The New York Times admitted this week the deep state that has been undermining President Donald Trump exists, praising those who join the “conspiracy theory” as “heroes” that deserve our “gratitude.”

“President Trump is right: The deep state is alive and well. But it is not the sinister, antidemocratic cabal of his fever dreams. It is, rather, a collection of patriotic public servants — career diplomats, scientists, intelligence officers and others — who, from within the bowels of this corrupt and corrupting administration, have somehow remembered that their duty is to protect the interests, not of a particular leader, but of the American people,” wrote Michelle Cottle, a member of the editorial board.

The CIA whistleblower who touched off the impeachment inquiry led by Democrats came as top of the list, followed by three public servants. Cottle noted that White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney called them: “mostly career bureaucrats who are saying, ‘You know what, I don’t like President Trump’s politics, so I’m going to participate in this witch hunt.'”

“This is Mr. Trump’s deep state. For the sake of the nation, the American public should be clamoring for more patriots to join the conspiracy,” The New York Times.

On Tuesday, CNN reported that the anonymous senior administration official–author of a New York Times op-ed detailing the internal resistance against President Trump is now planning to publish a book about the president, titled, “A WARNING.”

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at the time that the official was actively undermining the American people who voted for the president, saying, “nearly 62 million people voted for President Donald J. Trump in 2016, earning him 306 Electoral College votes—versus 232 for his opponent. None of them voted for a gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times.”

During a Monday interview with Sean Hannity, of Fox News, President Trump said the White House may no longer have subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post.

“Look, they gave Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong,” President Trump said. “Look, all these people from The New York Times, which is a fake newspaper. We don’t even want it in the White House anymore, we’re probably going to terminate that and The Washington Post. They’re fake!”
