If any reasonable, thinking American doubted the existence of a “deep state” before Donald Trump became president, they were treated to a four-year object lesson in just how real it is.
Trump, the ultimate outsider candidate who had no political skeletons, was too popular to be canceled, and could not be bought off because he was already a billionaire, rankled and frightened the powerbroker elite in Washington because he really did believe in his “America First” agenda that they will never accept because they profit off of selling America out.
As such, the deep state went after Trump with a vengeance that was unprecedented against a president, even prior Republicans like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, the latter of whom is fully ensconced in the elitist D.C. power structure. The intelligence community came together like never before to spread lies about Trump, drop false narratives and plant fake stories that were eagerly parroted by the legacy left-wing media that serves as little more than the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.
To emphasize just how hard the deep state went after Trump, he became the first president to be impeached twice, and on the flimsiest of reasons, though both times the Senate refused to convict him.
The final act of the politically weaponized deep state, however, came just a few weeks prior to the 2020 election in November.
In mid-October, the New York Post, citing emails, photos and other materials found on a laptop Hunter Biden had abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware in 2019, published a series of bombshell reportsdetailing what a scumbag he is and how he used his father’s connections to land lucrative business deals and positions with foreign governments and companies, with a kickback percentage going to Daddy Joe.
