This is what draining the Swamp will look like. Fresh faces, expecting to serve the country and the people replacing faces bloated with the greed of corporate lobbies.

I have never liked Chuck Todd's interview style. He clarifies nothing.

Give me Margaret Brennan any day over Chuck.

Yes. . .

Just wish to make two clarifications towards the imagery of "draining the swamp". First, swamps are natural ecosystems. They may seem unpleasant, but swamps can and do many good things that are beneficial. Second. I prefer the image of creating a cesspool. Cesspools are man-made, and they can be really nasty, unpleasant and unhealthy. That is what Trump has done, create a cesspool, as evidenced by individuals that he picked to be on his Administration, and by the policies that he and his administration support and enacted.

I KNOW that I've shared this here before, but it merits repeating. Trump and his administration is creating a freakin' cesspool out of our nation, both literally and figuratively. As far as "draining the swamp" is concerned, he's more than likely doing that too, quite literally, at the detriment of the swamps' ecosystems and the benefit they provide the surrounding areas. But as far as making the Federal Government more responsive to the needs to the flesh and blood citizens of the United States is concerned??? Trump and his Administration are failing us, miserably and to our detriment. (Never mind the fact that Trump is a pathological liar, and can not be trusted.)

I don't like Chuck's interview style either, which is why I don't watch his show. I prefer Rachel Maddow. I do NOT like how she presents the news; I simply don't like her on-camera style. BUT, the information she presents is well-researched as a professional journalist should provide their viewers (and readers). Rachel Maddow is well-educated, well-informed, and works to gather the facts towards the news she presents. Yes, she also shares her opinions. But her opinions are backed up by her research. And, of course, I do agree with her opinions. I just don't like the way she presents herself, so hesitantly and over-dramatically sometimes.

I don't get to watch Chuck Todd but I liked him when I had cable and would watch morning Joe and caught his show a few times. He's passionate and quite knowledgeable about politics and usually doesn't make things up or lie. He does a lot of speculation and plays out scenarios that are in his head and speaks them out loud and they don't always play out the way he predicts, but clearly he loves talking politics and is quite knowledgeable. Still it takes one mistake to question his integrity I suppose. Did he make a rebuttal to his statement?

He may have made a rebuttal. I listened to "Meet the Press" Sunday and didn't hear him mention it..

We don't have cable either.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections on Thursday ordered a new election in the 9th Congressional District, ending a dramatic, months-long investigation into allegations of widespread ballot tampering.


“It appears to me the irregularities and improprieties occurred to such an extent that they tainted the results of the entire election and cast doubt on its fairness,” said the board chairman, Bob Cordle, shortly before the five-member panel voted unanimously to throw out the November results between Republican Mark Harris and Democrat Dan McCready. “I believe the people of North Carolina deserve a fair election and deserve to have their votes counted properly.”
