    The source claimed that the couple, who were staying at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort over the Christmas holidays, left abruptly, although the reason for their exit remains unclear.

    Once People shared the article on its Twitter account, one follower weighed in, saying that his friend saw the couple in the cinema:

    Some social media users said that they were not surprised to learn the news:

    One netizen, however, defended the couple, claiming that the movie wasn’t good…

    …while another suggested that they may have had an emergency situation:

    A fellow Twitterian, on the other hand, recommended that other netizens watch the movie, which tracks Cheney from the Nixon years to the Bush-era:

    Christian Bale has already taken home two awards for his role as Dick Cheney: during his somewhat provocative acceptance speech at the Golden Globes for Best Performance in a Comedy, the British actor thanked none other than Satan for giving him the “inspiration” to play the former vice president.

    He won a second prize a week later, picking up the Critics’ Choice Awards for best actor and best actor in a comedy film.

    “I guess time sort of allows it to be considered a comedy, but it’s really a tragedy”, Bale said.

    Cheney served as the 46th vice president of the United States from 2001 to 2009, and played a crucial role in shaping the country’s “War on Terror” doctrine following the 9/11 attacks. Cheney also made multiple public statements claiming that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and alleged links between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda to justify the US-led invasion of the Mideast country in 2003.
