WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres geeks out over meeting Randall Cobb

Ellen DeGeneres attended Sunday’s Cowboys vs. Packers game in Dallas, and while most of the headlines center around her sitting next to former President George W. Bush, another moment caught my eye this morning. DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi are huge Packers fans, and while on the sideline before the game, spotted Randall Cobb, who left Green Bay for Dallas earlier this year.

“There’s Randall Cobb!” Ellen exclaimed. “We love you. We love you.”

Cobb greeted the group and gave Ellen and Portia hugs.

After the video started making the rounds today, Cobb followed up with a tweet:

On her show, Ellen discussed her trip to the game — specifically, sitting next to President Bush and the attention it garnered — the video of which has gone viral.

“Here’s the thing: I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different, and I think we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different.”

“Just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them. When I say, ‘Be kind to one another,’ I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do. I mean, be kind to everyone. It doesn’t matter.”

    She’s a cool person. Great job too taking on the haters who went after the W friendship. Loved her perspective of “having friends who you don’t agree with”.

    If you can’t stand people who disagree with you then it’s not them who has the problem.

    Seems to me the bashing is from the left for her being seen with Bush. Certainly not the right bashing Bush for hanging with Ellen. It’s the most classic example of the hypocrisy of the libs and the left. The right is like “oh look Bush is hanging with Ellen. Cool!!”
