LOL: Democrats Steal New Campaign Message From Trump, Want to “Drain The Swamp”

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

Democrats have been scrambling to find a new message for the 2018 midterms. They have finally settled on stealing Trump’s line about draining the swamp.

Did they forget that President Trump campaigned on Draining the DC Swamp?

Apparently, no one told Chuck Schumer that he is the swamp.

The Hill reports:

Dems expand 2018 message to ‘draining the swamp’

Democrats are turning their campaign message to the many scandals swirling around the Trump administration, betting that vows to “drain the swamp” will attract voters to their side in November.

The strategy marks an expansion of the Democrats’ midterm agenda, “A Better Deal,” which up until now has focused almost exclusively on kitchen-table economic issues in lieu of the controversies surrounding President Trump and a growing list of people in his orbit.

In extending their message to include an anti-corruption component, the Democrats are painting the Trump administration — and its Republican supporters on Capitol Hill — as an unscrupulous group that’s using power to pad its own pockets while peddling policies to the highest corporate bidder. The Democrats are promising voters they’d be an alternative: The party that would clean the place up.

“President Trump has embraced the most egregious establishment Republican norms and appointed the most conflict-of-interest-ridden Cabinet in my lifetime,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Monday at a press briefing on the steps of the Capitol.

This is the best Democrats could do? How pathetic!
