George Stephanopoulos admits the deep state is real – before praising it |

After years of the media denying its existence under the Donald Trump administration, at least one member of it is admitting that the deep state is real, with a twist.

While promoting a book, Stephanopoulos described the deep state as “full of patriots.”

“I interviewed about 100 White House service officers and these are people, they're relatively young, people who come from all over the government. The CIA, the DIA, the Department of Defense, the military and some people like to call these people the deep state. Well, the big thing I learned from doing this book is that the deep state is full of patriots,” he said with a straight face.

He continued: “The people who go to work every day on the front lines of the most intense crises facing the country and they do it to serve their country and to serve the presidency, not the president. They don't care about the political parties. They are there to serve the presidency and the institution.”

This comes shortly after the New Year's time posted a similar shot. In March, the Times published an article and video essay criticizing Trump's attacks on the deep state, not because the deep state isn't real, but because they think it's good.

“These are the Americans we employ. Although their work is often invisible, it makes our lives better,” they shamefully argued, as they feared Trump would fire them all if re-elected.
