President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attended the college football championship game on Monday between LSU and Clemson.
It didn't take long for unhinged liberals to lose their composure after actor Vince Vaughn was seen meeting with President Trump.
Far-left blogger Timothy Burke was one of the first to break the news, tweeting, “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”
Many other left-wing Twitter users took to the app to announce their disappointment over the handshake between the President and Vaughn.
Vaughn has shared conservative views for much of his career, voicing support for the Second Amendment along with limited government.
Check out what he said to GQ magazine in 2015:
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 the same reason we have freedom of speech. It’s well known that the greatest defence 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. 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 defenceless 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.
Vaughn also opened up on whether or not he thinks teachers should be allowed to carry guns in schools:
Of course. You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do.
And we should be allowed the same rights. Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality.
On big government, Vaughn told The Telegraph that, “I think that as you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything," adding that, “Governments claim to write endless laws to protect us, a law for this, a law for that, but are they working? I don’t think so. The consequences are that there is a staggering loss of freedom for the individual.”
On taxes, Vaughn told Playboy Magazine, “I like the way it was until 1913, when locally you had sales taxes and property taxes. That seems ethical to me, because I can move to a different neighborhood or area if I like the services they provide. To this day, your police department and your fire department are paid for with local taxes, and that makes sense, because you might use those. But the federal government looking into your books to decide what to take from you, that feels wrong.”
