Actor and producer Vince Vaughn, known for his performances in “Swingers” and “Wedding Crashers” hung out with the First couple during the NCAA football championship game in Louisiana Sunday.
Vaughn is known for his libertarian / conservative stances on most issues and is a staunch 2nd amendment supporter.
Blogger Timothy Burke tweeted the video and added:
I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.
Presumably Burke, who previous wrote for the DailyBeast expected his anti-Trump followers to be disappointed to see the popular actor chummy with Trump and Melania.

Kelly Avery Frye replied “Vince Vaughan just went up a few notches in my book. Imagine being cordial and polite to our President! Gasp! 😱”
A 2013 article from Politico goes into Vaughn’s political views.
Actor Vince Vaughn is one of the few and the proud: an outspoken Hollywood conservative.
The “Wedding Crashers” star opened up about his personal politics in an interview this week with talk show host Adam Carolla.
“Do you count yourself as a conservative?” Carolla asked Vaughn, who has supported former Texas Rep. Ron Paul in the past.
“I do, yeah,” Vaughn replied. “I’m very supportive of Ron Paul, but I’ve always been, you know, more conservative than not.”
He explained: “I think that when you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And that you start to realize when you really go back and look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to sort of think and pursue what they have interest in. And that when you start drawing the lines, saying, as a society, we think this is inappropriate, we’re going to pass laws to protect them from themselves and or take things away … you realize that you wake up with corruption.”
“I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home,” Vaughn said when asked about gun ownership rights in America in an interview with BritishGQ.
