Over the weekend, Twitter was in a tizzy over a photo of LGBT talk show host Ellen Degeneres looking chummy with former President George W. Bush while enjoy the private box at a Dallas Cowboy's game. While many people were annoyed at this display, most assumed that Degeneres didn't have a choice where she was sitting and was being polite.
However, Degeneres decided to double down on the criticism and give a self-righteous monologue about how she and Dubya were indeed friends and that people should just get over their differences and be nicer to one another. This caused a massive online debate, with many people explaining that Bush has caused a massive amount of harm to many, many people through the Iraq War, the delayed response to Hurricane Katrina, and his anti-LGBT policies. This wasn't just a situation where you were nice to your racist grandpa at Thanksgiving.
