"People were giving you grief about this George Bush picture," Stern said on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which was filmed last Thursady. "But listen, you know, I'm always with you. I'm on your side. The problem is—and this is a brilliant booking on your part, having me on the show—people have this picture in their mind of you and George Bush. What you need to do, in my opinion, is take a picture with me, making out with me." He added: "I'm just thinking. Once people see me with you, no one's going to be thinking about George Bush."
