    The only president I can remember who actively fought corruption was Jimmy Carter.  He was also the most honest president I can remember, in fact the only one who valued honesty at all, even if it wasn't politically advantageous.  But he was the rare exception.  EVERY other president wanted only to fight corruption in the other party.

    Yes, you had JFK.

    Remember, he was going to smash the CIA into a thousand pieces and do away with the fed.

    However, they struck first!

    He had his brother on his side and made him Attorney General but it was not enough ranged against the assembled might of the Deep State.

    President Trump knew JFK Jr and did not make the same mistake.

    Then, of course, there was Reagan who wanted to make friends with Russia. Imagine the lost arms sale that would cause. The Deep State tried to take him out as well to keep the Military Industrial Complex happy.

    The one we have now has only made the swamp the scariest part of the White House ever.

    You can’t drain a swamp by flooding it with bullshit.

    trump has appointed 285 former lobbyists to government positions.  President Obama appointed 65.  So who's really draining the swamp?  And you can "thumbs down" me all you like, it doesn't make it any less true.

    Unlike Trump, most Presidents have had the ability to deal with the Swamp.

    If fat Donnie really wanted to drain the swamp, he would have Melania's uterus scraped.

    We still don't have one. The current occupant of the White House has filled the swamp with new and bigger monsters.
