Ellen uses ‘Find­ing Dory’ plot to crit­i­cize Trump, refers to wall

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Ellen DeGeneres has used “Find­ing Dory” to il­lus­trate her stance on Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s re­cent ex­ec­u­tive or­der on im­mi­gra­tion and refugees. DeGeneres pro­vides the voice of the ti­tle char­ac­ter in the Dis­ney/Pixar hit. Trump hosted a screen­ing of the an­i­mated film at the White House over the week­end. DeGeneres went over the plot of the film on her chat show Mon­day, men­tion­ing that the an­i­mated fish she plays finds her­self stuck in an aquar­ium in­sti­tute “be­hind a large wall.” She notes that the wall “has al­most no ef­fect” in keep­ing Dory and her friends from get­ting back to the ocean. She says Dory is helped by other sea crea­tures “even though they’re com­pletely dif­fer­ent colours be­cause that’s what you do when you see some­one in need, you help them.”
