Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday roasted President Trump’s son Eric for suggesting that she’s part of a “deep state” conspiracy.

Earlier this week, Eric Trump, executive vice president of The Trump Organization, tweeted his annoyance that Twitter is consistently suggesting that he follow liberals. Including the hashtag #DeepState, he tweeted a screenshot of Twitter suggesting that he follow Mrs. DeGeneres, as well as former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The younger Mr. Trump was widely mocked for the tweet, prompting Mrs. DeGeneres to humorously dedicate Thursday’s opening monologue to the “deep state” conspiracy theory, which suggests there is a group of top-level officials secretively working to undermine the president.



“It’s just the craziest thing I’ve seen all week, because I saw that movie with the lady having sex with a fish and still, this beats that,” Mrs. DeGeneres joked.

“I’m sorry to disappoint you. I am not part of the deep state,” she said. “Even if somebody wanted me to be involved, I don’t have that kind of time. I’ve got my gay agenda meetings on Monday, and on Wednesday, Beyoncé and I host an illuminati brunch, and then Portia [de Rossi] and I on the weekends are desperately trying to have a baby. So I can’t.”
