Ellen DeGeneres addressed rumors that she’s in the deep state. The comedian and talk show host spoke about the rumors while hosting her popular talk show. She stated she woke up and saw that she was trending and at first she thought it was due to her new television show Ellen’s Game of Games. The show premiered to high ratings so naturally, she was shocked when she discovered that wasn’t the cause for trending. Instead, Ellen DeGeneres woke up to find that she was the subject of a vast conspiracy theory that was tweeted by Eric Trump. According to the tweet, Ellen DeGeneres is part of the deep state or a shadow government organization that is trying to overthrow President Trump. Eric Trump hasn’t deleted the tweet where he hashtagged #deepstate. You can see it below along with the video of Ellen DeGeneres’ response.
Ellen began her response by asking which one of Trump’s sons Eric was and then went into a bit of a speech saying she didn’t even know what the deep state was let alone be part of it.
Eric Trump’s tweet has more than 11,000 likes and remains online. The tweet is very enlightening and shows that Eric Trump greatly believes in many of the conspiracy theories that are populating the Internet. It’s also interesting that many past presidents have joined forces for various causes.
When America was recently ravaged by multiple hurricanes, five former presidents joined together to raise funds for victims. Presidents George Bush Sr. and Jr., Bill Clinton, Obama, and Jimmy Carter started the organization One America Appeal where they worked together, raised funds, and even held a relief. benefit concert to support Americans in need.
Eric Trump’s suspicions at the possibility of following Hillary Clinton or President Barack Obama are a bit surprising to many. Twitter continually shows suggested friends to those based on similar interests and the people who are followed by your followers.
It’s very likely that Twitter’s algorithms compiled the suggested friends’ list and there was nothing conspiracy-related connected to it.
Still, the tweet drew out many of President Trump’s fans who shared photos, GIFs, and memes in response to the post.
