Eric Trump raised eyebrows on Twitter when he suggested that daytime television host Ellen DeGeneres is a part of the “Deep State” conspiracy.

President Donald Trump’s second youngest son tweeted a screenshot of Twitter follow suggestions which included Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and DeGeneres.

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

The “Deep State” conspiracy theory claims that a shadow network within the government is working to undermine elected government officials. It’s unclear whether Trump was poking fun at the theory or is a believer but Twitter found his tweet entertaining especially since none of the three currently hold elective office or are government employees.
