Ellen DeGeneres explained the plot of 'Finding Dory' after noting that President Donald Trump had screened the movie at the White House.

Ellen DeGeneres said she didn't want to talk about the president's travel ban during her talk show on Monday, but she found a clever way to make her point anyway by instead talking about the plot of her animated film Finding Dory. 

"On Friday the president gave an order banning people from seven countries from entering the United States, including people with green cards. And then on Saturday, the president screened Finding Dory at the White House. I don't get political, but I will say that I am against one of those two things," DeGeneres said, drawing a big laugh from her audience. 

She went on to break down the movie, involving a fish whose parents are from another country and the characters' plan to get over a wall that "has almost no effect in keeping them out."

You can watch the entire segment from Ellen below. 

If you want to watch Finding Dory, it's one of the new movies that will be available on Netflix starting tomorrow.

Watch out NBC - CBS just brought out the big guns.

Oprah Winfrey has been named a "special contributor" to CBS News' "60 Minutes," the newsmagazine's executive producer Jeff Fager announced Tuesday.

“There is only one Oprah Winfrey,” Fager said in the announcement. “...She is a remarkable and talented woman with a level of integrity that sets her apart and makes her a perfect fit for ‘60 Minutes.’"

Oprah's arrival to the Sunday night program will help CBS News compete with NBC News' addition of Megyn Kelly.

NBC is reportedly going to introduce Kelly in its Sunday night line up with a rival newsmagazine show. 

Winfrey will begin contributing occasional special reports this fall, when "60 Minutes" airs its 50th season.

Her stories, Winfrey said, will focus on "what separates us, and help faciltate real conversations between people from different backgrounds."

FX

The People v. O.J. Simpson stars Sterling K. Brown, left, as Christopher Darden and Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson.

Babe (1995): It's a bit jarring when you realize the same James Cromwell who plays the sadistic Dr. Arden in American Horror Story: Asylum also starred as a kind, pig-rescuing farmer 17 years earlier.

Balto (1995): Another 22-year-old favorite that still hits us right in the feels. Balto is loosely based on a true story of the Siberian husky who saved children during the diphtheria epidemic in the 1925 medicine run to Nome. Feb. 1

Finding Dory (2016): Step aside, children, us 20-somethings have waited 14 years for this sequel on everyone's favorite whale-speaking blue tang. Feb. 1

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson (2016): The acting is phenomenal and the story is timeless even 23 years later. The infamous O.J. Simpson murder case enthralled the nation once again, this time on the small screen for FX. The miniseries nabbed nine Emmys and Golden Globes for Best Miniseries and Best Actress. Feb. 2 …

Bieber takes a hit from former NHL great at celebrity hockey game in L.A. (w/video)

Justin Bieber took a hit, but bounced back.

Justin Bieber took a hit, but bounced back.

LOS ANGELES — Justin Bieber got a taste of NHL hockey and the Staples Center glass Saturday, courtesy of NHL great Chris Pronger.

The pop star responded by showing off skills that would not have looked out of place in his native Canada during a celebrity exhibition game.

Bieber was driven into the boards in the first half by a laughing Pronger, who spent 18 years in the league as a hard-nosed defenseman. The singer responded with an empty-net goal and an assist as Team Gretzky beat Team Lemieux 5-3 in the 2017 NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout.

Bieber did not look out of place while sharing the ice with current NHL stars Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers and the Chicago Blackhawks' Patrick Kane, along with a host of retired greats and hockey-loving entertainment figures.

Although he did miss two penalty shots, Bieber scored a goal as time expired, prompting actor Cuba Gooding Jr. to joke, "Twenty-five shots later, thank God he made it."

"I was shocked at how good the kid can play," said Gooding, who scored the winning goal. "He really has nice skills, and he's a real sweet kid, too." …
