Jerry Springer says that he should be paid for the way the Republican debates mimic his shows.
Springer, who appeared on MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki’s show on Tuesday, was asked about the comparison between the 2016 race and his often racy and violent tabloid talk show.
“Well, they're absolutely right. In fact, when I first started watching the Republican debates, I said that, you know, if they're going to do my show, they should start paying me,” said Springer, who was the Democratic mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, in the late 1970s. “You know, it's one thing to have a television show like that, but that's not how you run a country. And it's disgraceful.”
