Ellen DeGeneres Takes Your 'Woman Card' and Raises 'The Ellen Card'

'If there was such a thing as a woman card, I would be a proud, card-carrying member,' Ellen says.

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to come up with the perfect response to Donald Trump’s “Woman Card,” accusation, which he leveled at Hillary Clinton saying the candidate would be nowhere close to where she is in this election if she didn’t play the “Woman Card.” By now, you’ve seen Clinton’s response after her wins in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland, and Delaware last Tuesday. 

“…if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in,” Clinton said to a crowd in Pennsylvania. 

Well, the only one who can come close to Clinton’s response is Ellen, who has created “The Ellen Card.” Ellen introduces “The Ellen Card” in the opening monologue on her show, but not before she offers her own retort to Donald (Ellen won’t say his name, but does say that it rhymes with “rump”). 

“If there was such a thing as a woman card, I would be a proud, card-carrying member,” Ellen says. “I would put in my wallet right next to where I’m going to put my Harriet Tubman $20 bills.” 

She goes on to introduce the downloadable “Ellen Card,” and explains what its intended use is. “Use it to do something nice in the world, because instead of dividing people based on women’s cards or men’s cards, we should bring people together,” Ellen says. “We should do kind things for one another.”

But that’s not it. In Ellen’s retooling of paying it forward, she asks that you leave one if you feed someone’s meter, or if you leave one for a server in addition to a tip, and so on. Of course, that’s not the end of the card though. She also asks that you take a picture if you give or receive one, and that you then send the pic to her show. 

If that’s not enough, “The Ellen Card” is available in pink, blue, and rainbow.
