Ellen DeGeneres is using “Finding Dory” to make a political statement. In a recent segment of her hit talk show, the actress/comedian used her hit Disney Pixar film to give her thoughts about President Trump’s “Muslim Ban”
”I don’t get political, so I’m not going to talk about the travel ban,” DeGeneres, who voiced the movie’s titular character. “I’m just gonna talk about the very non-political, family-friendly, ‘People’s Choice Award’-winning ‘Finding Dory.’”
Describing the movie’s plot, DeGeneres recalls how the forgetful Dory tries to reunite with her parents in America by crossing a wall ― and then receives help from animals “that don’t have anything in common with her.”
“They help her, even though they’re completely different colors,” says DeGeneres in the clip. “Because that’s what you do when you see someone in need — you help them.”
Ironically, “Finding Dory” was reportedly the first film to be screened under the Trump administration in the White House family theater last week.
