“I don’t want to interview Trump,” Leno said during an interview with Fox 411. “I came up in the era when Clinton was horny and Bush was dumb. It was a simpler, funny time.” (RELATED: Simon Cowell Reveals Why Americans Are So Drawn To Donald Trump)

“Now it is all race baiting and homophobia and Islamophobia.”

“There are still plenty of jokes there, but there is an ugliness to this campaign that I don’t find attractive at all, and I really don’t want to joke about somebody saying, ‘All Muslims should be kicked out of the country or ‘Because a guy is Mexican, he can’t be a judge.'”

“It is tricky to find the joke there.”

Leno said he would rather interview someone like Caitlyn Jenner. (RELATED: Obama Assures Hollywood: Donald Trump Will Not Be President)

“I have known Caitlyn for a long time,” he said. “She is still very much the same person, still very competitive.”
