Actor Vince Vaughn was seen chatting with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at the NCAA’s College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday night.

A 31-second clip of their interaction was uploaded to Twitter by journalist Timothy Burke. In the clip, the “Wedding Crashers” actor sat down briefly with the president and shook his hand before parting ways to watch the Louisiana State Tigers beat the Clemson Tigers 42-25.

As Vaughn walked away, he waved to Rep. Steve Scalise, who was sitting next to Trump.

The audio of the interaction wasn’t captured. A representative for Vaughn didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for information about the exchange.

As Vaughn’s interaction with Trump went viral, people on social media debated where he should be “canceled” or not.

Former National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch said Vaughn was one of her “favorites” and made a “Wedding Crashers” joke while voicing her support for the actor.

“Back off the canceling, stage five clingers,” she tweeted.

Vaughn has said for years that he is a libertarian. He told Rolling Stone in 2013 that he agreed with Republican and libertarian former Rep. Ron Paul “on most things,” Newsweek reported.

He also supported Paul’s 2008 and 2012 presidential bids, and later supported him at a conference in 2015.

According to The Daily Beast, Vaughn has supported a long list of Libertarian policies in an 2015 interview with Playboy that is no longer available on the internet.

In the interview, he voiced support for permissive gun laws and marriage equality, and opposition to the Patriot Act and unchecked war.

He later reiterated his support for permissive gun laws in a British GQ interview.

“Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat,” he said.

Burke said that since his video of Vaughn and Trump went viral, he’s been receiving death threats.
