      Tonight's unsigned opinion piece in the New York Times has given rise to a new hashtag: #DeepStateThroat.

      It's a play on the term "Deep Throat", which was the pseudonym for Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward's secret source during the Watergate takedown of former president Richard Nixon.
