Ellen DeGeneres Delivers Important “Be Kind” Monologue After Internet Blasts Her For Watching Football With George Bush

Strange times we’re living in…

Over the weekend, Ellen was in Dallas for the Cowboys/Packers game and she was spotted yucking it up next to former Republican President George W. Bush.

With Ellen being a self-described “gay, Hollywood, liberal” and George being a “conservative Republican president,” Twitter was quick to remind us all why 2019 is so fucking annoying, blasting Ellen for even associating with George. Because God-forbid you talk to anybody that doesn’t share the exact same beliefs as you.

Now I don’t want to get into politics, because I hate them, but following the backlash, Ellen delivered a much-needed monologue about simply being kind to people. A message that everybody needs to hear.

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. We’re all different and I think that we’ve forgotten that’s okay that we’re all different… Just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them, and 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. Doesn’t matter.”
