Ellen DeGeneres commented on immigration ban by citing plot from 'Finding Dory'

While thousands of people across the country were protesting Donald Trump's immigrant ban, folks at the White House were gathered around for a Finding Dory screening on Saturday afternoon.

Whether or not Trump realized it, the journey Dory goes through in the film is eerily similar to the situations at play in real life. Ellen DeGeneres, voice of Dory, noticed the similarities and pointed it out in her monologue for Tuesday's show.

"I don't get political so I'm not going to talk about the travel ban," she said before diving into the plot of Finding Dory, emphasizing the similarities between Dory's quest to be reunited with her parents and overcome obstacles — like a big wall in her way.

*cough, cough*

Sound familiar?

"You won't believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out," DeGeneres explained.

"Even though Dory gets into America, she ends up separated from her family, but the other animals help Dory. Animals that don't even need her. Animals that don't have anything in common with her," DeGeneres said.

"They help her, even though they're completely different colors," she continued. "Because that's what you do when you see someone in need — you help them."

No word on whether or not Trump understands the premise of the film, but I'm sure he'll tweet about it sooner or later.
