Probably too busy trying to find more of "The Best People" to work in the swamp.

Just another example of the Trump syndicate, I mean administration, using cabinet positions as personal fiefdoms for private gain.

This is all so true.

These people are on the make, they are hustlers and grifters by nature and habit over their long lives. Trump attracts this type like moths to a flame or ... perhaps more appropriately ... flies to hot steaming dung. They are feasting.

He got what he wanted for himself and his sojourners ... tax breaks that are huge windfalls to these greedy, avaricious, grasping hedonists. They have to change the narrative now and get people's minds off of that silly 'swamp' idea ...

They can't take it with them. At their ages they should be examining their consciences and preparing their souls. There isn't room in the casket for all that stuff ...

Kind of like Biden helping his son.


Bruce orr, andy mcabe come to mind as well with husband wife shady deals. then there are the Clintons and Podesta and his brother making huge profits from Russian connections....and the many who have yet to be discovered.


Let's prioritize cases, Chao would be waiting years in line for her turn at an investigation.


Scandal free Obama admin???????????????????????????????????

DC is a swamp and always will be no matter who is President.

Oh?

Please list specific, supported by fact examples of just HOW he is doing that.

BTW, saying the Democrats are just as bad is irrelavent in this discussion as Trump and his supporters promised he was different and the truth is he is just the SOSDD.

Its just people who voted for Trump expected that he was going to address these types of abuses. He was being sold as an outsider with no political interests and he was going to address corruption, his campaign slogan of "draining the swamp" is laughable at this point.


One of the most corrupt administrations in decades.

You could point this out how Trump has NOT drained the swamp....but that's the most that you can put on Trump with this.
With you there. So you think that Trump will come out swinging to denounce this corruption? What do you think he will do to Mitch? Pull down his britches, put him over his knee and give him swats with the golden paddle?

The difference is that right wingers would be the ones screaming "an outrage of a crisis" if a dem were caught doing the same thing. And of course, in this case, it's YOU who are claiming this is "business as usual".
