Ellen DeGeneres is keeping her head held high.

The Finding Dory star, wearing a sweater that had "love" written on it, taped a monologue Tuesday afternoon based on the outcome that Donald Trump won the presidency, which ended up happening hours later. While Hollywood has reacted to the election results in different ways, Ellen chose to keep her speech positive, uplifting and funny.

"Well, well, well. The election is finally over. I don't want to know the results, don't tell me. Don't spoil it. It's on my DVR. I'm watching other stuff," she began. "The truth is we're taping this show on Tuesday afternoon, so people at home you know something that I don't and that we all don't."

Despite the divided attitudes heading into the election, Ellen chose to see the best in America and the people who live here. "People have been very passionate about this race. And I think it's because we all love our country, we just have different ideas about what's best for it, which is part of what makes America great," she continued.

"And I believe we can all come together because if you take away the labels, you realize we're far more alike than we are different."

The Ellen DeGeneres Show host then provided hilarious examples of how people with opposing beliefs could come together and agree on certain horrors of everyday living.

"For instance, no matter what your politics are, we all have that feeling of stepping out of the shower and realizing you left the towel completely across the bathroom," she joked. "And you have to do that shimmy on the bathmat all the way across where you try to get the minimal amount of water trying to tip toe like, 'Just that one drop of water will be there if I do it that way."

She continued, "We all do that thing where you're pulling into a parking garage and you duck your head just to make sure you make it. It doesn't matter if you're a liberal or if you're conservative, we've all passed out watching Netflix and woke up not knowing what episode we're on, what season we're on, whose couch we're on."

Ellen ended her monologue with a message of hope and perseverance. "What I'm trying to say is that we have so much in common, our differences actually make us stronger," she said. "We need to have the kindness and respect for one another. Here's where I make the exception: the people that leave the shopping carts in the middle of your parking spot. Out of the country. Kick them out of the country. Bring the shopping cart back!

"Whether you relate more to an elephant or a donkey, I think animals set the best example for how we should all get along."

She then ended her segment with adorable videos of different animal species coming together to play.
