Draining the Swamp

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Draining the Swamp

Just more evidence his Deplorable base is gullible, naive and truly uneducated. They collectively bought all of his campaign promises and only had to pay their dignity and self respect in exchange.

Trump transition staffers head to K Street despite lobbying ban

Three months after Trump moved into the White House, at least nine people who worked on his transition have registered as lobbyists.


Donald Trump promised last year to “drain the swamp” of Washington, starting with barring people who worked on his presidential transition from lobbying for six months afterward.

But three months after Trump moved into the White House, at least nine people who worked on his transition have registered as lobbyists, highlighting holes in the president’s pledge to keep people from cashing in on government service.

Many are registered to lobby the same agencies or on the same issues they worked on during the transition, a POLITICO review of lobbying disclosures found. A former "sherpa" who helped to guide Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos through the Senate confirmation process is now registered to lobby her department. The former head of the transition's tax policy team has returned to his old company to lobby Congress on tax reform. One ex-member of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative team is now registered as part of a team lobbying on behalf of a major steelmaker.

"Draining" apparently has an alternative meaning.
"On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." — H. L. Mencken, July 26, 1920, in The Baltimore Evening Sun
