More Sludge in the Swamp

Those who voted for Trump might recall his campaign promises to "drain the swamp" in Washington and give ordinary Americans a voice. Those of us who voted against him certainly recall thinking those claims sounded ridiculous, considering the source. Trump's cabinet picks demonstrate how much of a lie those campaign promises were.

Markos Moulitsas summed it up well in his op-ed in The Hill:

Trump is nominating primarily lobbyists, Wall Street cronies, and the ultra-wealthy to helm Cabinet departments, and in so doing, he is just pouring more sludge into the “swamp.” . . . . Number of working-class people in his administration? Zero.
