Βράβευσαν την Ellen DeGeneres στον Λευκό Οίκο

Επεισοδιακά εκτυλίχθηκε η βράβευση της Ellen DeGeneres από τον Barack Obama, καθώς η παρουσιάστρια «έφαγε πόρτα» στον Λευκό Οίκο.

Η Ellen ήταν μεταξύ των 21 προσωπικοτήτων από τον χώρο των τεχνών, της τεχνολογίας, του θεάματος και του αθλητισμού που βραβεύτηκαν από τον Αμερικανό πρόεδρο.

Ωστόσο, όταν η παρουσιάστρια πήγε στον Λευκό Οίκο δεν της επέτρεψαν την είσοδο, καθώς… δεν είχε την ταυτότητά της και κατέληξε να κάθεται σε ένα παγκάκι.

Η Ellen αποκάλυψε την περιπέτειά της επιστρατεύοντας το της χιούμορ, ενώ τα γέλια έδωσαν την θέση τους στη συγκίνηση, καθώς η παρουσιάστρια δεν μπόρεσε να συγκρατήσει τα δάκρυά της κατά την στιγμή της βράβευσης.

What a wonderful day. #Repost @whitehouse ・・・ "It's easy to forget now, when we’ve come so far, where now marriage is equal under the law—just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out on the most public of stages almost 20 years ago. Just how important it was not just to the LGBT community, but for all of us to see somebody so full of kindness and light, somebody we liked so much, somebody who could be our neighbor or our colleague or our sister challenge our own assumptions, remind us that we have more in common than we realize, push our country in the direction of justice. What an incredible burden that was to bear. To risk your career like that. People don’t do that very often. And then to have the hopes of millions on your shoulders. But it's like Ellen says: We all want a tortilla chip that can support the weight of guacamole. Which really makes no sense to me, but I thought would brighten the mood, because I was getting kind of choked up. And she did pay a price—we don’t remember this. I hadn’t remembered it. She did, for a pretty long stretch of time—even in Hollywood. And yet, today, every day, in every way, Ellen counters what too often divides us with the countless things that bind us together—inspires us to be better, one joke, one dance at a time." —President Obama awarding the Medal of Freedom, our nation’s highest civilian honor, to Ellen Degeneres yesterday, along with 20 other Americans who have contributed to their fields.
