It’s OK to be friends

It’s OK to be friends 

“Here’s the thing, I’m friends with (President) 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 we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different.” 

“During the game, they showed a shot of me and George laughing together. And so, people were upset,” Ellen DeGeneres explained on her show Tuesday. “They thought, ‘Why is this gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?'” This was in answer to the criticism concerning a rivalry between identities she received online after she was spotted sitting next to President George Bush on Sunday (October 6, 2019)at the Dallas Cowboys game.

President Bush cheered on her comments. “President and Mrs. (Laura) Bush really enjoyed being with Ellen and Portia (de Rossi) and appreciated Ellen’s comments about respecting one another. They respect her,” his spokesman, Freddy Ford, said in a statement to USA TODAY Tuesday.

  1. I love the story about George Bush and Ellen. We need to turn the clock back to kindness and respect.

    You and I come from different perspectives but we both have many of the same values. YOU are a tribute to your Christianity. You live what Jesus was trying to teach and I admire that so much about you.
