Last Sunday during the Cowboys defeat against the Packers, a shot of the Jones family suite saw former President George Bush conversing with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

This odd couple relationship sent the internet into a tizzy, both at the delight of this wonderful odd couple, and, unfortunately, at Ellen’s “decision” to be friends with W, due to his actions as the 43rdpresident.




Ellen decided to respond to the critics on her show, saying that despite their political differences, she and W are friends.  Ellen said, “We’re all different, and I think we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different,” she continued. “For instance, I wish people wouldn’t wear fur. I don’t like it, but I’m friends with people who wear fur. And I’m friends with people who are furry, as a matter of fact. I have friends who should tweeze more.”

Ellen sums up her friendship with President Bush perfectly saying, “But just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them,” she said. “When I say, ‘be kind to one another,’ I don’t only mean the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone.”
