Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres says President Donald Trump is not welcome on her show.
In an interview with Today host Matt Lauer Thursday, DeGeneres was asked if she would ever invite the president on her show for an interview, as she did with former president Barack Obama and former 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
“Um, no,” she said. “Because I’m not going to change his mind.”
“He’s against everything that I stand for,” the Ellen host further explained. “We need to look at someone else who looks different than us and believes in something that we don’t believe in and still accept them, and still let them have their rights.”
Obama twice guested on DeGeneres’ highly-rated show; once in 2011 and again last February.
Elsewhere in her interview, the talk show host revealed that after she came out as gay — 20 years ago on her 90s show Ellen — she could not find work in Hollywood for three years.
