Bret Stephens Suggests Hannity’s a ‘Lunatic’ for Believing the Deep State Is Trying to Undermine Trump
STEPHENS: "Well, it wasn’t about Hannity. I used him as an example because he was purveying or suggesting that the CIA was conducting false flag or might be conducting false flag operations to spy on Americans while making it seem that the spying was being done by Russia, which is a classic example which happened in 1963 that was called the paranoid style in American politics. The idea there’s a deep state that’s surveilling you, monitoring you, reading your e-mail. This is a phenomenon on the left as well as the right. It’s been in Hollywood but it’s a lunatic phenomenon. I think a right wing commentator offer a view that’s worthy of a movie like 'The Paralax View' from the 1970s."
