveness felt unsettling to many across the Internet who cherish every second of frivolous hatred. The sight of polite Americans enjoying conversation at a fun event burns in the souls of many of feel they are the appointed leaders of bitterness.
So do Swingers and Wedding Crashers get taken off the air for all of eternity now after Vince Vaughn had a civilized conversation with the president at the Superdome tonight?

Although it may sometimes seem as if the majority rule is some bitter sect of our society, the truth is, most Americans are normal. Many of us are able to communicate politely even when our political viewpoints differ greatly. In the case of Vaughn, the Wedding Crashers star has been seen with Ron Paul in the past and is a Republican. It’s unlikely that he cares what any detractors think about his greeting with Trump and Melania.
The exchange between Trump and Vaughn comes just a week after comedian Ricky Gervais slammed Hollywood’s elites for hypocrisy at the Golden Globes.
