The always upbeat comedian and TV host spoke in tears about the events, saying, “I don’t know about you, but I feel sad, I feel anxious, I feel helpless.

DeGeneres also noted that tough times like this inspire her to keep doing her job.
“I see it everywhere, you look in Las Vegas, and people were helping each other, people were lined up at 4:30 in the morning just to donate blood,” she said. “It is hard to do a show on a day like this.
