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? I have a little inkling, so keep scrolling to see the controversial reasons behind it...

The two were joined by their respective wives in the private suite.

That was enough to set audiences off."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.

And we know Ellen to be a prominent member of the LGBTQ+ community.
