Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

When Washington, DC, 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, best-selling 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 audiobook 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 audiobook is sure to build on that success. Entertaining and timely, The Swamp is the perfect audiobook for today's political climate.

Eric NAILS it with this one!

Clear, concise and right to the point. Eric's take on the swamp that is Washington (and how to drain it), DC is right on the money.

Great job, Eric!

Mind boggling, treacherous waters

After so much evidence of the murkiness of our current system, it's hard to easily embrace the optimism expressed at the end. I buy into the whole principle but at the same time I realize probably 50 to 60% of the people either do not believe or do not care. Do we give up then? … No! We can gain enthusiasm from the election of Trump and from patriots like Eric Bolling for writing books like this.

The Truth About American Politics

Bolling exposes the truth about the corruption in American politics starting long before Trump labeled it the Swamp from the earliest beginnings through the decades to Kennedy's Chappaquiddick scandal, Clinton and Lewinsky to Anthony Weiner's sexting, Clinton Foundation corruption, up to DNC fix and Hillary's emails. It has been a long long history of dubious, dark secrets, corruption, lies, self serving scandals by those we had trusted to lead us.

More than was expected

I really liked that he read his own book.
This was a very informative trip through time and what the politicos have been up to for all these years. I like his message to the Trump very well also.

Loved it!

I voted for Trump so he would do just that. Drain the Swamp. I knew they would resist with everything they have. I feel Trump is up to it. Can't be too naive though. This book shows how long all this has been going on.

Would be great if we could do this

Eric has some very good ideas I just hope that some of what he says can and will happen. I really like it when the author reads his own words especially for nonfiction

Very OK

My fear upon buying this audio book was that Bolling, a libertarian wannabe and "use force to get OUR way" conservative would turn into a Trump blowing session. And it did, a little. I should probably commend him on keeping it to a minimum, because I expected much worse. Interesting info put out, some of it I knew, some I didn't. The examples of corruption from the 1800's were well researched and welcome additions.
Overall, I give it an OK. Fox News people will eat this stuff up with a spoon, though.
