Ellen DeGeneres Would Like Us All To Get Along And Watch Cute Animal Videos

"We need to have kindness and respect for one another."

Ellen DeGeneres prerecorded her monologue for Wednesday's episode of her talk show before the election results were in. However, much like President Obama, she had a message of positivity to share with Americans regardless of the outcome.

"People have been very passionate about this race, and I think it's because we all love our country — we just have different ideas about what's best for it, which is part of what makes America great," she began. "And I believe that we can all come together, because, if you take away the labels, you realize that we're far more alike than we are different."

Ellen, who tweeted her support for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, took an unintentional cue from Stephen Colbert and shared a few relatable experiences that transcend party. That includes falling asleep while watching Netflix and ducking when we pull into a parking garage.


"What I'm trying to say is that we have so much in common, our differences actually make us stronger," she continued. "We need to have kindness and respect for one another." 

And because Ellen knows how stressful this election has been (and continues to be), she made sure to show us a few cute animal videos. "Whether you relate more to an elephant or a donkey, I think animals set the best example for how we should all get along."
