Earlier this week, Eric Trump’s brain must have misfired during a short window of time in which his personal caretaker wasn’t around to stop him from embarrassing his family, because he got on Twitter and freely shared his unfiltered thoughts with the world. At 9:18 p.m., which was way past his bedtime, Eric shared a screenshot of his “Who to Follow” section on Twitter, and it naturally included the names of the most retweeted Twitter users of all time: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Ellen DeGeneres. Eric, however, seemed to think this meant that Barack, Hillary, and Ellen were actually part of a “Deep State” conspiring to undermine his father’s presidency.
Hmm, let’s break that down for a moment. Why would the Deep State be focusing their efforts on Twitter? Like, our “Who to Follow” section is just three naked British dudes spreading their buttcheeks and smiling, so obviously the Deep State isn’t trying very hard to reach everybody. (Unless “SuckMeUK1989” is actually a front for a world conspiracy.)
Now, if Eric were to follow Ellen and immediately get a DM saying, “Be at the Chelsea Piers at midnight if you want string cheese. Oh and bring your dad’s tax returns” … THEN we’ll talk.
Also, would Eric even know if he were being used by the Deep State? Or is it going to take him a few years to realize that the woman he’s been forwarding Dad’s emails to is not actually the Disney original character Moana, like she claimed?
Ellen, for her part, has joined in the Twitter-wide mocking of Eric.
“It’s just the craziest thing I’ve seen all week, because I saw that movie with the lady having sex with the fish and still this beats that,” she said, in reference to The Shape of Water.
She added that Trump’s claim was “ridiculous” because “no one has undermined Donald Trump more than Donald Trump.” She also claimed she didn’t “have that kind of time” to recruit Deep State members via Twitter.
And then Eric Trump curled up with a lollipop and promised never to touch the big scary computer ever again.
