Master of bait-and-switch

“Drain the swamp!” And true to his word (this time) President-elect Trump is draining the swamp, by bringing inhabitants of said swamp into his administration. So he is, to some degree, actually following through on his promise. (Or is he changing locations of the swamp?) But, hey, as in other matters, he did not define how he would do it.

So the “trust me” seems to have worked on many as they believed the master of bait-and-switch. While I expected this very behavior by Trump, it is still very disconcerting and leaves me wondering what the next four years will bring. Or perhaps I am experiencing anticipatory grief?
