Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Bell, And Mark Ruffalo All Chimed In On Ellen’s Friendship With George W. Bush
Unsurprisingly, Ellen Degeneres’ recent defense of her friendship with former President George W. Bush elicited a wide variety of responses. Since she framed their friendship as something that “Will Give You Faith in America Again” instead of the perhaps more honest “I’ll be friends with whoever the fuck I want”, Ellen made it easy for people to side with her. Because who doesn’t want to make the crushing anxiety, anger, and dread of #thesetryingtimes just go away! Even for a minute. But these days, much as MAGA is an illusion, so is FIAA (Faith in America Again). Some of Ellen’s Celebrity Defenders (coming this Fall to Fox!) like Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Bell, caught shit for falling for Ellen’s Pollyanna line.

Barbara Bush, one of George W. Bush’s twin daughters, has always been known as the private, questionably LIBERAL HEATHEN daughter of the former president (ok, fine, she does a ton of charity work and was in a commercial to legalize gay marriage in New York back in the day). While her sister Jenna Bush hams it up on Today and keeps us up-to-date on her life with social media, Babs the younger has a private account on Instagram (the horror!). Today, Barbara, who is the CEO of Global Health Corps, let us all know through a celebrity weekly that she had a secret relationship and married the fella this weekend at the Bush compound in Maine.

TBS’ Full Frontal host, Samantha Bee, put on a “NOT The White House Correspondents Dinner” show in Washington, D.C. last night. To augment the huge amount of “EFF POTUS” comedy, one of the highlights was Will Ferrell doing his impression Dubya again.
Back in the day, former president George W. Bush was one of Will’s most popular bits when he was on Saturday Night Live. Speaking for myself, I actually preferred Will and Rachel Dratch as tantric college professor LOV-AHS in the HAW-TUB, but I know, I’m weird.
