During his presidency, Bush faced condemnation for leading the country into war with Iraq and Afghanistan. Not just that he even opposed gay marriage while in office. After the pictures of them together went viral on social media, Ellen DeGeneres addressed the controversy on her show saying, “People were upset. They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president? When I say, ‘Be kind to one another,’ I don’t only mean the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone. Doesn’t matter.”
