Ellen Degeneres is a bubbly talk show host that usually is pretty liberal and a member of the LGBTQ community. But that didn’t stop her from having a good time at a football game and it shouldn’t. The MSM and libs believe she betrayed them as she enjoyed the company of former president George W. Bush. Degeneres did not plan on sitting next to the former president. It just so happened that he was given or paid for the seats next to hers. She had received her tickets as a gift. So after the initial outcry from libs, Degeneres addressed the outrage in her typical manner with kindness.
“Here’s the thing: I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have,” DeGeneres stated. “We’re all different and I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different… but just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them.”
“When I say, ‘Be kind to one another,’ I don’t mean only to people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone. Doesn’t matter.”
But The Vanity Fair and many libs felt that’s not a good enough reason.
“DeGeneres is not the first celebrity to aid Bush’s postpresidency rebrand…But there’s something especially on-brand about DeGeneres’s plea for unconditional kindness; she’s made her name as a bubbly talk show host slash celebrity whisperer who can befriend just about anyone. But the continued backlash against DeGeneres—even after her address—is also a sign that such a brand is incompatible with reality.”
Actor Mark Ruffalo also disagreed with Ellen.
“Sorry, until George W. Bush is brought to justice for the crimes of the Iraq War, (including American-lead torture, Iraqi deaths & displacement, and the deep scars—emotional & otherwise—inflicted on our military that served his folly), we can’t even begin to talk about kindness.”
So liberals wanted Ellen Degeneres to spit in Bush’s face? They are being ridiculous. Kudos to Degeneres for proving to be a good person that sees beyond her party’s BS. The Vanity Fair, Ruffalo, and the many outraged libs could learn a thing or two from Ellen.
