Oh, man, is this ever catnip for the working-class fans of Donald Trump. Pollster Sam Wang, PhD, the founder of the Princeton Election Consortium — an arrogant know-it-all Ivy-League Donald Trump hater — said before the election that if Donald Trump won over 240 electoral votes, he would eat a bug:

It is totally over. If Trump wins more than 240 electoral votes, I will eat a bug.

Today, the bill came due.

I think the best part is how smug the guy is, even in his own bug-eating segment. For example:

I think that the eating bugs thing is sensationalist, and it keeps us off of important policy issues, such as Supreme Court appointments. You know, Donald Trump had a great conversation with Obama, and he can make a grand gesture, like, say, “You know what? I’m representing all the people. I’m gonna show everyone who I am and what I’m made of, and I’m gonna name Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.”

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Just eat the bug, professor.

    The PHD said: “If it’s good enough for a snake”…..sounds like a guy who knows his history….

    Bet he’s glad he showed a modicum of self control and didn’t promise he’d eat something worse.

    Hey, if it’s good enough for a snake….

    Many a PHD would know.
