Ellen Degeneres To Eric Trump: No Time For Deep State Collusion

Eric Trump Ellen DeGeneres

We're only four days into the new year and already Pres. Trump has seemingly put the country on a path to mutual destruction (thanks to his "button" tweet about North Korea), gotten into a nasty public spat with his former campaign CEO Steve Bannon and been revealed as a three-TV watching cheeseburger-in-bed eater. Nope, it was because she's been implicated in a massive government conspiracy known as "the deep state" by the president's son, Eric Trump!

Poking fun at the weird claim, the daytime host joked, "First of all, which one is Eric?"

As for that (mostly) good-natured denial, Degeneres did have one sharp moment: She said she was unsure of which Trump brother she was addressing - the one who killed the elephant or the one who killed the cheetah? In August 2016, Professor Eric told CBS This Morning that if his daughter were to ever be harassed in the workplace, he would hope she switched careers or found another company to work for - and not actually, you know, receive justice.

Ellen DeGeneres addressed that pesky little Deep State rumor on her talk show yesterday. "Because I'm in if it is", she said. And then Portia and I on the weekends are desperately trying to have a baby so I can't.

Everton Could Give £27m Transfer Liverpool Debut If Registered By Midday
There were a number of strikers we looked at but this is the one we decided on'. 'I heard that Yannick Bolasie was going on loan. The former Crystal Palace manager also identified the qualities that convinced Everton to move for the 26-year-old.

She says the idea is "the craziest thing".

The "deep state" is a term used, typically by the more paranoid right-wing media folks but also often by the president, to reference evil forces working behind the government, usually at the expense of the American people and, lately, always at the expense of Trump. And maybe you should follow me.

Unfortunately, she added, she has no time to be part of deep state.

She pointed out that Eric Trump's sisters Tiffany and Ivanka both follow her on Twitter, which may be why it recommended he follow her. "I am sorry to disappoint you, I am not part of the deep state". Usually, though, it's because of a charming celebrity interview she conducted, a cute cat video she shared or some other feel-good bit of puffery.
