Michelle Obama doesn’t want you to think that she has an agenda, in any way, shape, or form. But for all her talk about unity and being “an open-hearted nation,” she can’t resist the typical liberal complaints about the Trump administration. In the same vein, Ellen Degeneres, who denies being political, also cannot avoid slamming conservative politics on her show. When Ellen told Michelle Obama that “I feel like the world is a very scary place right now,” the former First Lady responded, “People are afraid … about the direction of the country.”
In an interview with Hoda Kotb for Monday’s NBC Today, liberal talk show host and prominent Hillary Clinton booster Ellen DeGeneres laughably claimed “I’m not like a political person in any way.” Rather than challenge that absurd declaration, Kotb simply fawned: “Despite her stand against having President Trump on her show, Ellen doesn’t shy away from using her platform to comment on his policies.”
Talking to actors Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks about the Golden Globes on her show Tuesday afternoon, host Ellen DeGeneres could not wait for Oprah Winfrey to run for president in 2020. Dubbing the liberal media mogul “our future president,” DeGeneres urged her guests to join in the sycophantic praise.
Hillary Clinton’s seemingly endless book tour stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres show on Friday. And even for the liberal entertainer, the questions were over the top. DeGeneres turned to the woman who lost the 2016 election to wonder if Donald Trump can “last” four years. She also wistfully highlighted the plan to do the show from the Clinton White House.
Eminem’s rap lyrics used to be called “sexist” and “promoting rape.” Now it’s applauded as “beautiful” and “strong.”
On Wednesday, syndicated daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres told NBC’s Megyn Kelly that she would refuse to have President Trump on her show because “There’s nothing I’m going to say to him that’s gonna change him and I don’t want to give him a platform because it just...validates him.”
Ellen DeGeneres on Friday proved yet again that tolerance is a one way street for liberals. Appearing on the Today show, she told Matt Lauer that Donald Trump would not be invited on her show. Within seconds, the talk show host urged tolerance of ideas that may disagree with our own. Lauer failed to point out the galling hypocrisy in these two statements.
Twenty years ago today, Ellen DeGeneres revealed her sexual identity on network TV. In 1997, the media climate was not nearly as welcoming to LGBT people as it is now; however, as proven by the countless articles published commemorating her bravery, times have clearly changed. Today, LGBT content is not only accepted, but celebrated.
Even Ellen’s a bit baffled by “gender fluidity” and preferred pronouns. In a March 20 interview with actress Asia Kate Dillon, the lesbian show host discussed the confusing concept of identifying as “non-binary.” “I think people assume just because I’m gay I understand all this,” she quipped.
Celebrities have been protesting Donald Trump’s administration regularly since the inauguration. This week, transgender issues have been the focus of their energy. Last May, the LGBT community rejoiced when President Obama directed public schools to allow transgender students to use the restrooms of their choice. But on Wednesday, the Trump administration announced that it would roll back that policy, shifting sovereignty on the issue to the states.
Ellen DeGeneres likes to say she doesn’t “get political” when it comes to her daytime talk show, but you’d never know it considering her show has been used as a platform for Democrats and their agenda over the years.
As if the media hasn’t fawned over President Obama’s “legacy” enough, NBC did so again Sunday night, promoting an over-the-top farewell video from the White House. In the video, celebrities and activists gush over their “favorite Obama moment” in the past 8 years. The answers ranged from the trite to the controversial, from climate change to Michelle’s fashion, from Obamacare to healthy school lunches.
