Swamp Monsters Crash Hearing as Senators Consider Oil Lobbyist Bernhardt For Interior Dept.

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

"Swamp monsters" crashed a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on Thursday about David Bernhardt, the former fossil fuel lobbyist President Donald Trump nominated to lead the U.S. Department of the Interior.

At least two hearing attendees donned green monster masks. A newly created Twitter account documented their presence:

Swamp Monster looks like the one in a really old black and white movie----- The Creature from The Black Lagoon…which is what Florida all probably look like with the rising ocean. AND----- what happened to Mr. Pruitt? Did he pay back his waste of money excursions? Where is his magic Superman Phone Booth, where he can take his secret calls? Will this one Interior guy, if he gets in----- have to pay back the waste he will create? If this scary one gets in----------who will protect the land, the water and the creatures?
