Ellen DeGeneres Criticized For Sitting Next to Republican George W. Bush

(WKOW) — It didn’t take long for Twitter to explode with disapproval during Sunday’s Cowboys-Packers game when Ellen DeGeneres was spotted sitting next to former President George W. Bush.

Why would Ellen, a gay, liberal entertainer sit with and share a laugh at a football game with a conservative former president who opposed gay rights, people asked?

And those were some of the nicer comments.

On her show Tuesday (airing on WKOW TV at 4 p.m.) DeGeneres addressed the controversy.

DeGeneres said she and her wife, Portia de Rossi, were invited to the game by Charlotte Jones, wife of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

She said she was secretly rooting for the Packers, because she is a friend of QB Aaron Rodgers.

“I’m friends with George Bush,” she said in her monologue for today’s show. “In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have.”

“When I say be kind to one another, I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do, I mean be kind to everyone.”

DeGeneres went on to thank the Jones’s for having her at the game.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

"He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

President of The United States of America, Mr Donald Trump

Imagine being so fucking insular that you don't have friends you disagree with about anything political.

I'm a Western Canadian who's more or less pretty Liberal(socially at least) and I'm good friends with a guy who lives in Lousiana who voted for Trump. What? We're not allowed to be friends? We get along great, but I guess only single issues matter to some people.

It's a football game. Who cares?

Sitting next to a war criminal and person who actively wanted to change the constitution to promote inequality against you should be called out.

Yes, we can all have friends who are opposite in our political persuasions. But don't laugh alongside someone who pushed to ban you from getting equality or laugh with war criminals when you're a known virtue signaller.

Bush is a terrorist? Or do you mean the war on terror?

On thé other side, there are quite a few people who are asking why the President would be associating with a homosexual. So the outrage is all over.

However, it is absolutely ridiculous BS. There is nothing wrong with having friends that don’t necessarily agree with you politically. I’m married to a woman who is the total opposite of me when it comes to political opinions. It works as we love each other anyway.
