    The speech was highly inappropriate by any standard. Regardless of political preferences, this was not the place for a profanity laced political speech. At least we know Mr. Trump was never associated with the Scouting Movement before his election, so no one has to be embarrassed to have approved his application.

    The Boy Scouts loved it. What's the issue?

    Trump knows nothing about scouting and its values. I find it hard to note a single point of the Scout Law he has not proudly violated. But above that, no Scout event is a proper venue for a political speech. It's also illegal since the BSA is a 501(c)(3) organization. But when has Trump ever paid attention to legalities?

    So the "boy" scouts can openly welcome homos into their ranks and be all fine with sexual perversion, but President Trump said something inappropriate?

    pfft... :bsflag:

    I listened to clips of the speech. The transcripts have obviously and appropriately been edited. Boy Scouts are required to learn about "politics" (it's called "Citizenship" and encouraged to participate. No previous president has done what Trump did: give a blatantly political speech at a non-political event designed for non-political purposes. By the way, were you ever a Boy Scout? Or a volunteer Boy Scout leader? You don't seem to be very familiar with the program or values.

    I notice that your response is off topic. When you have no point, deflect.

    How do you know the boy scouts and their parents "loved it".
