Ellen DeGeneres said she wouldn't let Trump appear on her show



Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres revealed she wouldn't allow President Trump on her show 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." DeGeneres 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."

DeGeneres continued saying, "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. 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 is dividing all of us and I just don't want him on my show," DeGeneres said.

The talk show host has addressed Trump on her show in the past. In February, DeGeneres responded to President Trump's travel ban on her show by reciting the plot of "Finding Dory."

The movie is about a fish named Dory who loses her family and needs to find a way to reunite with them.

"But the other animals help Dory. Animals that don’t even need her. Animals that don’t have anything in common with her," DeGeneres said. "They help her, even though they’re completely different colors. Because that’s what you do when you see someone in need — you help them."

The comedian has featured other presidents and presidential candidates on her show in the past such as President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama and candidates John McCain and Hillary Clinton.
