- The White House had held a screening of the film Finding Dory
- It was held days after President Donald Trump's travel ban
- Ellen DeGeneres made her tongue-in-cheek point using the film's plot
Her non-political point is has gone viral. Since being shared on Twitter on January 31, it has collected over 25,000 'likes' and almost 14,000 retweets.
The point was inherent in the plot of the 'very non-political, family-friendly, People's Choice Award-winning" film.
Dory, she said, lives in Australia and arrives in the US with her friends Marlin and Nemo to meet her parents. "She ends up at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall. And they all have to get over the wall, and you won't believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out," said Ms DeGeneres as the audience broke into cheers over the hint at President Trump's orders to start the construction of a US-Mexico border wall.
She even hopes that is the lesson everyone who watched the film learns from it.
