Ellen DeGeneres made a rare foray into politics this week to take the president’s son down a notch.

During her show, DeGeneres took time out to responded to comments made by Eric Trump on Twitter.

“If you know me at all, you know I don’t pay attention to politics. But unfortunately, politics pay attention to me.”

The host was referring to her unexpected appearance in a recent tweet from Trump Jnr.


Trump used the fact that Twitter suggested he follow her, along with former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as evidence of the so-called “Deep State.”

Addressing Trump through her monologue, DeGeneres explained to her audience that the “Deep State” is supposed to be a secret group trying to “undermine” the president, she added, “which is ridiculous, because no one has undermined Donald Trump more than Donald Trump.”

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

However, she added that even if she wanted to be part of the mission, she is just too busy.

“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.”

DeGeneres also had some more logical explanations for why Twitter suggested Eric Trump follow her, namely that both of his sisters, Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, already follow her on the platform.
