It's rather incredible that so many gullible people bagged what Trump was raking!
"Drain the swamp," he'd snarl at his rallies, and his wide-eyed crowds would bellow and clap and chant. Little did they know that beneath the mask and ocherous make-up was the Swamp King himself!
Kellyanne Conway reported that Trump loved it when his rally crowds would howl. "He found it too easy to dupe these people," she said on Fox News.
"He'd hand them these business cards that read 'How do you keep a moron in suspense? (Turn card over)' and the same message was printed on the opposite side," she said. "He'd laugh like a rascal," she snorted, "when he'd see them flipping those cards over like little propellers."
Now that the election is over, though, "Drain the Swamp" has morphed into "Stock the Swamp," and Trump has begun filling the swamp with some of the slimiest, grimiest swamp monsters we've ever encountered.
@Mashable reported on many of the these swamp creatures and rated them on three scales: Goldman Sachiness, Putin Power, and KKK Approval Rating. Read all about Trump's cabinet of critters HERE.
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
Deep in the swamp with its secrets
It's there we met a snake
'Tis now we sigh for recounts
And wish this news was fake.
It's with the stench we grapple
As murky waters rise
This snake's committed treason
With guile and Russian spies.
By Emily Dickinson:
Sweet is the swamp with its secrets,
Until we meet a snake;
’Tis then we sigh for houses,
And our departure take
At that enthralling gallop
That only childhood knows.
A snake is summer’s treason,
And guile is where it goes.
