It’s no surprise that Trump is an avid liar, and the Boy Scouts just made things even better. This only adds icing to the cake about his fiasco at the jamboree.
What Phone Call?
Trump constantly tries to spread his fake news but no one other than his supporters believes anything he says. He constantly goes back on his statements, his election promises, and anything else dealing with his cronies’ involvement in Russiagate. His credibility at the point should be in the dirt, except for we know he’s likely to embarrass himself and go on Twitter tirades. His credibility had to of sunk deeper than a mammoth stuck in a tar pit after he claimed he got a call from the President of the Boy Scouts. Guess what? The head of the Boy Scouts says what phone call?
“I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were thankful,” Trump spouted to The Wall Street Journal last week. This speech was made at the Boy Scout Jamboree which has been an organizational staple for decades. The Boy Scouts say they have no knowledge of this phone call and the Chief Executive Mike Surbaugh apologized for Trump’s speech, calling it inappropriately political, among other things.
The Inappropriate Speech
The crowd was largely 12-18-year-old boys and the president’s speech boasted about his win, completely ridiculed Hillary Clinton, and called the news dishonest. “I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent,” Surbaugh said. “We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program.”
Even the White House Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders said there was no knowledge of the phone call but then said Trump wasn’t lying. There was no phone call, how is it not a lie?! What planet do you live on? One Republican consultant even spoke out against Trump saying, “If he’s willing to lie about the Boy Scouts, what won’t he lie about? It’s another reminder that any organization that associates with President Trump risks damage to their reputation.” We have no idea who this Republican is because they asked to stay anonymous, but, well said person.
Let’s all remember folks the other lies this president has spouted during his lifetime. Not to mention during the Jamboree he told teenage boys to get a yacht because it’ll get them more…hem hem…female genitalia.
