It’s what they’ll say when caught in a lie. For instance, “it was the video”.
Or it’s what they’ll say when things don’t appear appropriate. Like when it’s discovered that former president Clinton met quietly with Atty. Gen. Lynch, who is investigating his wife . . . they met in an airplane hangar . . .not in D.C. . . . in Phoenix. it’s no that he actually appointed her to the N.Y. bench — calling in markers?
Or, it’s what they’ll say … or have someone else say, when they know they crossed the line . . . they send someone new, like Susan Rice, because people no longer believe their lies.
A “Narrative” is to spin the truth, a variation on their theme of “deflect and distract.”
Pardon my cynicism, forget those who died protecting our nation and our constitution if you like; I cannot!
A narrative is for the gullible who so want to believe the spin . . . for those who put themselves above principle and law.
