In a Today show interview with Matt Lauer from the set of her show, Ellen DeGeneres shared her thoughts on President Trump. Unlike most of us, DeGeneres doesn’t just judge Trump based on what she sees in the newspaper or on TV, or based on whatever executive order he just signed. DeGeneres has personal experience with Trump. The two worked together years ago.
“I know him from Celebrity Apprentice because when we first started the show, I think Season 1 or 2, we went out there and filmed something with him,” DeGeneres said. “So I flew in his helicopter and did a bit with him. So I knew him then.”
Lauer asked DeGeneres if she’d ever like to have Trump as a guest on her show, to which she said definitively that she would not.
DeGeneres explained, “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 believes in something we don’t believe in, and still accept them and still let them have their rights.”
