Inviting the president to speak at the Boy Scouts Jamboree is a tradition, so seeing Trump speak at the event this year wasn't a surprise in and of itself. No, the real surprise occurred when he made outrageous statements about bullying, his "big win," got the Scouts to boo President Obama and Hilary Clinton, and a bunch of other despicable things--and people were surprised that it all happened.
Really? We are this far into this presidency and any terrible behavior that Trump incites and displays is still surprising to you?
I'll agree with all of the parents demanding that leaders be held accountable for the booing and behavior of their charges. One former Boy Scout even returned his top award out of disgust ove the event.
But don't you think we need to hold the president up to a much higher standard? Don't you think the parents could hold THEMSELVES up a bit by, you know, campaigning for someone who wouldn't do this at all? Maybe their rallying cry should be for a time-traveling machine instead of the heads of BSA leaders.
My actual question is, if only women are allowed at the Boy Scouts Jamboree, who will they invite when the president is a woman?
