During an interview with journalist Megyn Kelly, who was promoting her show Today With Megyn Kelly, Ellen DeGeneres asked Kelly if she would ever have Trump as a guest.
Kelly who was publicly attacked by Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign, said: “definitely, I would not say no to the sitting president of the United States.”
DeGeneres, on the other hand, said she wouldn’t have President Trump on her show when Kelly asked her.
“I would not have him on my show,” DeGeneres said as her audience applauded.
DeGeneres joked that she was going to get bad tweets, but then she got serious and gave a reason as to why she wouldn’t have him on the show.
“He is who he is and he has enough attention. He has his Twitter account and he has ways to get his message across.” “There is nothing I’m going to say to him that’s going to change him, and I don’t want to give him a platform because it validates him.”
DeGeneres continued “for me to have someone on the show, I have to at least admire them in some way. And I can’t have someone that I feel is not only dangerous for the country and for me personally as a gay woman—but to the world. He’s dividing all of us.”
DeGeneres supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign and when she lost DeGeneres tweeted out “Thank you @HillaryClinton for your speech and for your endless bravery. We are stronger together.”
