This is the most ridiculous bit of outrage. Adults are supposed to be civil and respectful. The guy is on the same room as POTUS and people are crazed because he shook his hand and said hello,? Unreal.

So you think Trump isn't a civil as respectful guy? That's fine, but don't let others behavior define yours. Take the high road, be the better man. That's all Vaughn did, and Twitter went apoplectic. Vaughn may be a second rate actor, but he certainly doesn't deserve this.

That's all Vaughn did,

While true, I also think Vince leans right. So double scoop for him.

Why do liberals get so pissy when one of the people they should "own" (entertainer, black person, etc.) exercises his right to their political opinion?

Get over it, guys.

I surrond myself with liberals, didn't hear a single one every bring up Ellen much less Vince. I'm sure there are a few who do such but not the vast majority of liberals/progressives.

Vince Vaughn has been trending on Twitter all morning and it's mainly conservatives claiming liberals are outraged. Manufactured.

Fox & Friends had a segment on it this morning(breaking news for Fox News) and posted a tweet from an "outraged liberal". Turned out to be a conservative pretending to be an outraged liberal.

I just know that personally, I have always loved Ellen, Vince is ok sometimes funny. Couldn't care less who they converse with. Hell, I've been watching "Ray Donovan" on Showtime lately, great show. John Voight is a big conservative but he is also a great actor, I don't care about his politics.

#13 which is pretty much what happened. How could anyone liberal or conservative, freak out over a person shaking hands with the President of the United States? It's crazy that so many people went all triggered over this. I feel bad for Vaughn. He shouldn't have to try and formulate a response to civilly greeting the President who was seated 3 seats away.

you don't have defense otherwise it would be different.

Oh, and BTW, that accurately describes 10-15 threads on this place at any given time where some brainless douchebag like -------- or the drunken injun post something and it winds up being just like you described only in reverse.

I know it's hard to understand, but some people on both sides are willing to show respect for the office regardless of who occupies it.

A defense for the social media outrage expressed over Vaughn appearing civil with Trump.

Exactly. Meeting any president would be a real cool moment, regardless of party affiliation of any side.

Anyone who commits any sort of negative attention span to Ellen/GWB, Vaugh/Trump, etc, should find a hobby

I realize I originally commented on your post...so that's on me.

but don't talk to me, you ignorant bastard.

You started with accusing me of asking you to defend something, which I haven't, and now you've moved on to accusing me of claiming you troll twitter and make excuses.

You're emotionally and intellectually incapable of talking with me....so stop.

You posted, multiple times, that I would be behaving like rabid dog over this, kind of like you are, if only I could.

I asked you to provide some sort of insight into your many posts on the matter and this far you haven't.

I wonder why..

"cancel culture" and the rest of the leftist outrage mob is the pinnacle of the feminine mindset: make the target an example, a pariah, an untouchable, someone who's pathological and therefore contagious.
all because the target's argument made someone feel a negative feel.

Sounds like Trump's MO as well. But don't tell him. Being the "pinnacle of the feminine mindset" will likely cause him "a negative feel" and set him off.

Yes, I remember Obama trafficking the kids he kept in cages. But I wouldn't exactly call that being treated like a human being. Is this a test of my memory? My knowledge of English? Or just a lame troll?

#29 they didn't take Dylan Roof through the drive through. They brought him food. Number one, food is required for anyone in custody. Withholding food, is called torture, and grounds for dismissal of the case. Why Burger King instead of some nasty jail food? Because if you are trying to get a suspect to talk, I incredibly doubt bringing them crap food when they're hungry is a good way to help that process along.

I'd like to hear Goatman's take on that.
Would Burger King get you to talk?
LOL

Anyway, why do you support waterboarding, and think that isn't torture, if you think simply providing food is the way to get a suspect to talk?
LOL

#41 what possible reason do you have for me supporting water boarding and not thinking it's torture?

Also, crap food is in the eye of the suspect, I imagine. Kids love them some fast food. If you want them to talk, accommodating such small requests is better than clamming them up by bringing them things they don't like to eat.

A couple people on Twitter whined about this and now the right wants to pretend there's some war on Vince Vaughn. Even the thinnest veneer is enough to keep their victimhood complex flaring.

You certainly do. I have never stated that waterboarding isn't torture. It 100% unequivocally is.

Victims of what? In this case, Vince Vaughn is an actual victim. Victim of literally thousands of people on Twitter attacking him over a hand shake. A hand shake with the President of the United States. If you don't think it's normal behavior to shake the hand of ANY POTUS that happens to be in the same room as you regardless of your political differences, that says MUCH about you. Adults should be able to put aside political differences and be able to be civil and respectful too anyone, but especially the President, regardless of how your feel they act.
