The media is gushing – not inappropriately – over Ellen DeGeneres’ defense of her friendship with Dubya.
To which I, and the vast majority of middle America who actually have to live in this world, respond “this is real life for most of us, the ones who don’t live in progressive cocoons.

Lots sharing this, but missing the broader point. Yes, Ellen and GWB can agree to disagree, great. The bigger issue is the only people who can’t do that these days are woke progressives. No conservative, libertarian or true liberal was upset by this. It’s not a two way street. https://t.co/mPcNuZBAzp— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) October 8, 2019
Urban Progressive Privilege means feeling entitled to feel upset that cognitive dissonance exists, and feeling you’ve got the right to make someone pay for it.
