Trump has been in office for less than a month and has already caused chaos that will take years to undo. Trump’s executive orders have caused an already divided America to be in a total uproar. The executive order on immigration has everyone taking a stand including Hollywood. Recently, comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres decided to break her silence on the matter. Ellen sends a message on immigration that she hopes Trump understands and hears loud and clear.
Ellen is the star and voice of Finding Dory a popular animated hit that debuted last year. Recently, a screening of the film was hosted by Donald Trump and Ellen used this opportunity to teach a much needed lesson on immigration that she hoped Trump didn’t miss. DeGeneres had this to say in the opening monologue of her talk show,
“Dory arrives in America with her friends Marlin and Nemo. She ends up at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall. They all have to get over the wall, and you won’t believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out.”
Ellen joked that she usually doesn’t talk about politics and stated,
“I’m just gonna talk about the very nonpolitical, family-friendly, People’s Choice Award-winning ‘Finding Dory’”.
Ellen continued her monologue with,
“Even though Dory gets into America, she ends up separated from her family, but the other animals help Dory. Animals that don’t even need her. Animals that don’t have anything in common with her. They help her, even though they’re completely different colors. Because that’s what you do when you see someone in need…you help them.”

So, what are your thoughts? Do you think Ellen got her point across? Let me know in the comments.
