Ellen DeGeneres Will Get Political in 2020, Just Not On Her Show: ‘We Need a Change’

Ellen DeGeneres isn’t ready to throw her support behind a single Democratic presidential candidate to face off with Donald Trump, but she hints that she may be leaning toward one.

But I definitely think that we need a change, and we’ll figure out who that person is.
