Popular Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has revealed that she wouldn’t allow President Donald Trump on her show.
“I don’t want to give him a platform because it validates him and for me to have someone on the show I have to at least admire them in some way,” DeGeneres said. “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.”
DeGeneres comments came during an interview with NBC host Megyn Kelly. Kelly was a guest on “Ellen” to preview her new talk show debuting on Monday.
DeGeneres asked her about whether Trump could be a guest. During the presidential campaign, Trump criticized Kelly’s line of questioning during a debate and told CNN that she had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
Kelly said “yes,’ explaining that she would talk to any sitting President of the United States.
Kelly then asked DeGeneres if she would say no to Trump to which DeGeneres replied, “yes.”
“He is dividing all of us and I just don’t want him on my show,” she added.
DeGeneres then joked that she could possibly get bad tweets as a result of her answer.
“He is who he is and he has enough attention and he has his Twitter account and he has ways to get his message across,” DeGeneres said. “There’s nothing that I’m going to say to him that’s going to change him.”
