Ellen DeGeneres struck a chord that will certainly resonate in the heart and heartland of America. Let me sum it up: “We don’t need to agree, to be friends. We just need to agree to be friends.”
Listen to her wonderful monologue, responding to the horror of a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to, and enjoying a laugh with, none other than George W. Bush.
I am waiting for the cancel culture to come for her.
I hope they don’t, but I expect they will, once they get past their initial confusion. Being friends with those with whom you don’t agree politically or spiritually or on social issues is anathema to the cancel culture, where mere echoes of words you tweeted in years past can lose you your future.
All the raging tweets in the world, and all the newscasts on all the cable networks combined can’t reach the number of hearts that a simple monologue by a comedian loved across the spectrum of Americans just did.
Thank you, Ellen. I would be your friend.
