Phil Donahue has never been known to be much of a conservative, politically speaking. But on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources,” he bestowed a compliment on President Trump – likening him to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.
The TV icon told CNN’s Brian Stelter that if “The Phil Donahue Show” was still on the air, he’d be first in line to interview Trump.
“It’s counter-intuitive not to,” Donahue said. “As you know, the coin of our realm is the size of our audience. If we don’t draw a crowd, next week we will be parking cars. And Trump draws a crowd.”
Donahue added, “He’s Elvis!”
