When you think of unlikely duos, who immediately comes to mind? Kanye West and Donald Trump? Maybe Snoop Dog and Martha Stewart? There are a handful of weird pairings but, I bet you didn’t see this one coming.

George Bush and Ellen Degeneres.

Yes. The former President of the United States and the popular talk-show host sat together at an NFL game. The mere thought has left the internet deep in thought. Why? Well, now Ellen has taken to Twitter to defend hanging out with Bush…

And that’s exactly what this particular famous pair have done.

You might not think it’s a big deal but apparently, the internet has decided, it is a big deal.

According to USA Today, the duo took their seats in the “House that Jerry Built” and were briefly shown on the big-screen.

“Why?” I hear you ask. I have no bloody idea. But then I thought about it. And a few minutes later, it all made sense.

It has now received over 8.4K likes with the whole of Twitter tweeting about the strange interaction.

But do you see what I mean when I said the whole of the internet is in flames?

I mean, nothing could make me want to sit through an entire game. Not even Ellen and George.

It seems a bit hypocritical to me… Keep scrolling to see why.

Some people are pretty dedicated to the unlikely duo.

Because it’s slightly problematic…

During the 2004 re-election, Bush decided he was going to push law named: Federal Marriage Amendment which stated that a marriage could only take place between one woman and one man. This meant that same-sex marriage was essentially banned.

So this friendship seemed like it was going to be an unlikely alliance, which it was.

That caused many problems for the more secular Republicans of the nation and of course, the Democrats as a whole.

Some have called to cancel Ellen and her wife Portia, but as we can tell from when Bush appeared on The Ellen Show as a guest, the two had been friends for a while. However, generally, I do not stan this pairing. But we do stan friendship. So take from that what you will.

After clearly seeing all the backlash, the host clapped back on her show.

“In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different. And, I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different. “Just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean I’m not gonna friends with them.”

She couldn’t care less about what people think.
