Eric Trump Suggests Ellen DeGeneres is Part of 'Deep State' Conspiracy Because of Twitter Algorithm

Wednesday Jan 3, 2018

Eric Trump suggested that Ellen DeGeneres is part of the "deep state" conspiracy because Twitter suggested he follow the comedian, EW reports.

The deep state is "an alleged entity that coordinates efforts by government employees and others to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership," according to Wikipedia.

Taking to Twitter, Trump shared a screenshot of his "who to follow" section on Twitter, which includes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and DeGeneres. According to Twitter's help page, the "who to follow" suggestions are "generated by algorithms, which means you may or may not know the accounts or find them relevant."

Nevertheless, Trump wrote that the suggestions are more nefarious. He tweeted: "Shocking... once again, here are the @Twitter 'suggestions' of who I should follow. #DeepState."

EW points out it didn't take long for Twitter users to mock the first son.
