This is an important message from @TheEllenShow.

Shame she had to say it.

But we’re so divided, that simply laughing with someone from the other side creates an outrage.

If America is ever going to heal—we need to learn the civility of #EllenDeGeneres.
Many of your comments express a total aversion and confusion over the idea of treating a man like George Bush with care and civility.

If you need an example of how that can be accomplished—
take a lesson from this amazing woman.

#EllenDeGeneres #GeorgeWBush
I’m really loving all the replies telling me what Bush did—as if I wasn’t directly affected by his lies.

I’m not making excuses for what he did.

I’m simply supporting the idea of civility—and that it doesn’t have to come with binary conditions.
I have friends and family who voted for and supported George Bush— right through his time in office.

By extension, they’re also responsible.

Should I be an absolutist, and always admonish them in social settings?

I don’t think so.
#BothamJean’s brother hugged his brother’s murderer, and #EllenDeGeneres treated George Bush with civility.

You may view those acts to be abhorrent, but I view them with admiration.

And I fully believe we’d be a better society—if more of us followed their example.
