“If you know me at all, you know I don’t pay attention to politics,” says Ellen DeGeneres. “But unfortunately, politics pays attention to me.”
What does she mean? On Tuesday night, the chat-show phenomenon, out lesbian, and wholly harmless liberal celebrity became the target of a wacky tweet by Eric Trump. Evidently “Fredo” suspects that both Ellen and Twitter are instruments of a #DeepState conspiracy to control his social media feed.
Ellen is nice, but not too nice, lucidly explaining what the second son meant by his deranged remark. And her attempt to calm his raging right-wing paranoia is very funny — and cutting.
