White House Soap Operas Distract From Real Global Dangers

In the liberty movement, we often refer to the historical tactic of the Roman “bread and circuses” when describing the deliberate mass distraction of the public of today. In the era when Roman emperors supplanted the senate and dominated political and social life, it was deemed advantageous to create various forms of “entertainment,” often violent, in order to keep the citizenry preoccupied and thus less likely to physically act against the power structure as the empire suffered economic decline. The use of bread and circuses continues into our era, but the method has been refined and the manipulations have become in some ways more subtle.

For example, in ancient Rome the horrors of the Colosseum were meant to keep the public’s attention AWAY from the government. Today, the soap opera of government keeps people’s attention away from the true power brokers within global finance.

The White House itself has been molded into just another reality TV show, and mainstream media coverage has been relentless. With Donald Trump (no stranger to reality TV) at center stage, it is difficult for the citizenry to gauge what is politically legitimate and important. What we are bombarded with is an ever escalating drama between Trump, his staff, and the media, and instead of ignoring the theater many people are desperately seeking to interpret the meaning behind a show that is actually meaningless.

Every two weeks or so another episode develops in which Trump, playing the character of the brash and aggressive “populist,” fires one of his cabinet as if The Apprentice never ended, but was simply transferred to the Oval Office. Some people find this entertaining as it is Trump doing what he is most recently famous for doing. Those on the political left interpret this as reckless abandon and confirmation that their fears over Trump being ill suited to the presidency are justified. Still others in the liberty movement who originally supported Trump’s campaign are perhaps desperately looking for vindication. They wanted so badly to avoid the inevitable evils of a Clinton regime that they are now willing to give Trump a pass on almost anything, and they argue that the endless turnover in the Trump White House is Trump fulfilling his election promise of “draining the swamp.”

It is important to note that Trump is NOT draining the swamp of elitism in Washington D.C. The public is so focused on who Trump gives the boot they are forgetting to pay attention to the institutions that never leave. But what do I mean by this?

Let’s look at the some of the more widely publicized staff changes at the White House. Dina Powell, a Goldman Sachs alumni, was recently replaced as National Security Adviser, and so, the argument that Trump is “draining the swamp” persists. Yet, Powell was replaced by H.R. McMaster, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and hardly a stranger to elitist circles.

Gary Cohn, another Goldman Sachs agent, has left his post as Chief Economic Adviser and has been replaced by “conservative” Larry Kudlow, ostensibly as Trump is “cleaning house” and removing globalist influences in preparation for his war to balance the trade deficit. Yet, Kudlow is was a campaign coordinator who worked closely with the likes of Bill Clinton and John Podesta, as well as other major Democrat personalities. He began his career as a staff economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and oversaw the fall of Bear Stearns which was one of the sparks that launched the 2008 credit crisis. This guy is in no way a true conservative, nor is he some kind of anti-globalist replacement for Gary Cohn.

Rex Tillerson’s firing, one of the most recent dramas, has led to the position of Secretary of State being filled by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Pompeo is often portrayed as a former “Tea Party congressmen”, yet he is a rabid supporter of mass surveillance of the American people by the NSA through FISA related programs, and has referred to Wikileaks as a “non-state hostile intelligence service.” First, this only proves further the “Tea Party” label has been so thoroughly co-opted by the establishment that it is laughable to refer to it in any relation to true conservatives and liberty champions. Second, it also shows that Trump has no intention of making any significant changes to the Beltway; only cosmetic changes are allowed.

And so it goes on and on. If one looks closely at the Trump administration, they will find that the people within the cabinet are changing constantly, but the elitist and globalist organizations and ideologies those people represent are always present within the White House. They never leave.

The swamp is not being “drained,” it is simply being shifted around so that the American people can’t keep up with the names of the swamp creatures and the positions they hold.

Ever since the days of Woodrow Wilson, a president purportedly controlled from within the White House by adviser Col. Mandel House (the founder of the Council On Foreign Relations), it has been common practice for globalists to use presidents as proxies. That is to say, the president is generally a mascot held up to the public as a target for political criticism or as a rallying tool to push the population in a particular direction. All the while, the true power brokers work from behind the curtain, dictating policy towards the paths of either globalization or disaster.

Trump is an interesting case as far as this 4th generation warfare is concerned. Never in modern times has a president’s rhetoric been so openly hostile to the globalists, while at the same time harboring those very same globalists within his administration. Never before has a fabricated battle between the White House and globalization as an ideology been used as a distraction from globalism itself. This is something entirely new.

The issue is something I warned about consistently before Trump was even elected, and it is the reason I predicted that he would become president. Trump, in my view according to the evidence so far, is controlled opposition. He is a foil for the globalist battle against ideas of conservatism, sovereignty and nationalism. Instead of attacking these ideas outright (a losing battle), the elitists have presented a strawman in the form of Donald Trump. Trump’s actions seem to follow conservative guidelines but his policies are poorly executed, which sets the stage for future failures on an epic scale.

As I mentioned in my article Trump Trade Wars A Perfect Smokescreen For A Market Crash, the timing of Trump’s initiatives could not be more perfect…for international financiers and central banks, that is.

Currently, the Federal Reserve and other central banks around the world are embarking on a process of tightening stimulus measures that have been artificially propping up stock markets and bond markets since the 2008 crash. In particular, the Fed’s move to continue hiking interest rates and cut its balance sheet as negative economic data rolls in has set light to the fuse of a fiscal explosion. Market dependency on cheap debt is total. Corporate debt levels are at all time highs as companies sink further and further into the red in a desperate attempt to inflate their own stock prices through stock buybacks. The Fed has been facilitating this market manipulation for quite some time, but now the party is over.

With each new rate hike and balance sheet reduction markets become more volatile and unstable. The Fed under new chairman Jerome Powell is well aware of what it is doing, considering Powell warned of the consequences of this as far back as 2012. It is highly unlikely though that when the economy crashes central bankers will get the blame.

As March rolls into April, it is also important to note that the Fed’s balance sheet reductions are slated to expand to $30 billion per month or more. So far, the Fed has shown a habit of cutting far beyond their publicly stated goals.  With markets dropping by thousands of points every time there is a balance sheet reduction, the instability is only going to increase exponentially.

Also, is it just a coincidence that every new Trump tariff and trade war announcement seems to take place at the same time as the Fed’s rate hikes and balance sheet cuts?  This sure does make it appear as though Trump is the cause of the subsequent stock market declines rather than the central bank, doesn’t it?

Trump’s continued soap opera theater is building up the narrative of a slapdash presidency run by a bumbling novice. Trump’s initiation of a trade war without necessary preparations, such as giving corporations incentives to move manufacturing back to the U.S. and creating production independence, is an excellent smokescreen for a collapse of stock markets and a dumping of U.S. Treasury bonds by foreign creditors.

For those wondering why globalist elements would deliberately crash the American economy, I suggest they read my article The Economic Endgame Explained. To summarize, in order to reach their openly stated goals of a one world currency system, as well as total centralization of global economic administration, certain appendages of the current system must be sacrificed. One of those appendages is the American economy as it exists now, along with the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency.

Such an attack on our country and our society would not go without notice or possible retaliation. Therefore, the banking elitists need a scapegoat. I have said it before and I’ll say it again — there is no better scapegoat that the Trump White House. Why? Because the Trump White House has been painted since the election as a symbol of stalwart conservatism, even though it is not. The demonization of conservative principles such as limited government, true free markets, personal liberty, etc. becomes much easier when globalists can attach them to an international catastrophe such as a financial collapse.

And, since Trump has been set up as the strawman for conservative ideals, attaching catastrophe to Trump also vicariously attaches catastrophe to the rest of us.

The only way to undermine this 4th generation warfare tactic is for conservatives to ignore the White House soap opera and to question Donald Trump’s policies publicly when they do not meet logical or practical standards. Blindly supporting Trump because of his rhetoric only harms our cause in the long run, and refusing to acknowledge the fact that he has surrounded himself with the very globalists he is supposedly at war with only sets us up for tragedy. If we remain skeptical and maintain our principles, however, it becomes much harder for the mainstream media or anyone else to implicate us in any great calamity that Trump is blamed for.

    And Trump is doing all this on purpose. The snowflakes haven’t even noticed anything real going on since he got in. He yells squirrel and they all run after it, amazing.

    • durangokidd says:

      “It is important to note that Trump is NOT draining the swamp of elitism in Washington D.C.”

      This is TRUE.

      TRUMP is not draining the “SWAMP”. He can’t. WE must do that. We must do that while we have a True patriot in the Oval Office to lead US and withstand the heat from the NWO Media.

      The Swamp is comprised of the Deep State bureaucrats supported by the established power brokers in both political parties in a “I’ll scratch your back if you’ll scratch mine” kind of relationship which could best be described as a “three some” with the Intel Community fucking America in the ass while giving the faggots in the House & Senate a “reach around” and simultaneously giving MIC a blow job..

      The Dems are now completely controlled by the Left …. the FAR LEFT. The Far Left is politically speaking, a very long way from the vast Majority of the American People, for two reasons: First, the electorate is getting older and slightly more conservative. Second, between Bush & Obama, they nearly destroyed the USA as a first world country, and the American People recognized (to their credit) that four years of Hillary Clinton would literally, put the last nail in our coffin.

      The “elite” are primarily elected officials who must be replaced by the VOTERS. The large majority of American Patriots of every stripe must infiltrate the Republican Party and financially support the TEA PARTY where you live; then vote for True Patriots in the Republican Primaries: replacing the “SWAMP CREATURES” on the Party ticket where they live.

      This is what is happening in Arizona and this process can be repeated in every State of the Union. This is the process that I have described here repeatedly since 2010. Remember all of the naysayers who said that ‘Voting doesn’t matter” and that “if voting mattered they wouldn’t let US do it” before the 2016 Election ???

      VOTING IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS. ENGAGE !!! 🙂

      • Anonymous says:

        durango, here’s a famous quote that’s actually true:

        “If voting mattered they wouldn’t let us do it.”

        FYI, US Presidents are selected, not elected.

        Trump was selected because TPTB knew he’d go along with the NWO agenda and everything else they want, or else he would never have been selected. The voting process is a joke, a secret popularity contest among them, just for the hell of it, to see who could’ve or should’ve won. As far as political parties go they are simply a way to divide us and keep us divided.

        • durangokidd says:

          ANON: You must be one of those Russian Trolls we keep hearing about. Anyone who followed the election process in 2016 knows that Hillary was the “selected candidate” and that TRUMP was a populist outsider who never had a chance.

          Both Parties opposed him, the NWO/ intelligence community/ Deep State opposed him, and all of the LSM opposed him. Anyone with half a brain understands that the AMERICAN PEOPLE elected TRUMP to repudiate the Status Quo.

          No wonder you remain, “anonymous”. 🙂

        • Captn. Jack says:

          I figured Trump to be just like the rest of the swamp critters when he didn’t even try to stop or even mention Geoengineering(chemtrails) or weather modification.

    It doesn’t help that the national discourse has been taken over and Americans are being told what to believe by hookers, whores, prostitutes, porn stars, strippers, Playboy Playmates being interviewed by homosexuals (e.g., Anderson Cooper and Stormy Daniels and the up-coming 60-Minutes interview).

    I gather Stormy Daniels just released some new anal videos on Pornhub. Important policy wanker stuff. A must see. [pray to God and “Don’t look at it Marion. No matter what happens, shut your eyes, Marion, and don’t look at it.” type sarcasm]

    I am not really much of an organized religion guy. Organized religion is kind of like voting Democrat or Republican. Right now, radical extreme Islam is voting Democratic. But I most certainly definitely am a strong believer in a higher power.

    In the universe I believe in, you don’t call out God, and you always, ALWAYS, give the Devil his due. And right now, what is going on really scares the crap out of me. Only in America would professional politicians take Sodom and Gomorrah spit in God and the Devil’s eye and double down on the kind of evil we are talking about here.

    You are full of s-h-i-t. It has not been going on for 50 years, we’ve never seen a shit show like this before.

    President Trump even fired his Secretary of State on twitter last week and not a mention of it here and Tillerson didn’t even have a twitter account. Twitter. That is how the SoS was fired! Who the hell does that? But you seem to think its normal and usual. What a moron.

    One marital affair after another and every week more people either resign or are fired and half of you here are so liberal minded you don’t think all of this never ending crazy circus drama is alarming. All of his aides have gone, most of his legal team attorneys have bailed on him and high level officers tossed out in “You’re Fired!” fashion, like on The Celebrity Apprentice. Most of his staff he hired or appointed are gone. He’s had numerous extramarital affairs and admits to an affair with a sleezy porn star right after his wife gave birth and then denies it.

    Anyone who can’t see that our President has the morals of a snake is either a libtard with their head up their ass or are operating with 4 brain cells at best. Or maybe you are just like him with no morals to speak of. What a bunch of liberal imbeciles to think this insane circus isn’t alarming.

    • the blame-e says:

      “. . . we’ve never seen a shit show like this before.”

      That’s because we haven’t seen a civilian politician in the presidency since Truman. So, it’s been even longer, right?

      “Anyone who can’t see that our President has the morals of a snake is either a libtard with their head up their ass or are operating with 4 brain cells at best. Or maybe you are just like him with no morals to speak of. What a bunch of liberal imbeciles to think this insane circus isn’t alarming.”

      So libtards voted for Trump? You clearly haven’t got a clue.

    Trump is stuck deep in big pharma pockets, causually ignoring who guards the Afghan poppies and who turns them into opioid pills for sale. More drug fake war BS! Make all illegal plant drugs legal and stop the war on the American people. The inherit rights of humanity include self medication from natures bounty specifically all plant life. Trump gets a low score in this matter.

    • Paranoid says:

      Pardon me: But I couldn’t care less about the Opium issue. Yup, every time I’ve been operated on they gave them to me and I always took two and kept the rest for: “IF I needed them”. People who are stupid enough to get hooked on that stuff I can live without. Everyone gets buried so they don’t cost me any more and I’m rid of them, WIN.

  6. southside says:

    Sick of the whole damn system. It needs to be taken down and started all over

    • Heartless says:

      Thank you ‘southside’. I couldn’t agree with any comment more. We need to reset this mess. Go back to the original plans. Brandon has it close; but, not close enough. The global initiatives against the US are winning. We’re in a war already and no shots have been fired by us in our own defense. Driving back from a job this morning I was listening to the radio. Talk stuff. I said just what you did with one ‘little’ addition. “…. and we need to do it NOW before there is no one left in this country who believes in it”.

  7. southside says:

    This just in: McMaster replaced by John Bolton as National Security Advisor. World turns yet again……

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      Bolton is a hardcore Bush-era turd. Bringing him into the White House just amps up the a-hole factor in the US government and will stir the population up some more.

      I agree Trump is there to do the controlled demolition of the US economy. America is slated to become a third world nation of cheap multiracial labour. They know the truth: not in a million years will America’s black population be as productive as its white population. And with the racial future getting darker by the day, the elites will just pull the plug on the middle class.dream.

      • durangokidd says:

        I don’t like Bolton either. He is a war monger. But TRUMP will make the decision when his Generals, Mattis and Kelly, tell him its time and that he has run out of all options.

        In the meantime, Bolton on board will reinforce the idea to KIM that TRUMP is not playing games. KIM will capitulate to live to fight another day when TRUMP is out of the Oval Office.

        Time is on KIM’S side if he is patient and puts his war machine on hold while quietly improving his products and technology.

        TRUMP will attack KIM’S missiles and nukes after 2020 in his second term. 🙂

  8. This is probably as good a description of the current situation as any, but it is something we already know. Tell me something I don’t know. Better yet make some suggestions.

    The fact is that the people in power are willing to kill. They are not all insane killers, but it only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole barrel. The actors we are watching are the fifth tier of power. In the meantime, those at the top are out of sight and out of mind.

    We are back to the 1960s and George Carlin telling us about the seven (7) deadly words we cannot say on television.

    You tell me Brandon Smith, if I have not once said the absolute truth here, in response to your PC piece of crap article.

    It doesn’t help that the national discourse has been taken over and Americans are being told what to believe by hookers, whores, prostitutes, Playboy Playmates, failed prom queens, porn stars, strippers taking over the national spotlight, even being interviewed by homosexuals (e.g., Anderson Cooper and Stormy Daniels and the up-coming 60-Minutes interview).

    I gather Stormy Daniels just released some new anal videos on Pornhub. I am not kidding. This is true. It’s a fact. EVEN THE MSM SAYS SO. Important policy wanker stuff. A must see.

  13. the blame-e says:

    Soap Opera? Whose soap opera we talking about? It all depends.

    If we are talking about the current drama being played out, where the national discourse has been taken over, and Americans are being told what to believe, by hookers, whores, prostitutes, Playboy Playmates, failed prom queens, porn stars, and strippers — all taking over the national spotlight. Then, yeah, that is rather strange.

    Stranger still is how hookers, whores, prostitutes, Playboy Playmates, failed prom queens, porn stars, strippers are being interviewed on national television by homosexuals. Seriously. Anderson Cooper and Stormy Daniels and the up-coming 60-Minutes interview. Heard about that one?

    Because, no. You won’t. Because we aren’t allowed to talk like that around here any more. Because we aren’t allowed to think like that any more. Not in this country. We aren’t allowed to use the words “hookers, whores, prostitutes, Playboy Playmates, failed prom queens, porn stars, strippers and homosexuals” in public discourse anymore. Even though that’s what they are. They can be running the show, they can still be found in Merriman’s English Dictionary, but they are now forbidden by the tyranny of Political Correctness.

    Hookers, whores, prostitutes, Playboy Playmates, failed prom queens, porn stars, strippers and homosexuals count as much (and now more now), than decent people. Regular folk are such a threat.

    The real scum of the earth are the rest of us. You know who you are. You’re the ones being hounded by hookers, whores, prostitutes, Playboy Playmates, failed prom queens, porn stars, strippers and homosexuals.

  14. America was once the “shining beacon on the hill”;now we’re in the red light district!

  15. watching and waiting says:

    True.

    It is like sending a decoy to distract when the real action is occurring somewhere else.

    I am not distracted and you probably are not either by all the comings and goings of this administration.

    Trump probably acted this way throughout his entire business life.

    Speaking about distractions.

    Story on StrangeSounds.org regarding the massive land split has had occurred and is occurring in The Kenya Rift Valley and some scientists have speculated and now some believe, a new ocean will eventually form. Good video on this situation. Is that where Obama is from?

  16. Jim in Va. says:

    Trump is playing chess. Wonder what Iran and North Korea are thinking? Bet those players aren’t sleeping well at night.

  17. Bert says:

    Trump is trying to raise inflation by giving tax cuts and tariffs because importing immigrants [increses the debt fast) is no longer tolerable. To keep the GDP rising he must outspend Obamas doubling!

    Trade war = higher prices = higher GDP$ = higher wall street = higher national debt spending = lower debt to GDP ratio … this will look nice in the short term, but months/seasons later world unemployment and debt defaults will result, the rise in interest rates due to the inflation will mean the interest charges on the national debt will exceed the total year 2005 budget! Thus another bust cycle and a repeat of 2008 is coming, along with a $10T annual US budget coming sometime around the next presidential election cycle, with a $28T-$32T national debt.

    To raise GDP, one must increase industrial output/exports or increase population or invoke anything that produces inflation.

    Prices will rise but the actual output of gidgets and actual hours worked will be falling, that is why GDP during inflationary times is so misleading.

    I expect Trump to walk back the tariffs perhaps in a year, but the inflation is already here, that is what he wanted – rise the GDP because we can’t keep importing 30 million ‘immigrant’ people every 10 years, as we did in the past, which had a rising effect in the GDP, wall street, and the national debt!!

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      I did the math on this problem back in 2008 when were coming up with recovery options. We realised at that time we had the following options ONLY:

      1) Default and hand China a laughing bag of worthless US dollars.
      2) Inflate nationally: introduce national inflation rates at 100% or more combined with currency devaluation.
      3) Globally inflate and pass the pain and the hard work on to the planet.

      We chose Option 3. Look around: we dumped credit and backdoor bail-outs into the Canadian banking system to get their housing bubble going insane and sparking their consumer economy. We did the same in Australia, China, Africa etc. Amusingly, we cooked this stuff up at an event in Switzerland with various worthies hyperventilating about a New World Order.

      But here we are 10 years later. Trump (Drumpf?) has few choices at this point. His best option is inflation. Epic inflation. At least inflation keeps the dollar in the game and means the US does not default. It is going to totally screw the poor and middle class but they will get their Amazon delivered government cheese and peanut butter in handy cardboard boxes stamped “Gift of the American Tax Payer”.

      In a credit economy that is financialised all you can do is keep your ability to borrow going. And if inflation does it, then do it.

  18. Tennessean says:

    I agree that John Bolton’s appointment is an extremely bad omen. Bradon’s comment about W. Wilson and how he was controlled is documented in G. Edward Griffin’s “The Creature From Jekyll Island.” The part about how the US was suckered into WWI is extremely important to understand.

  19. Stuart says:

    Brandon is conflating two groups of people. The private sector big-wigs are not “The Swamp”. The Swamp is the high level career bureaucrats of the alphabet agencies who invent regulations which have the force of law with no oversight.
    Those are the dangerous assholes who must go. Some guy from Gold-in-sacks may be part of the globalist problem but he isn’t “the swamp”. Anyway, the pool of individuals who can competently fill some of these Executive dept. jobs isn’t large. That’s why you nor I will be asked to join the Cabinet.
    Consider also that keeping the MSM focused on the circus allows a lot of good work to be done under the radar that they would screech about otherwise.

    • Bill says:

      Actually, the Swamp is not the chief power broker, they are the minions of the TPTB, who are mainly individuals who are not in gov’t. The gov’t is merely one of their tools they use to bring about a new order, an oligarchy you might say. These individuals hate our Civil Rights that empowers citizens because they want to see power concentrated only in the wealthy and connected. Anyone who is awake can see the gov’t is always looking for ways to inhibit our rights.

  20. cranerigger says:

    Stuart, I think you agree with Brandon more than a first glance at your comments might indicate. “Gold-in-sacks” (good one) has a revolving door with the federal government as indicated by Treasury Secretaries in recent decades. Some of us believe the SWAMP has tentacles all over the country.

  21. Bill says:

    Another big problem is that that fruitcake Bolton ( is going to be in the inner circle as the new security advisor. He the one that gone on Fox and believe we should just go ahead and start first-strike unprovoked hostilities against NK and Iran. That’s all we need, more g*ddam wars. We have already spent literally trillions of borrowed dollars fighting wars in the past 17 years and lost thousands of lives. He supported invasion of Iraq-now it’s an unlivable hellhole, he supported Obama and Clinton toppling Gaddafi in Libya-now the country is in utter anarchy, Libyans are now flooding into Europe and even slavery is returning there, and he says we need to have the goal of regime change in Iran. This time the Russians will be arming and supplying them. Let SK deal with NK, SK has twice the population of NK and its economy is 40 times larger. As for Iran, that’s Israel’s problem, but Israel is hell-bent drawing us into a wider conflict over there. Somebody please tell me a good reason why American boys need to go fight and die in those two theaters. Stop shedding American blood for sh*tholes. Let those other countries if they want wars to sacrifice their own sons. Don’t believe anything the gov’t, officials, politicians, MSM, and all their minions spew for TPTB. Besides we can’t afford another war anyway, American finances are wrecked.

He supported invasion of Iraq-now it’s an unlivable hellhole, he supported Obama and Clinton toppling Gaddafi in Libya-now the country is in utter anarchy, Libyans are now flooding into Europe and even slavery is returning there, and he says we need to have the goal of regime change in Iran. This time the Russians will be arming and supplying them. Let SK deal with NK, SK has twice the population of NK and its economy is 40 times larger. As for Iran, that’s Israel’s problem, but Israel is hell-bent drawing us into a wider conflict over there. Somebody please tell me a good reason why American boys need to go fight and die in those two theaters. Stop shedding American blood for sh*tholes. Let those other countries if they want wars to sacrifice their own sons. Don’t believe anything the gov’t, officials, politicians, MSM, and all their minions spew for TPTB. Besides we can’t afford another war anyway, American finances are wrecked.

  23. They have removed so many people and failed to fully restaff offices, that if we have a real emergency ghee will be no one that knows how to respond. Remember, when you drain the swamp, all that is left are the gators and snakes.

    Speaking of Soap Operas just watched the Stormy Daniel’s interview on 60 minutes. Trump is a pig. He had an affair with her a few months after Melania gave birth to Barron. He had sex with many women during all three of his marriages. He’s no better than Bill Clinton “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” or his wife who doesn’t care about girls being molested and women getting raped. Trump is no better than them. He can’t drain the swamp because he’s part of the swamp.

    The women in my church would much rather their husbands get oral sex from an intern at work than rawdog a pornstar and that’s something you can take to the bank.
