Ellen DeGeneres solves America’s problem in two minutes.
On Tuesday afternoon, several long hours before election results poured in, the talk show host filmed a two minute and forty-seven second monologue discussing the importance of hope and unity.
In the segment tapped before the final election results, the star is wearing a grey sweater with the word “love” plastered on it, saying in true DeGeneres fashion, “Well, well, well. The election is finally over. I don’t want to know the results, don’t tell me. Don’t spoil it. It’s on my DVR. I’m watching other stuff.”
“The truth is we’re taping this show on Tuesday afternoon, so people at home you know something that I don’t and that we all don’t.”
“People have been very passionate about this race. And I think it’s because we all love our country, we just have different ideas about what’s best for it, which is part of what makes America great.”
“And I believe we can all come together because if you take away the labels, you realize we’re far more alike than we are different.”
The TV-host also touched on the fact that, everyone should come together, despite being on opposite sides of the political spectrum, a similar sentiment President Obama and Democrat Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton emphasized during both of their speeches to the public on Wednesday.
The solution provided by DeGeneres is focusing on examples of everyday struggles, something that all Americans come up against.
Saying, “For instance, no matter what your politics are, we all have that feeling of stepping out of the shower and realizing you left the towel completely across the bathroom.”
“And you have to do that shimmy on the bathmat all the way across where you try to get the minimal amount of water trying to tip toe like, just that one drop of water will be there if I do it that way.”
