Wang tweeted on October 18: “It is totally over. If Trump wins more than 240 electoral votes, I will eat a bug.“
Professor Wang at Princeton University had a breakfast of crickets in honey live on CNN Saturday after host Michael Smerconish asked, “Really, what about the bug?“
A polling expert kept his promise by eating a bug if Trump exceeded 240 electoral votes.
President-elect Donald Trump won the election with 290 electoral votes.
“There are things that can happen that could bring the country together, but I don’t think the bug thing is one of them, I just wanted to point it out,” Wang said, after detailing how there are more important issues to discuss, such as who Trump will nominate to the Supreme Court.
Smerconish, however, said it was time to “put it to bed,” in regards to the bug promise.
“After all, I was wrong. A lot of people were wrong, but no one made the promise I did,” Wang said, before eating a single cricket from a bowl of gourmet crickets mixed with honey, CNN reported.
