Ellen DeGeneres has hit back at the Trump family after Eric Trump accused her of being part of the deep state.

The 33-year-old took to Twitter to follow his father’s footsteps.

Combining an alt-right conspiracy of the invisible “deep state” which controls the government’s actions with his discontent for certain LGBTQ figureheads, the Trump son accused Twitter of trying to inflict the deep state on his through his recommendations.

The recommendations included President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres.

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

Ellen quickly shot back at the President’s offspring, joking that she did not have time to be a part of the “deep state” because of her schedule which is jam-packed with gay agenda meetings and Illuminati brunches with Beyoncé.

The comedian said that Eric’s accusation was “the craziest thing I’ve seen all week” and that she usually doesn’t “pay attention to politics, but unfortunately, politics pay attention to me.”

She continued: “First of all, which one is Eric?” she asked. “Did he kill the elephant or the cheetah? Second, what is Deep State? Is it near Dollywood? Because I’m in if it is.

“Apparently, Eric Trump thinks Twitter is trying to trick him into following liberals,” DeGeneres said, calling the claim “ridiculous.”

The star went on to explain that the “deep state” was not a threat to Trump and his administration, with the only true issue being the president himself.

She said: “No one has undermined Donald Trump more than Donald Trump.”

She then thanked Eric for thinking she was powerful enough to be part of a government conspiracy but carried on to explained that she was just too busy.

“Eric, I just want to say I’m honored that you think I’m powerful enough to be part of a government conspiracy.

“I’ve got my gay agenda meetings on Mondays, on Wednesday Beyoncé and I host an Illuminati brunch, and then Portia and I on the weekends are desperately trying to have a baby,” she quipped.

Eric’s comments came after President Trump attacked what he called the “Deep State Justice Dept” despite having appointed its Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.
