Leader Of The Tea Party Just Blasted Con Man Trump For Lying About Draining The Swamp

During his campaign, Donald Trump famously vowed to “drain the swamp” of established political interests in Washington, aligning himself with one of the primary messages of the Tea Party caucus and their supporters.

Now that their man is in the White House, one of the founders of the ultra-conservative movement feels betrayed. Mark Meckler, who co-founded the Tea Party Patriots, said today that he is “disgusted” by Trump’s attacks on the House Freedom Caucus in the aftermath of the failed Republican health care bill.

In an interview with The Hill today, Meckler said:

“The man who promised to ‘Drain the Swamp’ now appears to be the ‘Creature from the Black Lagoon.’ He is now on the side of the swamp monsters.”

Meckler was reacting to a tweet that Trump sent out earlier in the day threatening to target members of the House Freedom Caucus in the 2018 mid-term elections if they don’t support the President’s agenda.

Trump has blamed the Freedom Caucus for the failure of the Republican health care plan designed to repeal and replace Obamacare. Despite the fact that the majority of Americans polled opposed the bill because it provided inferior care at a higher cost, the congressional members of the Freedom Caucus refused to join the President and mainstream Republicans in backing the legislation because the bill didn’t go far enough in stripping away health benefits from the American people.

Given the number of Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street denizens that the President has brought into the administration, it’s hard to believe that it took this long for anyone to realise that Trump’s vow to “drain the swamp” was just another one of his long string of lies and broken promises.
