Ellen degenerate is nothing if not another member of the alphabet perverts.
She makes me puke. She is a very sick woman and it is reversible with shock treatments.

Put some Glasses on her and she looks like my Wife’s 85 Year Old Father. Goodness, how old is she?
Doesn’t she do Cover Girl Makeup Commercials?
Maybe Quikrete needs a Spokesperson.
I liked her Airline Seat routine, the fully upright position.
I find it funny, and I think the real racists are the people whose minds immediately went to race. That said, Ellen is a card carrying member of the liberal media/Hollywood who are the biggest promoters of “social justice.” She found out that she is not immune from the same standards that they use to go after people - usually conservatives. She is being hoisted on her own petard - a victim of the identity politics espoused by her fellow liberals.
In my opinion not racist, merely inane.
I take great pleasure in this! All of her excuses are essentially, "But I'm a Liberal!" I.e., "Give me a pass, because I have the 'right' political orientation!" Implying that if a Conservative were to have done this, he should still be lambasted.
