Tea Party deadbeat dad and professional crybaby Joe Walsh, who once threatened armed rebellion if Trump lost, is a bit upset with his hero’s decision to hire Goldman Sachs’ Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary and his consideration of Goldman Sachs Group President and Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn for energy secretary.
“Mr Trump, this is bullshit. Can you hire someone who doesn’t work for Goldman Sachs? What about that swamp? Huh?”

So far he's not draining the swamp. It's a cabinet full of wealthy insiders.
Come on Donald. It wasn't a corny phrase. It got you elected

Apparently, it is not only the media that, as Corey Lewandowski accused, took Trump too literally. “The American people didn’t,” Lewandowski insisted. “They understood it.” Well…excluding Walsh.
More remarkably, however, this is an actual incidence of Joe Walsh having an actual, verifiable reason to complain about something. And more remarkable still, he’s actually right.
Well…except for the penis thing.

His interests include, besides history and philosophy, human rights issues, freedom of choice, religion, and the precarious dichotomy of freedom of speech and intolerance. He brings a slightly different perspective to his writing, being that he is neither a follower of an Abrahamic faith nor an atheist but a polytheist, a modern-day Heathen who follows the customs and traditions of his Norse ancestors. He maintains his own blog, A Heathen’s Day, which deals with Heathen and Pagan matters, and Mos Maiorum Foundation www.mosmaiorum.org, dedicated to ethnic religion.
