DeGeneres: Populat Talk Show Host Will Get Political in 2020

Ellen DeGeneres has remained mostly apolitical on her popular talk show and in her standup.

But she promises to get more political in 2020–in other platforms and venues.

“I care deeply about our country and what’s happening to it,” she said Thursday at Raleigh Studios, where Netflix held an Emmy campaign event for her standup special Relatable.

“I care about the world, the environment and everything that’s going on. I have my opinions. I try not to bring it in. I’m not a political comedian. I’m political but I’m not the kind of person that’s going to talk about politics in standup. But I definitely think that we need a change, and we’ll figure out who that person is. I’m going to wait and see who ends up getting everybody’s vote and we’ll see who I get behind… I kind of have a candidate but I’m just going to wait.”
