The New York Times best-selling author of Wake Up America and cohost of Fox News' The Five chronicles various stories of political scandal in Washington, DC, and ends by offering recommendations on how President Trump can rid America's capital of political corruption.

McMillan Palgrave

When Washington D.C. was first built, it was on top of a swamp that had to be drained. Donald Trump says it's time to drain it again.

In The Swamp, bestselling author and Fox News Channel host Eric Bolling presents an infuriating, amusing, revealing, and outrageous history of American politics, past and present, Republican and Democrat. From national political scandals to tempests in a teapot that blew up; bribery, blackmail, bullying, and backroom deals that contradicted public policies; cronyism that cost taxpayers hundreds upon hundreds of millions of dollars; and personal conduct that can only be described as regrettable, The Swamp is a journey downriver through the bayous and marshes of Capitol Hill and Foggy Bottom.

The presidential election of 2016 was ugly, but it exposed a political, media, industry, and elite establishment that desperately wanted to elect a politician who received millions of dollars from terror-funding states over a businessman willing to tell the corrupt or incompetent, “You’re fired.”

The book concludes with a series of recommendations for President Trump: practical, hard-headed, and concise ways to drain the swamp and force Washington to be more transparent, more accountable, and more effective in how it serves those who have elected its politicians and pay the bills for their decisions.

Last year President Trump declared Wake Up America to be a "huge" book; Eric Bolling's second book is sure to build on that success. Entertaining and timely, The Swamp is the perfect book for today's political climate.

A lot of this book is historical background. A much better recent
book is "Drain the Swamp" by Congressman Ken Buck. I skipped
most of the historical stuff and went to chapter 13. When Eric
Bolling stated that President Thomas Jefferson was the father
of several of slave Sally Hemings kids, I just about stopped
reading any further. From all I've read and heard, A Jefferson
was probably Sally Hemings lover, but it was never proven
that it was Thomas Jefferson. If you want to really learn about
what the swamp is like and how to drain it, I would recommend
Ken Bucks book and "The Liberty Amendments" by Mark Levin.

Suggest one reads the book, Survival of the Richest, by Donald Jeffries, instead.
Also, to even begin to grasp Real News, and Reality, try reading David Dayen's incredible book, Chain of Title, which explains that those bankers [whom President Obama repeatedly claimed broke no laws] in actuality did everything illegally.
Along with that I would strongly recommend, The Case for the Corporate Death Penalty, by Mary Kreiner Ramirez, which bolsters Mr. Dayen's book in a most remarkable manner!
[Historical Note: Draining the swamp was first used in American politics by the old governor of Florida, Napoleon Broward, except I suspect he was referring to a real swamp back then.]
