Ellen has had numerous Presidents and First Ladies on her daytime talk show from both parties, but the “welcome mat” is not out for the current occupant of the White House.
In an interview with Today’s Matt Lauer, Ellen was honest and direct about her feeling towards Trump.

“Why wouldn’t someone like you want to sit down opposite the president of the United States?”
“I’m not going to change his mind,” she said. “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.”
And that, readers of theOUTfront is the difference between a humanitarian with the courage of her convictions and a TV personality playing for ratings.
