The video doesn't include any audio of their conversation - it does feature a rendition of "Sweet Caroline" that's oddly well timed to fit the back and forth - but the actor can be seen nodding and smiling as Trump reaches out to shake his hand.

On Monday night, Twitter was sent a-flutter after photographs and video footage showed Vaughn enthusiastically catching up with President Trump and the First Lady at a college football game in New Orleans. Politically, he is an outspoken libertarian.

"I'm not angry about Vince Vaughn, just profoundly disappointed".

In reaction, people who said Vaughn was one of their most favorite actors disavowed him, calling his meeting with Trump "gross." "I'm very supportive of Ron Paul, but I've always been, you know, more conservative than not". While liberal users remarked that "Vaughn has never really made a secret of his conservatism", far-right pundits slammed their left-leaning counterparts for being "perturbed by three adults interacting in a civil manner".

In the wake of the controversy, a rep for Vaughn told People magazine that he and Trump did not attend the championship together.

Midfielder Fernandes, 25, scored twice as Sporting beat Vitoria Setubal 3-1 in the Portuguese top flight on Saturday. They were not impressed with any of United's suggestions, which is what is holding up the deal.

Daytime talk show host Ellen Degeneres was spotted sitting beside former president George W. Bush at an National Football League game in early October a year ago.

As many pointed out already, Vaughn's political leanings have been no secret.

"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 to protect themselves or move money from here to there, that you realize that you wake up with corruption and without the unintended consequences you'll wake up with a lot of problems that didn't exist prior".

And while he looked friendly with Trump, Vaughn backed Republican Rand Paul in the 2016 election rather than the president. He said, "Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat".
