Larry King has responded to his controversial interview with Carrie Prejean, telling "Entertainment Tonight" that he did no wrong.

King told "ET" that he "didn't understand it all" when Prejean call him "inappropriate," removed her microphone and threatened to walk off his show Wednesday night.

"I won't even dignify it," he said. "I didn't ask anything wrong. I didn't know what was inappropriate. I'm doing my job."

Donald Trump agrees. The Miss Universe owner told HLN's "Showbiz Tonight" that he as surprised by Prejean's reaction.

"'Inappropriate' is more of a sexual term, as far as I'm concerned," Trump told "Showbiz Tonight" in an interview to air Thursday. "I mean -- inappropriate? He asked a very, very easy question and I was surprised that she just didn't say, 'Hey, listen, I can't answer that question.' Instead she wants to walk off the stage? It was very surprising."

"Anyway, life goes on," King said.

The interview airs on Thursday's "Entertainment Tonight."
