VIDEO: WATCH How Poll Expert Eats Bug after Being Wrong about Trump

Sun Nov 13, 2016 12:43:14

A polling expert who had previously promised to "eat a bug" if Trump exceeded 240 electoral votes made good on his promise with a breakfast of crickets in honey.

Wang, a professor at Princeton University, ate a bug live on CNN Saturday after host Michael Smerconish asked, "Really, what about the bug?"

On Oct. 18, Wang tweeted: "It is totally over. If Trump wins more than 240 electoral votes, I will eat a bug."

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.
