Ellen DeGeneres Wants to Meet Beto O’Rourke After He Defends Kneeling NFL Players

Famed talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres is Beto O’Rourke’s newest supporter.

On Tuesday, August 21, the quick-video news site NowThis shared a four-minute clip of the U.S. Senate candidate speaking about NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. When asked if kneeling was disrespectful, O’Rourke said, “I can think of nothing more American.”

Like many NowThis videos, the post went viral and has more than 13 million views.

And it turns out it came across DeGeneres’ Twitter feed. She retweeted the video and tagged O’Rourke writing, “I’d like to meet you @BetoORourke.”

There’s no telling whether this is an invitation to be on her show (though Twitter users said they’d love to see the politician skateboard or jam out as a guest) or if she just wants to speak with him privately. If the latter is true, the exposure will definitely pay off in O’Rourke’s race against Ted Cruz.
