Earlier today, a court unsealed more than 50 pages of text messages that were apparently exchanged between presidential lapdog Sean Hannity and noted crime enthusiast Paul Manafort over the course of a year. The texts, which span from July 2017 to June 2018, show Manafort desperate for an ally and a Hannity who’s just desperate, generally speaking.

You can read the release in full here. The Hannity portion, when read alone, is a grim, troubling text, but true art is supposed to challenge you. We urge you not to look away.
