Comedy or drama? Hard to tell sometimes.
For someone whose campaign was largely based on “draining the swamp”, Donald Trump has managed to fill his Cabinet with a slimy crew of misfits, many with suspicious or outright illegal dealings with the Kremlin.
Are we still really to believe that Trump was unaware of all the double-dealing done on his behalf to grease his way into the White House? Oddly enough, many still do. As candidate Trump said just prior to the election in a rare moment of honesty, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters”.
Still, there are signs that the swamp may soon take Trump under. Special Councel Robert Mueller and his investigators won’t be so easily misled.
