Ellen DeGeneres Says Trump Is Not Welcome on Her Show: “He’s Against Everything That I Stand For”
Earlier this week, Alec Baldwin appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and revealed that Saturday Night Live invited Donald Trump to appear back in February, and when Baldwin asked DeGeneres if she’s invited Trump on her show, she responded as plainly as possible with just a one-word answer: “No.” Speaking with Matt Lauer on Today this morning, DeGeneres went a step further and said that Trump is not welcome on her show. “I’m not gonna change his mind. He’s against everything that I stand for,” she says. “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.” So just let that sink in: the kindest, most generous, most consistently controversy-free host currently on television has taken a very firm stance that the current President of the United States is not welcome on her show.
