Earlier this week, a video went viral of talk show host Ellen DeGeneres saying that she would not want President Trump to be on her show. Ellen said that President Trump was against everything she stood for and the clip quickly went viral
Ellen was meeting with Today’s Matt Lauer on her Emmy-award winning daytime talk show when Ellen then asked Lauer what he thought about Trump’s war on the media.
Lauer responded, “I think it’s something that he goes out and he says in front of a crowd of supporters and it gets a great reaction. He doesn’t hate the media. As a matter of fact, he’s someone who has loved the media more than most people.”
Ellen followed up with, “I think he hates the media that’s going to attack him.”
Then Lauer being a veteran journalist pointed out that President Trump cannot have his cake and eat it too. “You can’t have it both ways.”
Lauer told Ellen, “You can’t have it both ways. You can’t just have a media that you only want to say the things you want it to say. I think it’s going to die down, I really do.”
Now, we doubt it is going to die down. But here you have one of America’s veteran journalist and a top woman in show business who want nothing to do with the president. One, because he is so intolerant. And the other because he wants to run the media like a dictator instead of president of democracy.
