Reese Witherspoon is now under fire for supporting Ellen DeGeneres' weak defense of her friendship with former president George W. Bush.

In case you missed it, earlier this week, DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi incurred some major backlash for hanging out with Bush at a football game. After all, as many pointed out, Bush used his presidency to steamroll us into invading Iraq and oppose gay marriage, amongst a myriad of other things. But to DeGeneres that apparently didn't matter too much, because she likes to "be nice to everyone."

In an Ellen Show monologue, DeGeneres defended her friendship with Bush via a weak argument about how she's "friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have." Oh, and comparing a legitimate war criminal to "people who wear fur."
