Featured Story 

Ellen and George

In today’s special feature we look at the backlash from the Ellen DeGeneres and George W Bush friendship. 

The Guardian asks should we judge Ellen DeGeneres by the company she keeps? Ellen’s monologue, in which she defends her friendship with the former president and says we should treat everyone with kindness, is an attempt “to paint their friendship as some kind of breaking down of barriers.” The paper says she won support from other celebrities with the exception of Mark Ruffalo, who in their opinion has earned his superhero status. The Guardian says the fact Ellen can be friends with the same man who called for a ban on same-sex marriage, actively supported Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the supreme court is quite something. And adds Mr Bush’s only redeeming quality is that he is not Donald Trump. They say the former president’s legacy is that of war, torture and death on an unimaginable scale. And Ellen’s capacity for niceness is not bridging the gap “as it is pathologically uncritical.”

Forbes says the backlash against Ellen DeGeneres exposed the hypocrisy of Hollywood. They say whilst Twitter can be an unhealthy place, it exposes the hubris of the wealthy and powerful. And the sight of Ellen, an LGBT icon, with the man who refused to acknowledge LGBT hate crimes, seems at odds with her public image. They add the countless innocents slaughtered in the Iraq war including US soldiers were apparently no match for the power of Ellen and George’s friendship, forged in private seats of an NFL game. Forbes describes Ellen’s monologue response as peppered with corny one-liners, bizarre and out of touch. And it spoke volumes about the insulated lives of Hollywood’s stars. The support, from fellow rich and famous friends, only emphasised the point these people are shielded from harmful policies and don’t seem to view the atrocities of war as something worth getting worked up about. 

FOX News says Ellen and George show us how to be tolerant, respectful and kind. They say Ellen deserves praise for practising tolerance and not choosing friends based on how they vote. They add far-left Hollywood and the #Resistance movement and their followers have allowed their political persuasions to extinguish civility, open-mindedness and respect for different points of view. They say the country would be better off if everyone practised the tolerance and kindness shown by Ellen. And all Americans should follow her lead and practice despite political differences. Adding, the US was founded on the notion of freedom in all its forms: freedom of speech, freedom of thought and the liberty to cultivate one’s own beliefs. And on Election Day, Fox News says you should select representatives without prejudice or penalty.
