Twitter reacts to George W. Bush and Ellen DeGeneres sitting together at Cowboys game: 'Sunday shocker'

Ellen DeGeneres and George W. Bush sat next to one another at the Dallas Cowboys' game against the Green Bay Packers over the weekend, and viewers had a lot to say about the seemingly unexpected pairing.

The pair, who were joined by their respective wives Portia de Rossi and Laura Bush, appeared to enjoy themselves while sitting in Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' suite, judging by the few cutaways aired during Fox's coverage of the game.

Naturally, viewers who caught the two couples sitting next to one another at the NFL game had a lot of thoughts on the pairing, with ESPN commentator Clinton Yates going so far as to call "a Sunday shocker."

"Laura & George Bush sitting with Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi is not something I expected to see at an NFL game," one person mused, while another Twitter user asked, "Is my vision screwed up?"

While many were surprised by DeGeneres and Bush enjoying one another's company, others had explanations for it that condemned the pairing's morals.

Another said that Bush "was one of our worst presidents and left our country and world in bad shape," while calling the sighting a "bad look" for Ellen.

Others took a more optimistic take of Bush and DeGeneres enjoying a Sunday football game together, saying that "this shouldn't trigger you," rather it "should give you hope for our future."

Viewers in the know wouldn't have been too shocked to see George W. Bush sitting with Ellen DeGeneres, however: He was a guest on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" back in 2017.
