Of all the topics to occupy the mind of the most powerful person in the United States, one would not expect badgers to make a frequent appearance.

But the rotund, hairy omnivores were apparently an alarmingly regular topic of conversation in the White House during the early months of Donald Trumpís presidency, according to Daily Beast reporters Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng.

The authors detail Trumpís preoccupation in their new book, Sinking in the Swamp: How Trumpís Minions and Misfits Poisoned Washington.

Along with detailing ďthe murky underworld of President Trumpís Washington, dishing the hilarious and frightening dirt on the charlatans, conspiracy theorists, ideologues, and run-of-the-mill con artists who have infected the highest echelons of American political powerĒ, they also discuss Trumpís fascination with badgers.
