Swamp Thing Attends Hearing on Capitol Hill

A swamp creature invaded Capitol Hill Thursday looking like the monster from the classic horror film “The Creature from the Black Lagoon.” 

The swamp thing sat in perfect view during the senate confirmation hearing for Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.

The “creature” had reacted to comments Bernhardt made during his confirmation, but after an hour of dramatics, Capitol Police officers removed her.

The woman behind the mask was identified as Greenpeace activist Irene Kim, and she spoke to Inside Edition about her antics

"We wanted to bring some absurdity to this event that was happening,” she said. 

She had said that Trump promised to “drain the swamp,” but she believes he is building up the swamp instead.
