President Donald Trump frequently interrupted briefings to satisfy his preoccupation with badgers when Wisconsin native Reince Priebus was his White House chief of staff.

According to the new book “Sinking In The Swamp,” the president peppered Priebus with questions about Wisconsin’s state animal during briefings about foreign and domestic policy,.

“‘Are they mean to people?’ Trump at least twice asked Priebus in the opening months of his presidency,” the authors wrote. “‘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 also wanted to know if the badger had a ‘personality’ or if it was boring,” the authors wrote. “What kind of damage could a badger to do a person with its flashy, sharp claws?”

“An obviously enthralled president would stare at Priebus as the aide struggled for sufficiently placating answers,” they added, “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.”

No substance here. Petty and frequently questionable anecdotes.

I bought this book in stores because I thought it would be funny and informative. It is neither. The authors try too hard and its downright cringey. Wait a couple weeks for the price to come down or just skip it all together.

Trump wanting the Gorilla Channel was a better story.
The policies that are indorsed by this party, that they backer of which are much of the 1 percent, causes a social structure much like the one back before the Revolution.

And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."
