Recently, Matt Lauer went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Lauer asked Ellen many questions about President Trump.
He asked her if she knew the President and apparently, according to Ellen, she has met him. One time, during Celebrity Apprentice, Ellen filmed a bit in his helicopter. However, Ellen says she has not spoken to him since he decided to run for office or since he became president.
Next, Matt asked Ellen if she would like to have President Trump on her show. Her answer was simple, "um, no".
While the audience applauded her answer, Matt asked Ellen why she wouldn't like to be able to sit down with President Trump, implying she could try and explain her feelings on controversial issues to him. That was the moment Ellen accidentally stuck her foot in her mouth.
"Because I am not going to change his mind. He's against everything I stand for. We need to look at someone else who looks differently than us, and believes in something that we don't believe in, and still accept them and still let them have their rights," said Ellen.
So apparently, Ellen says President Trump needs to accept people that believe differently than him. However, at the same time, Ellen won't accept the President for his beliefs because they are different than hers. That sets a good example and makes lots of sense...
