Amongst the usual one-liners there were a few home truths she wanted to get across.

"Eagle-eyed fans spotted the comedian sitting next to the former president during Sunday's matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers".

DeGeneres interviewed Bush on her chat show in 2017.

Well, that was enough to set folks on fire (on social media).

DeGeneres, a Packers fan and friend of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, went on to discuss her interaction with the former president.

But what people remained focused on was that DeGeneres was smiling and laughing it up with a politician who previously attempted to make gay marriage unconstitutional. "I'm friends with George Bush", she said.

Comedian-host Ellen DeGeneres has defended her friendship with George W. Bush, after facing backlash for a photograph with the former U.S. president. "We're all different and I think that we've forgotten that that's OK".

Stephanie Meadow retains LPGA Tour card after dramatic finish in Texas
She wanted to dedicate her first victory to her late brother, Brandon, who died in a vehicle accident when Cheyenne was just 12. Having made a fast start to the week with an opening round of 63, Meadow faded slightly following rounds of 71 and 73.

This shift from "accepting the existence of different views" to "acceptance of different views", from recognizing other people's right to have different beliefs or practices to accepting the differing views of other people, is subtle in form, but massive in substance.

She likened hanging out with Bush and his wife, Laura, to being friends with "people who wear fur", and went on to cite her signature on-air sign-off: "Be kind to people".

After saying she didn't like wearing fur but was friends with people who wore fur, and joked that she was friends with "people who should tweeze more", DeGeneres added she wouldn't avoid being friends with people because they don't agree on everything.

"When I say, 'Be kind to people, ' I don't just mean 'be kind to people who think the same way you do.' I mean 'be kind to everyone'". "I mean be kind to everyone". In 2019, she supported a boycott of hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei after the country announced it would issue the death penalty on those convicted for having gay sex.

Eventually, the 61-year-old comedian made her point.

Noting that it is normally not unusual for a celeb to attend a sporting event, it was a big deal for her to be seen there because, she joked, "I never leave my house". "I mean, seriously, there's no excuse for that".

Mr Bush also entered the USA into a war with Iraq and Afghanistan under the later-disproved belief that they possessed weapons of mass destruction. They sat in Jones's box, and DeGeneres ended up seated next to former President Bush.
