Here’s everything he needs to know about badgers. With luck it will bemuse him into catatonia.

Can we put him in a room with a few badgers so he find out for himself?

POTUS should pose with one like he did with that eagle. He’ll learn all about the badger personality.

Something that I often forget, overshadowed by his narcissism and other personality disorders, lack of knowledge and ongoing mental decline is that Trump is also rather weird. He’s completely incurious about almost everything - but then he has these weird fixations. Or rather interests that stand out because he’s usually not interested in anything, which he keeps coming back to most likely because he simply forgot what people told him about it the last time he asked…

The first relatable thing I’ve heard about the man.

It is rumoured that as his age got into double digits he may have progressed as far as being a 12-year-old in an adult body for perhaps a decade or three, but that he has since clearly regressed back to being a 7-year-old in an adult body, as you say. Soon he’ll be shitting his pants, in need of diapers, and drooling while someone feeds him mush from a plastic spoon.

Well, here’s hoping, anyway.

And here the liberal establishment and the deep state accuse Trump of being congenitally incurious and wholly unwilling to seek outside information from (relative) experts…

Now if only that applied to something other than a particular obscure mammal facts niche.

In Trump’s defense… Badgers are pretty cool.

Somebody tweet this article at him and maybe it’ll shut him up for a bit.

Badgers? We don’t require any malodorous badgers.

No question, I just rolled up a Punk Bard Badger with anger issues for a D&D game next week. (Very homebrew furry 5e D&D)

Still, I long learned about what the fuck a badger was about 45 years ago and somebody in their 70s probably should have gotten at least some idea of badgers by that point.
