So the number one not-overtly-racist/misogynist/anti-queer reason I heard from people for voting for Mr. Trump and putting MY LIFE AND THE LIVES OF MY FRIENDS IN DANGER was that he'd "drain the swamp," get rid of lobbyists and insiders and GUESS WHAT, IT WAS ALL HORSESHIT, YOU STUPID-ASS MOTHERFUCKERS.

"Drain the swamp and get rid of insiders and corruption" by filling the transition team up with high-ranking corporate lobbyists and old political veterans from the Bush era:

"If you voted for Trump because he’s ‘anti-establishment,’ guess what: You got conned."
