WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres' Great Message About Unity
Ellen did what a lot of Americans do this past Sunday.
She watched football.
But she didn't watch at home with just herself or her family. She watched her Green Bay Packers take on the Dallas Cowboys in 'America's Game Of The Week' on FOX while sitting in a box suite at AT&T Stadium. She watched the game sitting next to President George W. Bush.
A lot was made of a Hollywood talk show host sitting next to a Republican president, but Ellen took to her show on Monday to bring us a message we all could use.
Yes, that was me at the Cowboys game with George W. Bush over the weekend. Here’s the whole story. pic.twitter.com/AYiwY5gTIS

She said she's friends with George Bush, and then follows by saying:
"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 OK that we're all different."
"Just because I don't agree with someone on everything doesn't mean that I'm not going to be friends with them," DeGeneres said. "When I say be kind to one another, I don't mean only people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone."
To wrap up her monologue, Ellen finished with a line that's probably hit too close to home for us here at B.
"Even people who are already playing Christmas music. I mean seriously, there's no excuse for that."
Simply put, Ellen's message on her show on Monday is one that all of us, no matter who we are, or what we believe in, should be able to get behind.
By the way, Christmas is only 77 DAYS AWAY! Play that Christmas music!
