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.

    "My Wife and I loved this book"

    I listened to this book while traveling to Nebraska from New Jersey and my wife and I loved it. Everyone should either read or listen to this book. Great History and everyone Dem and Rep. know Washington needs to change. Fact. Much read or listen. Thanks Eric and Amazon for bringing this to us. Eric keep bringing it.

    "Poorly written and delivered"

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

    "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.

    "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!

    "Great information...start DRAINING!"

    Overall this was a good read. The first few chapters which were about historical players and misdeeds was a little hard to follow, maybe for me partly because the situations weren't in chronological order, but it did show how the swamp has been filling to overflowing for decades. Glad I read it.

    "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.

    "it's ok"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He reads so fast that he slurs his words. Terrible narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Eric get a professional narrator.

    I am a husband/dad/granddad who loves books. My reviews are my subjective opinions. My hope is they will help others make buying decisions.

    "Mr. President, drain the swamp"

    The layout and building Washington DC as our nations capital was done in a swampy area. This book is about the metaphorical swamp that is our nations capitol today with the self enrichment of elected politicians and their acts of illegality as well as an unaccountable and unelected administrative state that passes many more laws in the form of regulations than does the Congress. Most of The Swamp is a summary of illegalities and bad behavior during the entire history of our nation; it is about such behavior in all three branches of our government. It is about how we went from the citizen politician to the professional and crooked politician who get just 20% of his income from his salary and the rest from cashing in on his position and its power. The author basically defines the swamp before moving on to solutions

    Only the last chapter of The Swamp is devoted to solutions. The major solution is to let President trump be himself and allow him to drain the swamp so the people regain their freedoms and they can make the economy grow at a reasonable pace again. Let Trump lead in making America great again.

    Eric Bolling's conclusion chapter will not get agreement from a large proportion of US citizens, but it makes sense to me. And I was a Never Trumper during the primary and general elections until on election day I decided he was the best of awful options.
