    “Drain the swamp” is a horrible metaphor.
    Natural swamps are teeming with life. They’re often situated around coastline and act as a natural barrier against flooding from hurricanes. Draining swamps make for ecological disasters that end up making the effects of natural disasters worse; and typically it’s only done for the benefit of corporations.
    On second thought, a drained swamp is a decent metaphor of Trump’s presidency.

    Seems the people that say the phrase: "Drain the swamp", is unsure as to the significance of the metaphor. I imagine the phrase is used in connection to politics as a comparison to a system that is stagnate, rotting, and filled with unwholesome creatures that breed contagions, are parasitic, or predatory in quality.

    The problem here is that when Trump says "the swamp", he and hos followers simply mean "the people we don't like." It has nothing to do with the way the term "the swamp" has been used by everyone else.
    It's similar to when he says "fake news", he and his sycophants take that to mean "all news that i don't like". It has nothing to do with the way that the term "fake news" has been used for years by everyone else
