NEW YORK (AP) - Jerry Springer, a man who knows something about out-of-control television, says the raucous Republican campaign is too much even for him.

“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, whose talk show has been known to devolve into wild brawls.

But while it’s one thing to have a TV show like that, “that’s not how you run a country,” Springer said in an interview with MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki on Tuesday. “It’s disgraceful.”

Springer is a former Democratic mayor of Cincinnati who is supporting Hillary Clinton for president.
