George Stephanopoulos Says The Deep State Is 'Filled With Patriots'


Clinton White House press secretary turned ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos declared that the “deep state” is “filled with patriots” during an appearance on “The View” Tuesday.

Once mocked as a right-wing “conspiracy theory,” a number of leftist pundits and media outlets have recently conceded that the deep state is not only real, but is an essential part of American life. The term — which was popularized by former President Donald Trump during the Russian collusion hoax — refers to unelected bureaucrats who effectively act as a fourth branch of government. The problem is most pronounced within the intelligence agencies.

On Tuesday, Stephanopoulos appeared on “The View” to promote his new book, “The Situation Room: The Inside Story of Presidents in Crisis.”

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

“People who go to work every single day on the frontlines of the most intense crises the country faces and do it to serve their country and to serve the presidency, not the president. They don’t care about political parties. They’re there to serve the presidency and the institution,” Stephanopoulos continued.

Stephanopoulos is far from the only left-wing thought leader to declare that the thing that was supposedly not real is not only very real, but good for America. Back in March, the New York Times ran a piece titled, “It Turns Out The Deep State Is Actually Kind Of Awesome.”

The piece pretends that when former President Trump vows to destroy the deep state, he is talking about friendly government workers and scientists with no political leanings. It spotlights a scientist who monitors asteroids, an EPA official who eliminates lead pipes, and a Department of Labor official who stops illegal child labor.

The puff piece makes no reference to the intelligence agencies, however.
