I leave for a couple of hours to take care of my kids, jump back on Twitter, and what do I see? A raving Donald Trump turning a Boy Scout Jamboree into a political rally. It’s not just any political rally, but one in which the President of the United States threatens to fire the Health and Human Services Secretary if he doesn’t kill Obamcare; in which he basically suggests to kids that if you buy a yacht you’ll get a lot of tail; and one in which he has the entire crowd of young men chant his name while booing President Obama and Hillary Clinton.
My child will never ever fucking join the Boy Scouts of America. Ever.
Here’s a taste of what I just witnessed through the eyes of Twitter:
The fact that the Boy Scouts allowed that speech to go on is the reason why I will NEVER let my son join. That was straight up Hitler stuff.— 🗽 Erin 🗽 (@izzyabbysmom) July 25, 2017
Well I wanted my son to join the Boy Scouts until I'm watching Trump address the Boy Scout convention and it looks like a Hitler Youth rally— Danny roberts (@hondo750) July 25, 2017
Today Trump made a speech to the Boy Scouts that was as if he was trying to turn it into his own version of the Hitler Youth.— Trump's not my Pres (@Nysteveo2AOLcom) July 24, 2017
Trump tells the Boy Scouts he's going to kill Obamacare; Boy Scouts respond with chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" pic.twitter.com/DQpFXJpGGF— Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) July 24, 2017
He now has them booing Obama. Rick Perry and Tom Price laughing behind Trump.— Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) July 24, 2017
Encourage the Boy Scouts to boo America's first black POTUS. ⬇️ https://t.co/dWcqq9qKrp— Peter Daou (@peterdaou) July 24, 2017
Speaking to Boy Scouts, Pres. Trump quips Sec. Price "better get the votes" for health care bill, or he'll fire him. https://t.co/di8wjEHH3J— NBC Nightly News (@NBCNightlyNews) July 24, 2017
There is no bottom. Trump sees a bunch of Boy Scouts and sees nothing but another crowd to aggrandize himself to. Shameful. https://t.co/SOqzui9XOV— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) July 24, 2017
The Boy Scouts of America let a sexual predator and 5 deferment draft dodger address their scouts & bad mouth a former POTUS & FLOTUS.— Matt Murphy (@MattMurph24) July 24, 2017
Trump now has the Boy Scouts booing Hillary Clinton. "She didn't work hard" in Wisconsin and Michigan.— Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) July 24, 2017
Educating boys to boo and malign accomplished women. Classy. Wonder what their mothers think?— Abracadabra (@abracadabraNY) July 24, 2017
YOU DON'T TALK TO CHILDREN LIKE THIS. YOU DON'T TALK TO CHILDREN LIKE THIS. https://t.co/KG4quwgTJw— Kelly Wickham Hurst (@mochamomma) July 24, 2017
I don't think I'll forget that Boy Scouts speech. The President of the United States is indoctrinating children into hatred.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) July 24, 2017
Here’s Trump’s “How to get laid” advice:
HE SAID THIS TO BOY SCOUTS pic.twitter.com/SkiBUC8CRY— Jensen Karp (@JensenClan88) July 24, 2017
These Boy Scouts will always treasure the time the raving imbecile President told them about when he met Ron Fuck at the Wharton Club— Virgil Texas (@virgiltexas) July 24, 2017
He’s starting a CULTURE WAR at a Boy Scout Jamboree!
President Trump to the Boy Scouts: "Under a Trump Administration, you'll be saying 'Merry Christmas' again as you go shopping."— Jenna Johnson (@wpjenna) July 24, 2017
I don’t know if there will be any political blowback here, but I will be supremely disappointed in America if a lot of parents aren’t pulling their kids from the Boy Scouts tomorrow. This is beyond f*cked, even moreso that these kids are whooping and hollering at the prospect of killing health care for millions of people.
