Ellen DeGeneres Uses "Donald Trump" to Give Ricky Gervais a Pre-Halloween Scare

Ricky Gervais stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, and to kick off Halloween weekend, the host couldn't let the star go without giving him a good scare. While the two discussed the presidential election, Ricky admitted that the fact that Donald Trump has gotten this far (and continues to receive praise) is a very scary thing. Ellen, who is famous for scaring celebrities on her show (and forcing her innocent producer to go through haunted houses), took the comedian's fears up a notch when she had a member of her staff dress up as Donald and jump out of the coffee table. While Ricky didn't seem too frightened at first, he admitted that the stunt almost gave him a heart attack.
