Playbooks are so educational. In the theater, one is usually given a playbook about whatever show one has arrived to see. A playbook is a valuable tool of information. But there is another type of playbook. This playbook is one most of us know little of. But then again, most of us would never think of aiding and abetting a crazed insurrectionist.
Sean Hannity, however, is not like most of us. Hannity is on the hot seat. More and more texts are emerging showing just how enmeshed in the crazed traitor’s life, Hannity really was. Take this text exchange between the Fox non-news host and Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
In these texts, Hannity sagely advises Kayleigh in a “five-point approach” in dealing with Trump. “No more stolen election talk,” a frenzied Hannity texts. Wow. This is certainly a different story than what Hannity’s toxic network puts out daily. Is Hannity, with this text acknowledging the 2020 Presidential election, was — gulp — REAL?
That is certainly not what a multitude of Fox hate-pundits imply. Hannity also tells Kayleigh to keep the insurrectionist away from people of bad intent, “feeding him misinformation. about election fraud.”
“Key now. No more crazy people,” a worried Hannity texts. We can all see how THAT turned out. “Love that,” a perky McEnany responds. Isn’t it lovely how texts can tell a story — the REAL story?
And there are many more texts from many different people. There’s a playbook, alright, only it’s a playbook of Trump insiders trying their best to deal with a treacherous and insane failure.
It will be interesting to hear more. Perhaps some of these texts will be read aloud on national television during the January 6 televised hearings. I suspect they will. Playbooks always have stories to tell, and I suspect this playbook is but the tip of the iceberg.
