Eric Trump apparently thinks talk show host Ellen Degeneres is part of the so-called “deep state.”
 
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump’s second son shared a screenshot of Twitter’s suggestions for accounts he may like to follow. They included his father’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama and DeGeneres.

Shocking... once again, here are the @Twitter “suggestions” of who I should follow. #DeepState

The “deep state” conspiracy theory, which has been repeatedly pushed by the president, revolves around the idea that a deep-rooted civil service is working to delegitimize his administration. It’s unclear whether Eric Trump was claiming that Clinton, Obama and DeGeneres were part of the “deep state,” but his post prompted widespread ridicule:

Not proud to admit this, but I would pay $20 to sit with Eric Trump for ten minutes and have him explain Ellen DeGeneres' shadowy role in the Deep State.

Eric, there is no Deep State, but your dad says the Deep State comprises non-presidentially appointed civil servants who serve in multiple administrations. Obama and Clinton, by definition, cannot be members of the Deep State. As for Ellen, are you daft?

Hi Eric, I know you’re not the smart one, but Twitter’s algorithm looks at who you searched for most recently when making suggestions. It looks like you might have recently searched for a Democrat, buddy.

You do realize none of the 3 recommends are employed by any state, deep or otherwise? In other news, there’s actually no mister under your bed either.
