Eric Trump is totally on to Ellen DeGeneres.
She may play all calm and cool and funny and happy and peaceful and loving on television, but the President’s son knows what’s really going on here.
And he’s finally come out and revealing his truth to the world…
… Ellen DeGeneres is a key member of The Deep State!
This is a term often thrown around by Sean Hannity and other like-minded conservatives.
It gained momentum during the 2016 Presidential campaign after being trumpeted by ex-White House strategist Steve Bannon and it refers to an alleged shadowy entity of civil servants.
This shadowy entity of civil servants purportedly coordinates efforts and policies behind-the-scenes to delegitimize the Donald Trump administration.
Many members of the mainstream press, someone like Eric Trump would argue, are working with The Deep State to bring down the commander-in-chief.
How does Ellen fit in?
What has she done to earn this reputation?
But consider the following Tweet by Eric Trump, which has gone viral for its hilarious accusation:
“Shocking… once again, here are the @Twitter “suggestions” of who I should follow. #DeepState,” wrote Eric as a caption to the screen capture of who Twitter thinks he may want to follow.
One person listed there is the previous President of the United States.
Another person listed there is the candidate Donald Trump defeated to becomePresident.
(If either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton are members of the supposed Deep State, well, they aren’t very deep undercover.)
And the third person is beloved talk show host, comedian and former American Idol judge, Ellen DeGeneres.
Ellen is very likely a Democrat, but she actually isn’t very outspoken when it comes to politics.
Yes, she once sent a message to Donald Trump that was based around Finding Dory.
But she mostly talks on her show about love and respect and hope, which… okay, nevermind. We get it now.
These aren’t exactly Donald Trump-espoused values, are they?
As you might expect, Eric Trump’s Tweet has become quite a source of ridicule on social media.
Some folks are trying to teach him how Twitter works (“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.”) …
… while others are just openly mocking him.
Said another user, pretty much summing up Eric’s statement:
This is the most unintentionally hilarious tweet of the very very new year!
Fast forward 362 days and we have a feeling it may remain the most unintentionally hilarious Tweet of the year.
Good luck, trying to top it, everyone else on the planet.
This is gonna be a challenge.
