Draining the Swamp

January 19, 2017 The New Yorker

Ted Widmer, Senior Fellow, in The New Yorker, "There are moments in a hard-fought campaign when a catchy cluster of words can suddenly bubble up from the depths, a shiny new lily pad. 'Drain the swamp' worked on many levels—it was active, it was funny, and it sounded like something a man in the real-estate business would actually say."
