Ellen DeGeneres Responds in Hilarious Way After Trump's Son Makes Big League Accusation

January 03, 2018Jan 03, 2018

Eric Trump is the son of President Donald Trump. He has fiercely defended his father and has advocated continuing "draining the swamp" in Washington. He is extremely active on social media and has recently posted a tweet suggesting some interesting things about a few famous people. 

"Shocking... once again, here are the @Twitter 'suggestions' of who I should follow. #DeepState," tweeted Trump, referencing Obama, Clinton, and DeGeneres.


"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," according to reports.

Since the posting, Ellen commented on Eric's tweets. She even included some humor in her response while denying any involvement with government conspiracies.

“Apparently, Eric Trump thinks that Twitter is trying to trick him into following liberals,” DeGeneres, who’s been critical of the president, said. “So, I found out deep state is supposed to be a group of people they believe are trying to undermine Donald Trump — which is ridiculous because no one has undermined Donald Trump more than Donald Trump.”

“I just wanna say, Eric, I am honored that you think that I’m powerful enough to be part of a government conspiracy,” DeGeneres continued. “I am sorry to disappoint you, I am not part of the deep state. Even if somebody wanted me to be involved, I don’t have that kind of time.”

“But there’s probably another explanation for why Twitter suggested that you follow me. I mean it could be a conspiracy or it could be because your sister, Ivanka, follows me on Twitter, and your sister, Tiffany, follows me on Twitter. And maybe you should follow me. I mean, because I post a lot of cute videos,” said DeGeneres.
