Vaughn is best known for comic roles in movies including Swingers, Wedding Crashers and Old School. The men then shook hands and off Vaughn went. But it caused uproar on social media, leading to condemnation of Vaughn from the left - and plaudits from the right.

But others, including Dana Loesch, soon stepped up to criticize people who had a problem with it. In October at a Dallas Cowboys game, DeGeneres sat with former President George W. Bush and stoked outrage among leftists.
