There’s a term conspiracy theorists use (I saw it used by an antivaxx acquaintance) to refer to when a Deep State actor kind of lets slip their glee with watching the herding of the sheeple; when they pull back the curtain a bit and give a knowing nod (metaphorically).
But the term slips my mind. Anyone know?
(ETA: I am not a conspiracy theorist or a Deep State actor)
(But that’s just what a conspiracy theorist or Deep State actor would say, isn’t it?)
