Another day, another Twitter conspiracy!
According to some, Mel and Vince’s facial expressions seemed to convey they were either bored, not impressed, and/or annoyed with Streep’s words. It’s kind of a stretch considering the pair seemed to be just sitting there and listening… like everyone else in the audience.
Obviously, the theory bemused republicans lik
e man baby conservative pundit Tucker Carlson, who cited it as an example of how not everyone is impressed with the so-called Hollywood liberal elite.
Tucker ranted to Fox News:
“Here you have a rich and entitled person describing herself as an outsider, an outcast. Look, she doesn’t like Trump, that’s totally fine, lots of people don’t. You’re allowed to feel that way, but what I was so struck by is she was telling a crowd exactly what they wanted to hear. She was saying things that are totally uncontroversial within the context she was speaking. That’s the least courageous thing you can do.”
Either way, the internet had A LOT of feelings… take a look at some of the reactions (below)!

Tell us how you really feel, Twitter!
As some of you Perezcious readers might now, Vaughn is a libertarian and has championed republican Rand Paul in past. As for Mel, he has a very colorful and Drumpf-esque past — from his controversial film Passion of the Christ to his anti-semitic remarks back in the day, so it’s not a complete stretch to imagine who he voted for in the election.
That being said, neither star has expressed public support for either Donald or Hillary Clinton, so it’s a bit much to assume their political beliefs based on a camera still.
So, what do YOU think?
