{{/voted}} In news that we didn't expect to be reporting on today, Donald Trump is apparently obsessed with badgers and if they are 'mean to people?' These revelations have emerged from a new book by Daily Beast journalist Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suesbsaeng who has penned Sinking in the Swamp: How Trump's Minions and Misfits Poisoned Washington . A two-page passage from the book explains how, in the first few months of his presidency, Trump used to question his former chief of staff Reince Priebus about all sorts of stuff but especially badgers. The pair write in the book: 'Are they mean to people?’ Trump at least twice asked Priebus in the opening months of his presidency. 'Or are they friendly creatures?’ The president would also ask if Priebus had any photos of badgers he could show him, and if Priebus could carefully explain to him how badgers ‘work’ exactly. Trump would reportedly ask these pointless questions when Priebus was trying to explain important pieces of policy on foreign affairs and healthcare initiatives. Trump would even go as far as to ask to see pictures of badgers and wanted to know if they had 'personalities,' what kind of food they liked and how aggressive they were. Markay and Suebsaeng add: An obviously enthralled president would stare at Priebus as the aide struggled for sufficiently placating answers, all the while trying to gently veer the conversation back to whether we were going to do a troop surge in Afghanistan or strip millions of Americans of healthcare coverage. Trump's questioning of Priebus about the black and white critters is probably down to the fact that Wisconsin, Priebus's home state, is known as the badger state but that being said the president never specified which species of badger he was interested in. This bizarre wildlife obsession of the president became a feature on Late Night with Seth Meyers, with the host saying: Oh my god, Trump is obsessed with badgers. I have so many questions about this. First of all, Trump wants to know how badgers ‘work?’ What does he mean by work? Does he mean, do they have hearts that pump blood to the rest of their bodies or does he mean, do badgers have jobs?

Let's put him in a closet with a honey badger and let him figure it out for himself. Someone send him a skunk and persuade him it’s a rare type of badger. In a related story, British tabloid rag “The Independent” is apparently obsessed with President Trump and keeps asking if he is 'mean to people' My first thought went to Raul’s Wild Kingdom from the Weird Al classic UHF

Thinks they are kindred spirits!!! when they are in a hole they keep digging too Ah. So a Daily Beast far-left activist (pretend journalist) wrote an obvious propaganda book called “Sinking in the Swamp: How Trump's Minions and Misfits Poisoned Washington” And this is where you got your “story”? Leftist journalists farting into their own echo chamber.

Not as obsessed as you are with Trump. Why is he badgering badgers? Not as mean as people are to them Mr Trump.

I like the idea of Trump installing a secret trapdoor in the Oval Office that, at the push of a button, dumps those who have failed or angered him into a pit full of hungry badgers. Get Harry Hill on the case 😑 Please let him have one as a pet President Twump proves he’s rather spekal himself...again. DumpTrump

I wouldn't say that he's obsessed. But Badgers are certainly fascinating. Top notch Trump derangement syndrome journalism caroon1 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Maybe this is why he asked!🤷‍♀️

Hope Hicks returns to a more powerful Donald Trump'Coming out of impeachment, he needs people around him whom he trusts,' presidential historian says of Trump Bad news for FLOTUS MELANIATRUMP It’s because his dementia is accelerating. She’s the only one who can get through to him.

He's more likely to be interested in American badgers, than the European one in your illustration... Send him one or two. Have some fun. He asked a friendly question & the guy ignored it so he persisted until he acknowledged the question. I do the same with rude people who blank me, guys a weasel who's twisted the situation to suit his purposes. If someone 'keeps asking', answer ffs you *rsehole.

Wow. How did this even got into the news?! How pathetic news reporting has become at Just assholes... This ni🅱️🅱️a is clearly pandering to make a Badger first pet so he wins Wisconsin. 😂 Much like him, Honeybadger DGAF.
