The Lyrics

ISTM that with the people he has chosen so far, Trump has gone for the most inappropriate he could find, and not even a nod towards the sort of swamp-draining mentality he espoused on the campaign trail.
Donald Trump in his campaigning said he would crack down:
There's a swamp in need of draining, he'll run out of town
Bent and corrupt politicians, steeped in greed and sin
So you might expect to see a little action once he's in

Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp, draining the swamp

So much for the golden future, signs bad from the start
He's picked plutocratic stooges, corruption at the heart
Could be that he doesn't care, [or] doesn't have a clue
Sorry, my Amer'can friends, looks like you're getting screwed

Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp, draining the swamp

You don't know what he's like

Draining the swamp, draining the swamp
Draining the swamp

Even I agree

The basic functioning of our democracy relies on this principal: win or lose an election, we all accept the result.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

The 1980s called; they want their foreign policy back.
Bernie Sanders - January 08, 2017 - Report this comment
He was talking about the media. Do people here think the media reflects the reality of American society?

Donald Trump’s victory reads to me like a realignment election, a historic break with the way interest and demographic groups have behaved in the U.S. in my lifetime. Yet, Democrats, you so far seem to have learned nothing and forgotten nothing. Indeed, if I were Donald Trump I would be cackling with glee at your post-election behavior, which seems ideally calculated to lock Trump in for a second term before he has been sworn in for the first.

Ignore this Phil guy who knows nothing of our election system. The guy is a Monsanto puppet and likes to start controversy. 1s
