"The swamp" traditionally consisted of relatively smart greedy people. I expect there are still some of them around. But the trump swamp is composed of mostly stupid greedy people. Until corporate money is banned from political campaigns and organizations, there is no fucking way any swamp will be drained. And that's a fact, Jack.
