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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Poorly written and delivered"

    Entire book seems like it is continuous realm of bullet points and very informative but tiresome.

    "Misleading title.."

    This is so partisan that it was hard to enjoy. It lays out every corrupt thing a democrat has done in the history of the republic but ignores almost all of the wrongdoing on the other side. I was hoping for a more balanced look at what he calls "the swamp," but all we got was rhetoric. Three quarters of this book is corruption stories, the last quarter is editorializing about the success of Trump's presidency before he actually did anything. Books like this continue to divide us.

    Production wise, the audio was not well edited. It seemed to be paced badly, and the author was obviously recording this but by bit because the sound quality varies. The audio editors should be ashamed of themselves.

    Not worth it!

    "Amazing"

    This book has been seriously researched and contains much information I had no idea would be available. I really enjoyed listening and learning. I thank Eric for his work. I also like that Eric narrated. I truly miss you on the 5 Eric.

    "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.

    "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
