The host revealed that she won’t have Trump on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and it sounds like she’s sticking to that.
The daytime TV star, who is famous for pulling pranks and getting her many celebrity guests in on the action, told Matt Lauer on Today that the POTUS won’t be popping out of a box on her show anytime soon.
“I have not spoken to [Donald Trump] since he’s run for president or become president,” said DeGeneres when asked about Trump.
“Would you like him to come on the show?,” asked Lauer.
“Um, no,” replied DeGeneres. “Because I’m not going to change his mind. He’s against everything that I stand for. We need to look at someone else who looks different than us and who believes in something that we don’t believe in, and still accept them and still let them have their rights.”
DeGeneres has long been an activist for social justice. 20 years ago, the star came out as gay on the now-famous “Puppy Episode” of her sitcom Ellen. Today, DeGeneres is married to Arrested Development actress Portia De Rossi — something she was only able to do in 2008, after the Supreme Court ruled that California’s ban of gay marriage was unconstitutional. Her outspoken nature has changed the conversation surrounding LGBTQ rights.
