Over decades Presidents have gone to the Boy Scout Jamborees to promote strength, dedication and service. They’ve given uplifting and inspirational speeches to the attendees. This year our paranoid and odd President, Mr. Trump turned this event into a Hitler Youth Rally. Talking about politics and LOYALTY. He spoke about Healthcare and Fake News. He even threatened to fire Secretary Tom Price if Trumpcare doesn’t pass. He also followed some of these destructive comments with “believe me”.
Nothing he had to say was relevant to the 40,000 Boy Scouts and Leaders who came to be inspired. I really believe that Mr. Trump thinks he’s smart. I think that he believes the law of the land doesn’t apply to him or his family. I believe that he hasn’t a moral compass and that this speech was wholly inappropriate.
Apparently, I wasn’t the only American appalled. The Boy Scouts issued a statement that the President is their honorary President of the Boy Scouts and that they are not Political.
The only thing missing from his grandiose speech about how great and tremendous HE is was a story about him banging some beauty queen.
I hope the boys of America look at this moment and think…that’s not what we stand for…not even close.
It’s going to be are really long 4 years 😦
