‘Be kind’: Ellen DeGeneres says backlash for sitting with George W. Bush is out of bounds

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close 'Be kind': Ellen DeGeneres says backlash for sitting with George W. Bush is out of bounds

Ellen DeGeneres had a classy response to backlash after fans spotted her with former President George W. Bush at a football game. USA TODAY

Ellen DeGeneres is leveling the playing field.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the comedian sitting next to former President George W. Bush during Sunday’s matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers.

The unlikely duo had many fans throwing a flag on the play. “Ellen, this isn’t just a simple difference of opinion. George Bush, his administration, and his colleagues actively discriminated and worked against the LGBT community,” one Twitter user wrote, while another added, “Really, really low standards there Ellen, and pretty pathetic.”

DeGeneres made light of the situation on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Tuesday, calling for more tolerance and kindness while sharing “the whole story” with her viewers.

“During the game, they showed a shot of me and George laughing together. And so, people were upset,” DeGeneres said. “They thought, ‘Why is this gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?’ “

“Here’s the thing,” she added. “I’m friends with George Bush. 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 OK.”

DeGeneres continued: “When I say ‘be kind to one another,’ I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone. Doesn’t matter.”

She explained that Charlotte Jones, the daughter of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, invited her and wife Portia de Rossi to sit in Jones’ “fancy” suite at AT&T Stadium.

They, of course, accepted because “we wanted to keep up with the Joneses,” DeGeneres quipped.

She said Jones’ “very fancy suite” came with “fancy friends,” including Bush and former first lady Laura Bush. DeGeneres said they all had “so much fun” that afternoon despite their differences of opinions … on football that is.   

“When we were invited I was aware that I was going to be surrounded by people with very different views and beliefs. And I’m not talking about politics. I was rooting for the Packers,” she joked, adding that she hide her Cheesehead Hat in her wife’s purse. 

DeGeneres concluded her message by reminding Bush: “You owe me $6 for the nachos.”

Nick Jonas joins ‘The Voice’ as a coach for Season 18, vows to defeat Blake Shelton

Nick Jonas is joining “The Voice” as a coach for Season 18.

The youngest of the Jonas Brothers announced he is joining fellow singers Blake Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson — but not Gwen Stefani, who will not be returning to the competition series next season.

The news of Jonas’ new gig was announced on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday.

GWEN STEFANI DIDN’T KNOW WHO BOYFRIEND BLAKE SHELTON WAS BEFORE ‘THE VOICE’

Shelton, 43, welcomed the 27-year-old singer to the series in a video clip shared on DeGeneres’ show.

“Nick Jonas! How you doing, buddy?” said Shelton. “I heard that you’re going to be a new coach on ‘The Voice’ and I wanted to, first of all, say congratulations, I guess. But second of all, I wanted to voice some concerns that I have. I’m going to have to look through the rules because this is my TV show. I’m not even sure if you’re old enough to be a coach on ‘The Voice,’ but I’m certain that you’re going to get your butt kicked buddy.”

Meanwhile, Clarkson, 37, said she and Jonas should team up.

“I do definitely feel like the two Texans should maybe team up and form an alliance. I’m just saying,” she said.

Legend, 40, said he wants Jonas’ help to beat Shelton.

“Our mission is to destroy Blake Shelton. We have to form an alliance — me, you, Kelly. We team up, we beat Blake, nothing else matters. Deal? See you soon.”

Jonas told DeGeneres he’s “so excited” to join “The Voice” and then shared a message for Shelton.

“Just to be clear, Blake, I’m going to kick your a–. I think Kelly’s point about forming an alliance might make sense, and John, I love you, but we need a side conversation to figure some things out.”

CNN analyst says Trump has ‘finger on the pulse’ of voters with Syria withdrawal plan

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Erdodgan-THUMB CNN analyst says Trump has 'finger on the pulse' of voters with Syria withdrawal plan fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/media fnc David Montanaro article 365ede25-5138-579d-af91-d8abc10f3adc

President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria may be a political winner, despite the national security implications and harsh criticism from Capitol Hill, a CNN legal analyst argued Monday.

Reacting to a montage of news headlines blasting Trump for his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria ahead of a planned invasion of the region by Turkey, Jeffrey Toobin pointed out to the panel that a majority of voters favor less military involvement in the Middle East.

He asked whether a significant majority of voters are “more with Trump than with the politicians” on the issue.

“Do you think there’s an enormous desire for our troops to be over in Syria for years more? To be in Afghanistan for almost 20 years? I think the president may have his finger on the pulse. I don’t know if it’s in the national security interest, but I don’t see this as a political negative for the president at all,” said Toobin.

TURKEY ANNOUNCES INCURSION OF NORTHEAST SYRIA, US-BACKED KURDS HAVE VOWED ‘ALL-OUT’ WAR

Many GOP lawmakers who have stood lockstep with the president on almost every other issue have expressed concern that the withdrawal could lead to the genocide of the U.S.’ Kurdish allies and a return to power of the Islamic State in the region.

On Monday, Trump vociferously defended his decision in a long series of tweets, saying the ISIS “Caliphate” has been defeated and lamenting that the U.S. was in the region years longer than planned. Reprising the rhetoric on foreign wars he has often used on the campaign trail, he described the fight as a regional conflict for Turkey and other countries to wage — not America’s problem.

The strategy was met with opposition from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who urged the president to reconsider the decision, and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who called it “a catastrophic mistake.”

Lori Loughlin’s college admissions scandal sentence will likely be harsher than Felicity Huffman’s: US Attorney

Lori Loughlin will likely face a tougher sentence than Felicity Huffman if convicted for her role in the college admissions scandal.

Less than one month after Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in prison, U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, told WCVB in Boston that Loughlin may find herself in more trouble than her fellow actress for her part in the scandal that’s swept up many wealthy parents.

“We will probably ask for a higher sentence for [Loughlin] than we did for Felicity Huffman,” Lelling told the show’s hosts in a recent interview. “I can’t tell you what that would be.”

LORI LOUGHLIN WAS ‘OBSESSED’ WITH GETTING DAUGHTERS INTO USC, REPORT CLAIMS

Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty in May and accepted responsibility for her actions. Meanwhile, Loughlin, 55, plans to fight the charges against her and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, 56, which Lelling notes may not work out in her favor.

“It just happened to be that Ms. Huffman was probably the least culpable of the defendants who we’ve charged in that case,” he said. “She took responsibility almost immediately, she was contrite, did not try to minimize her conduct. I think she handled it in a very classy way.”

“At the end of the day, we thought the one month was proportional,” he said of prosecutors’ initial sentence recommendation for Huffman. “I think the two weeks that she actually got was also reasonable. We were happy with that. I think it was a thoughtful sentence.”

Lelling concluded by noting that Huffman’s prison sentence sends a clear message to others involved with the case that even the least-culpable defendant is serving some time behind bars.

Huffman pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud earlier this year. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.

In addition to having to self-report to prison on Oct. 25, she also received one year of probation, was ordered to perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.

Meanwhile, Loughlin, 55, and her husband were accused of paying $500,000 to alleged scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited onto the University of Southern California’s crew team despite neither girl ever being a rower. USC put the girls’ enrollment statuses on hold amid an internal investigation into the scandal.

The pair rejected the plea deal that other parents allegedly involved in the case – including Huffman – accepted. Giannulli, 56, and Loughlin then were hit with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and would face up to 40 years behind bars if convicted on all charges.

Witness In Trump-Ukraine Scandal Ordered Not To Appear Before Congress

Westlake Legal Group 5d9c7ecf210000250433a11c Witness In Trump-Ukraine Scandal Ordered Not To Appear Before Congress

The State Department blocked a top U.S. diplomat from giving a scheduled deposition Tuesday before a House panel conducting the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, is a witness to Trump’s efforts to persuade Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a front-runner in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race.

Sondland is “profoundly disappointed” that he won’t be able to testify Tuesday and hopes the issues raised by the State Department will be resolved promptly, his attorney Robert Luskin said.

“Ambassador Sondland believes strongly that he acted at all times in the best interest of the United States, and he stands ready to answer the Committee’s questions fully and truthfully,” Luskin said in a statement

The Trump administration’s directive came just hours before Sondland was scheduled to meet for a closed-door session with staff of three Democratic-led House committees.

In his diplomatic role, Sondland helped Ukraine “navigate” Trump’s demands for investigations into Biden and a debunked conspiracy theory regarding the 2016 cyberattack against the Democratic National Committee, according to a whistleblower complaint filed in August by a U.S. intelligence official.

That complaint, which accused Trump of seeking foreign assistance in helping his reelection campaign and potentially using military aid to Ukraine as leverage, has become the center of an impeachment inquiry into Trump launched last month.

Witness in Trump-Ukraine Matter Ordered Not to Speak in Impeachment Inquiry

Westlake Legal Group defaultPromoCrop Witness in Trump-Ukraine Matter Ordered Not to Speak in Impeachment Inquiry United States International Relations Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry Sondland, Gordon D (1957- ) impeachment House of Representatives Democratic Party

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration directed a top American diplomat involved in its pressure campaign on Ukraine not to appear Tuesday morning for a scheduled deposition with House Democrats conducting an impeachment inquiry, according to two people briefed on the matter.

The decision to block Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union, from speaking with investigators is certain to provoke an immediate conflict with potentially profound consequences for the White House and President Trump. House Democrats have repeatedly warned that if the administration tries to interfere with their investigation, it will be construed as obstruction, a charge they see as potentially worthy of impeachment.

But in making the decision on Tuesday, hours before he was scheduled to sit for a deposition in the basement of the Capitol, the Trump administration appears to be making the calculation that it is better off risking the House’s ire than letting Mr. Sondland show up and set a precedent for cooperation with an inquiry they have strenuously argued is illegitimate.

Mr. Sondland has become enmeshed in the burgeoning scandal into how the president sought to push the Ukrainians to investigate his political rivals. Although Ukraine is not in the union, Mr. Trump instructed Mr. Sondland — a wealthy hotelier and campaign contributor — to take a lead in relations between the Trump administration and the country. Democrats consider him a key witness to what transpired between the two countries.

Mr. Sondland interacted directly with Mr. Trump, speaking with the president several times around key moments that House Democrats are now investigating, including before and after Mr. Trump’s July call with the new Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky. The president asked Mr. Zelensky on the call to do him “a favor” and investigate the business dealings of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son and a conspiracy theory about Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 election.

Text messages provided to Congress last week showed that Mr. Sondland and another senior diplomat had worked on language for a statement they wanted the Ukrainian president to put out in August that would have committed him to investigations sought by Mr. Trump into his political rivals. The diplomats consulted with Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, about the statement, believing they needed pacify him in order to pacify Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Trump and allow the United States to normalize relations with the Ukrainians.

Adam Silver addresses NBA’s China, Hong Kong controversy and says league won’t regulate free speech

Amid growing backlash against NBA owners for siding with deep-pocketed Beijing powerbrokers over one of their own employees – who was rebuked for a pro-Hong Kong protest tweet – the league’s commissioner released a statement Tuesday morning seeking to clarify the NBA’s relationship with the communist country.

The statement from Adam Silver, released before a news conference in Tokyo, said the league “will not put itself in a position of regulating what players, employees and team owners say or will not say on these issues” — a popular sentiment, but one that appeared at odds with the actions of high-ranking NBA leaders in the aftermath of Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeting about Hong Kong, the autonomous Chinese territory in the middle of contentious demonstrations over a host of human rights issues.

CHINESE GOVERNMENT CANCELS NETS EVENT, WON’T BROADCAST NBA PRESEASON GAMES AFTER TWEET FALLOUT: REPORT

“It is inevitable that people around the world – including from America and China – will have different viewpoints over different issues,” Silver said in the statement. “It is not the role of the NBA to adjudicate those differences.”

Silver added: “This is about far more than growing our business…Values of equality, respect and freedom of expression have long defined the NBA — and will continue to do so. As an American-based basketball league operating globally, among our greatest contributions are these values of the game.”

Silver, who’s previously been lauded for his progressive stewardship of the NBA, said he still plans to go to China on Wednesday in advance of preseason games there between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.

NBA’S CONTROVERSY WITH CHINA IS ALL ABOUT MONEY, SHOULDN’T BE SURPRISING TO ANYONE, JESSE WATTERS SAYS

The current flap arose after Morey tweeted a picture of a slogan reading “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.” But Morey deleted the tweet after significant blowback — including a tweet from Rockets owner Tillman Fertitta saying Morey “does NOT speak for” the team. Morey later backtracked on his advocacy.

“I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friends of mine in China,” he wrote. “I was merely voicing one thought, based on one interpretation, of one complicated event. I have had a lot of opportunity since that tweet to hear and consider other perspectives.”

He added: “I have always appreciated the significant support our Chinese fans and sponsors have provided and I would hope that those who are upset will know that offending or misunderstanding them was not my intention. My tweets are my own and in no way represent the Rockets or the NBA.”

TED CRUZ KNOCKS NBA IN TWEET DEFENDING ‘SOUTH PARK’ IN CHINA

Morey’s initial tweet led to several Chinese sportswear brands suspending ties with the Rockets. The Chinese Basketball Association also canceled a preseason event involving the Rockets’ G-League affiliate, according to The Athletic.

Silver said later at a press conference the league was “apologetic” over the outcome, but was “not apologizing for Daryl exercising his freedom of speech,” though Morey appeared to do that himself in his damage-control tweet. Silver added that he “regrets” how so many Chinese people and NBA fans were upset by Morey’s message.

Geng Shuang, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, said ordinary people have already expressed their position over the tweet.

“How can it be possible to carry out exchanges and cooperation with China without knowing China’s public opinion?” Geng asked. “[The] NBA’s cooperation with China has been going on for quite a long time, so what should be said and what should be done, they know best.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce from the father of her three kids, claiming the marriage is “irretrievable” — amid allegations that she had an affair with DC-based political consultant Tim Mynett.

The freshman congresswoman filed to split from husband Ahmed Hirsi on Friday in Minnesota, the state she represents, The Post has learned.

ILHAN OMAR SAYS TRUMP ‘TERRIFIED’ OF HER ‘INTERSECTIONALITY’ AS A WOMAN, IMMIGRANT, MUSLIM

Omar filed on her 37th birthday, according to the US House of Representatives’ archives.

Omar and Hirsi were married in a religious ceremony in 2002. The two separated in 2008, then legally remarried in 2018.

“There has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” the court documents filed in Minnesota say.

Omar said neither partner is seeking an order of protection and she asks the court to grant them “joint legal and physical custody” of their three minor children.

‘Voice’ coach Gwen Stefani won’t be returning for Season 18

Gwen Stefani announced she will not be returning as a coach for Season 18 of “The Voice.”

The news comes after Nick Jonas was revealed to be a new coach on the singing competition series. He joins Stefani’s beau, Blake Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.

Instead, Stefani, 50, will focus on the final dates of her “Just a Girl” Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater in February and May 2020.

GWEN STEFANI DIDN’T KNOW WHO BOYFRIEND BLAKE SHELTON WAS BEFORE ‘THE VOICE’

“I didn’t expect to be doing [the Vegas show] and ‘The Voice’ at the same time,” the singer told Entertainment Tonight. “I just feel like I’m alive in a way I’ve never been before, because I have to be! Because doing both is a lot.”

In addition to her Las Vegas residency, Stefani, who just rang in the big 5-0, has another reason to celebrate.

She and fellow coach Shelton, 43, are reaching a milestone in their relationship: four years of dating.

The couple first met on the set of “The Voice” in 2014 and sparks quickly flew.
