Democrats and the media are confused about the meaning of Donald Trump's pledge to "drain the swamp" in Washington, D.C. The president-elect's critics say his appointment of wealthy Republicans to cabinet positions is hypocritical and reveals him to be a phony populist. "Hypocrisy at its worst," cry Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. "Trump's Economic Cabinet Picks Signal Embrace of Wall St. Elite," reads the headline on the New York Times. "Stick a sterling silver fork in Trump's 'populism,'" reads the title of a Washington Post column.
