During an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the 72-year-old talk show host — who is a staunch advocate of Hillary Clinton — said the Republican candidate’s campaign is all show.

[dcquiz] “For us, it’s entertainment right now, but good lord, this is serious,” Springer said “Donald’s an entertainer. He has no knowledge or the temperament or the understanding of the decisions you have to make [to be president].” (RELATED: Jerry Springer: ‘There Is Absolutely No Way Donald Trump Becomes President’)

He said Trump is putting on an “outrageous show.”

“He’s viewing it as a television show — ‘What are the ratings? How am I doing?'” he continued. “I don’t believe he is evil — that this is all a show — but the fact that he plays it as a show shows a disrespect for the country.” (RELATED: Simon Cowell Reveals Why Americans Are So Drawn To Donald Trump)

“In America, the only two fields you can be widely known in if you’re not a politician is either sports or entertainment. Athletes are too young to run for president, so obviously it would have to come from the field of entertainment.”

“Did we know it was going to be Trump? Of course not. But we should have seen that it was gong to be an entertainer who hated the American government, and disrespected Washington and the president.” (RELATED: Obama Assures Hollywood: Donald Trump Will Not Be President)
