"Deep State" is a codeword hotly traded by conservative US conspiracy theorists.
It refers to the "state in the state" - a term by which autocratic regimes brand internal rivals as enemies of the state.
(quoted and translated from here (biggest online-news in Germany)
You may rant against this all you want.
But the core is: do you want to see yourself living under an autocratic regime?
If not, stop using "deep state".
They are just internal rivals to Trump, and he plays you like a fiddle.

the term deep state is used by both sides of the fence. The deep state was once called the shadow government and was a conspiracy theory for years. Whats scary now is both sides openly recognise that there is a deep state. Meaning there is actors behind the scene who control what is going on and that conspiracy is now fact. Well its fact in the sense that TPTB want the public to know that there is a deep state/shadow gov.
