Seth Meyers Mocks Trump’s ‘Very Dumb Obsession’ With Badgers squib
Seth Meyers spent an inordinate amount of time Thursday night fixating on President Donald Trump’s “very dumb obsession,” as he put it, with badgers.
“As we all know, Donald Trump is not a well-read man, but it’s still fascinating to find out the things that he’s curious about,” the Late Night host said. “And this week, we learned one of the strangest, dumbest things yet.”
Meyers was referring to an anecdote from Sinking in the Swamp: How Trump’s Minions and Misfits Poisoned Washington, a new book about Trumpworld by The Daily Beast’s Washington, D.C., reporters Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng. As they report, Trump would repeatedly ask his first chief of staff Reince Priebus about badgers, presumably because he came from Wisconsin, the Badger State.
