Pharrell Williams did that screenplay so much justice, and as someone who has seen the dude perform live, he absolutely emits and illuminates grace and dedication to everything he does. 

“Don’t act like you was there when you wasn’t.” 

Pharrell, you said it, bruh.

“In a career spanning three decades, Ellen DeGeneres has lifted our spirits and brought joy to our lives as a stand-up comic, actor and television star. In every role, she reminds us to be kind to one another and to treat people as each of us wants to be treated. At a pivotal moment, her courage and candor helped change the hearts and minds of millions of Americans, accelerating our nation’s constant drive toward equality and acceptance for all.

Again and again, Ellen DeGeneres has shown us that a single individual can make the world a more fun, more open, more loving place so long as we ‘just keep swimming.’”

Watch: Donald Trump watched Finding Dory on Saturday after signing the Muslim travel ban. Now Ellen DeGeneres has some words for him

DeGeneres wasn’t the only one that saw the irony in Trump’s movie choice. Her co-star, Albert Brooks, who voiced Marlin in both Finding Dory and Finding Nemo, tweeted, “Odd that Trump is watching Finding Dory today, a movie about reuniting with family when he’s preventing it in real life.”
