Hedge Fund Manager on Trump’s Wall Street-Filled Swamp: ‘I can take glee in that — Donald Trump Conned Voters’

People who truly believed a billionaire reality TV star was going to get into the White House and “drain the swamp” are getting a pretty clear picture now of just how full that swamp is going to be under a Donald J. Trump presidency.

When he isn’t considering neocons and appointing die hard establishment Republican top brass, he’s busy filling up the ranks with Wall Street.

From a 17-year Goldman Sachs banker who once worked for George Soros as Secretary of Treasury, to a billionaire Senior Managing Director at Rothschild, Inc. for Secretary of Commerce, it’s becoming blatantly obvious the U.S. government will be business as usual only better for megabanks with the Trump Administration running things.

And don’t forget, he also promised to lower taxes for the wealthy in a “trickle down economics” scheme that has proven time again not to work (but it will line the pockets of rich people like… well… Donald Trump and his banker friends).

Now, adding insult to injury, elite bankers are openly laughing at voters who believed Trump when he promised to “drain the swamp”.

Check out this excerpt form an interview with Hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson that appeared in Bloomberg yesterday:

Hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson was feeling happy Wednesday morning.

After Donald Trump ridiculed Wall Street on the campaign trail, the President-elect tapped former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. executive Steven Mnuchin to be his Treasury secretary and billionaire investor Wilbur Ross to lead the Commerce Department. Trump even met with Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn inside Trump Tower.

It would suit Tilson just fine if voters who backed Trump because he promised to rein in Wall Street are furious now that he’s surrounding himself with bankers and billionaires.

“I can take glee in that — I think Donald Trump conned them,” said Tilson, who runs Kase Capital Management. “I worried that he was going to do crazy things that would blow the system up. So the fact that he’s appointing people from within the system is a good thing.”

Wasn’t Trump bashing Hillary just a few months ago on the campaign trail for her cozy ties to Wall Street? How exactly is he any different in that regard now?

The worst is people who are so mired in their own cognitive dissonance that now, when it is coming into clear view just how swampy the swamp will remain under Trump, they’ve changed tactics to arguing that Trump just has to appoint these lecherous creatures of Wall Street into his administration because those are the only people who know how to run things.

Um… WHAT?!

America doesn’t need more of the same clowns who created this corruption circus in the first place.

These people Trump is appointing aren’t going to change anything for the better unless that means better for themselves. They know how to run the corrupt money machine per the status quo and keep things business as usual. But wasn’t Trump going to “Make America Great Again”? It’s becoming more and more evident by the day that phrase must mean an entirely different thing to him and his crony Wall Street friends than it means to the majority of people who voted for him.

    ‘Swamp Drowns Trump’ rather than ‘Trump Drains Swamp’?

    SAME OLD GLEE CLUB FARCE. umm, no…….

  • doucyet

    One cannot assign a sewage treatment manager to run the subway system. You have to look at “qualified” individuals familiar with the machine that you think you can work with to move forward with your plans. So don’t be to quick to throw Trump under the bus, let’s see if actually makes America great again. He can’t do any worse than the buffoon that’s leaving………………

    • OldeSoul

      Continue fooling yourself while you still can. Trump can and will make the current buffoon look like a warm up act. He was the globalist’s choice all along for a very good reason, and the voting buffoons bought it… again.

      • doucyet

        There is no doubt that a global cabal runs the machine and that the US is at it’s forefront, but there are still men/women that are willing to try to change that. Some have died for it. All we can do is wait and see or pick a weapon yourself and go for it. Clinton was not the choice here, she is clearly a globalist. It won’t take long to see if we’ve been bamboozled……….again……………

  • Arrow

    The voters have given Trump the chance… and the voters can tell him, “You’re fired.”

    • Berni Paik-Apau

      If it were only that simple. This is not a tv reality show where everything can be staged or where ratings can make or destroy a show. Government will be bigger than before but not to the benefit of the American people. A President-elect who prefers staying in his golden palace rather than the WH isn’t going to be thinking about how to help this nation. He will be ruling from Trump Tower where only the elite will be allowed to enter. He will never be transparent. Give him a chance? What do we have to lose? Everything.

      • Arrow

        It is that simple. When one allows the subject matter to be expanded it is a distraction. It’s clear that the voters chose a riddle wrapped in a paradox over an experienced criminal whose absence of empathy killed her chance of extorting any remaining wealth from the slaves. That remaining wealth will be lost… it’s only a question of how fast and the method used.

    War. No point in calling mother Theresa for help. To win you need professionals. Knowing exactly weak spots. Learned in a life time spent in a war environment. Good people are the last or never invited.

    • OldeSoul

      Oh good, more war! This is just what we need. You should apply for a post with the Department of Warmongering, you sound very professional.

      • Bas

        What WE need. For sure not good people. Thy live a life with one feet in their heaven. Think climate warriors. flying in private planes to meetings of think alike. To safeguard a lifestyle way beyond the common men.

  • Kate

    Trump is a real estate mogul, SELECTED to foreclose on the real estate in our country that belongs to you and I. You will witness the privatization of our roads, institutions, etc., into the hands of his billionaire buddies.

      Unfortunately, that’s already long been the case. It happened in 1871. All of the US so-called “public land” was clandestinely hypothecated to the Crown Corporation, i.e., the Queen and the Rothschild bank.

    Give him time to head-fake those who are still trying to prevent him from being sworn in (two more important hurdles to jump) and probably have assassination on their list. Once he takes the oath (pray for his safety… seriously!), he will need a few months to build a cocoon of trusted military leaders who can insure his safety. THEN start screaming if he doesn’t make moves to go after the globalists. He can’t do a any of us any good if he’s dead, and I think he is keenly aware of this, don’t you?

  • Silence DoGood

    Thanks.
