Gibson, who doesn’t speak publicly about his political views, appeared to be a few feet away from Trump when he gave the salute.
Fans of the actor called him a patriot, with one Twitter user saying: ‘A true Patriot! Not afraid like the other Hollwood spineless!’ while another added: ‘Mel Gibson, always the Patriot’.
A third said: ‘Mel Gibson is a Patriot who literally played The Patriot. Wokesters hate him because the only thing they salute is their tall latte they stapled a dress on and put their d*** in.’
