    Ellen DeGeneres Hilariously Confirms That She Is Not Part Of The "Deep State"

    She was responding to Eric Trump's tweet.

    The other day, Eric Trump tweeted out the accounts Twitter suggested for him to follow, and it was a list of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Ellen DeGeneres. The tweet ended with #DeepState:

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

    The next morning, Ellen discovered she was trending on Twitter because Eric seemed to be suggesting she was part of the Deep State, and she decided to address it on her show:

    First, she defined the Deep State (a term she was unfamiliar with until she saw the tweet) as "a group of people that they believe are trying to undermine Donald Trump..."

    And then she confirmed it once and for all:


    She also said that even if somebody wanted her to be involved, she doesn't have that kind of time. Here's what her schedule looks like:
