John Cena talks Donald Trump and plays games in a Today Show appearance that will make his mom proud

It wasn't all fun and games for John Cena on The Today Show this morning.

Sure, he was there to promote his upcoming film Sisters, but the 15 time World champion has been doing all kinds of entertainment industry work during his hiatus from WWE. Sometimes that means hosting a Fox reality competition series, sometimes that means sitting in on a panel to discuss Republican Presidential candidate (and WWE Hall of Famer) Donald Trump's latest provactive proposal.

How does Cena handle the political hot potato when called upon to comment about Trump's proposal to ban all Muslim non-citizens from entering the United States in response to ISIL and other radical religious extremists groups targeting the United States?

Pretty well. Knowing that there are undoubtedly WWE fans who are Trump supporters (and that the guy who signs his paychecks is a friend of The Donald), he condemns the plan without being overly inflammatory himself. Here's what he said, and you can see the entire segment in the video below that:

We know Donald Trump. He's bold, he's brash. This is bold and this is brash. I'm with you, I don't know how it works out. The last time we did anything like it was in World War II and that was one of the more reprehensible acts by the United States of America: "We are the melting pot...except for you". That does not go along with our DNA. Trump is being Trump. There's no other way to say it.

If you're not a fan of wacky talk show games or current events, PWInsider also informs us that Cena spent time talking about how much he his missed his lady and was anxious to wrap up the morning filming so he could head across to town to see "my Nicole".

So there was even something for Total Divas shippers.

How do you think John Cena did in preparing for the rest of his Hollywood career?

NOTE: We aren't a hard news blog, so we'd ask that you keep your discussion to Cena's appearance and not the Presidential race or more serious issues. If the comments head to real issues, please be respectful and don't antagonize fellow Cagesiders who have different points of view.
