Thursday on “The Ellen Show,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) joked about killing President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, or Attorney General Jeff Sessions if they were in an elevator together. During a rapid fire question “vetting,” host Ellen DeGeneres asked, “If you had to be stuck on an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” Harris quipped, “Does one of us have to come out alive?” DeGeneres put down her cards to clap as Harris laughed.
Just imagine if some Republican Senator had joked about killing then Pres. Obama? Omg.. The media would blow up. But, a Democrat Senator joking about killing Pres. Trump? That’s cool and hip to liberal media personalities like Ellen De Generate, who laughed and clapped and yucked it up. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) needs to apologize publicly, on camera for this NOT cool attempt at humor. Cracking political jokes is fine.. But, joking about killing a sitting president crosses a line.
Ellen DeGeneres says she’s not racist after receiving backlash on social media for posting an edited photo of herself riding on the back of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt. The talk show host said Tuesday on Twitter that she’s “highly aware of the racism that exists in our country” but that’s “the furthest thing from who I am.” DeGeneres posted the photo Monday with the caption: “This is how I’m running errands from now on.” However others defended the daytime TV host. One Twitter user wrote, Ellen Degeneres did not make a racist joke with that picture. Y’all are so annoying turning EVERYTHING into a racial issue. Black people we’ve been through too much to be so sensitive… Every joke made about blacks doesn’t stem from a racist core. Some stuff is just funny, geez!” Another added, “Ellen DeGeneres has never came accross to me as racist, was the pic in poor taste?? Yeah, s–t is too tense right now, but she’s not racist.” Bolt retweeted DeGeneres’ original post. The original photo of Bolt smiling while running went viral following his gold medal win in the 100-meter dash. The comedian frequently posts photos of herself edited into topical moments and scenes from popular films and TV shows.
Oh, this is so rich… To be clear, I’m no big fan of Ellen degenerate. BUT, also to be fair, she clearly didn’t intend to be racist. And, she’s probably freaking out over be called that dreaded “R” word reserved only for white conservatives by the self-righteous, sanctimonious, and hypocritical left. It was just dumb on her part; spectacularly dumb. Good on Usain for taking it in stride (pun intended). But….Just fathom if that had been a white conservative, or white Republican, who had done that.. The dominantly liberal mainstream media would be going absolutely nuts, and wanting he/she punished somehow. But, it’s Ellen…a liberal (lesbian) darling. So, the liberal media are circling the wagons and giving her cover as evidenced here. Just more brazen hypocrisy from the liberal left in the media. Typical…
