Trump not welcome on Ellen DeGeneres show

Today Show host Matt Lauer interviewed Ellen DeGeneres, and after asking her what it was like to publicly come out as gay 20 years ago, he moved on to Trump.

Lauer: What's your relationship with Donald Trump? Do you know him at all? Have you had a chance to interview him?

DeGeneres: I mean, I know him from Celebrity Apprentice because when we first started the show... we filmed something with him. I flew in his helicopter and did a bit with him. So I knew him then. I have not spoken to him since he he's run for president or become president.

Lauer: Would you like him to come on the show?

Degeneres: Um...No.

[Explosive laughter, hoots and applause from audience.]

Lauer: Why not?

DeGeneres: Because I'm not gonna change his mind. He's against everything I stand for.
