President-elect Trump vowed to "drain the swamp" in Washington -- to stop corruption by getting rid of the inside influence of wealthy contributors, money bundlers, and lobbyists. But he filled his cabinet with campaign contributors, Wall Street financiers and billionaires who represent the elite and not the common folks Trump said he was fighting for. All the while it seems his campaign and transition team were having hidden meetings with the Russians.
Now we have Greg Gianforte, another near billionaire, hooking his wagon to Trump, and claiming he will help him drain the swamp even after he has seen the contradiction between Trump's words and his actions.
We heard promises about a better Washington, but the reality looks very different. We now have a President who brags about "grabbing women by the p****", and a Congressman-elect who grabs the press by the throat.
