Entertainment Weekly is reporting that on Tuesday, Ellen DeGeneres used her film “Finding Dory” to criticize President Trump.

DeGeneres specifically went after Trump's policies of building a wall on the southern border of the United States and calling for greater vetting of refugees coming into the country.

On Sunday January 29, President Trump held a screening of "Finding Dory" at the White House. In the animated film, DeGeneres plays Dory, a fish who gets separated from her parents and goes on a quest to find them.

On "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," DeGeneres used “Finding Dory” as a metaphor for what she sees as the problems with the president's policies:

Dory lives in Australia, and these are her parents, and they live in America. And I don’t know what religion they are, but her dad [played by Eugene Levy] sounds a little Jewish. It doesn’t matter. Dory arrives in America with her friends Marlin and Nemo. She ends up at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall. They all have to get over the wall, and you won’t believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out

DeGeneres continued, “Even though Dory gets into America, she ends up separated from her family, but the other animals help Dory. Animals that don’t even need her. Animals that don’t have anything in common with her.  They help her, even though they’re completely different colors. Because that’s what you do when you see someone in need — you help them.”

She then said, “So that is what I hope everyone who’s watching 'Finding Dory' has learned. Tune in next week when I explain women’s rights talking about the movie, 'Mr. Wrong.'"
