Ellen DeGeneres kisses Trump ally Howard Stern to ‘make America forget’ George Bush
Ellen DeGeneres has kissed radio host Howard Stern to try and get everyone to “forget” her George Bush scandal.
Appearing on DeGeneres’ show on Monday, Stern made multiple references to the controversy around her friendship with George Bush.
DeGeneres strongly rejected criticism last week after being photographed with the Republican ex-president, who tried to amend the US constitution to ban same-sex marriage and fought to stop gay soldiers from serving in the armed forces.
Howard Stern gives Ellen DeGeneres tips on helping people ‘forget’ George Bush.
Stern said: “People were giving you grief about this George Bush picture. But listen, you know, I’m always with you. I’m on your side.
“The problem is… People have this picture in their mind of you and George Bush. What you need to do, in my opinion, is take a picture with me, making out with me.
“I’m just thinking, once people see me with you, no one’s going to be thinking about George Bush.”
The pair then shared a kiss, after Stern added: “Now you’re gonna kiss a hot guy.
“This is the picture that’s going to make America forget that you were sitting next to George W. Bush… you’re so smart to do this.”

DeGeneres told the audience: “We’ll be back in a minute with the wonderful kisser, Howard Stern.”
The host also praised the “super charming” Stern, a long-time friend of Donald Trump.
‘Super-charming’ Howard Stern once told Trump he could have ‘nailed’ Princess Diana.
It was on Stern’s radio show in 1997 that Trump joked about “nailing” Princess Diana in an interview months after her death.
Stern told him: “You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her.”
Trump replied: “I think I could have.”
Trump and Stern then joked about forcing the Princess to take an HIV test before having sex with her, due to her AIDS advocacy.
