    He is President and all presidents are invited
    From that point on, it is up to Trump to choose some appropriate words

    The fact that he didn't leaves him open to criticism

    So, you don't have any point, just that you want to attack Trump whatever he does. Why is that? I read the transcript of the speech and I saw nothing wrong.

    Wrong. They knew what they were getting when they invited him. To complain that he didn't morph into something else borders on insanity.

    BSA ALWAYS invites POTUS to its jamborees

    It is up to the President to speak appropriate sentiments

    Like being prepared, being trustworthy, loyal, courteous, kind......
    Values of citizenship

    Not Political hackery about your opponents and bragging about how much you won the election

    Your all a bunch of sheep. I mean really?
    Look at CNN's list of "29 inappropriate statements" and maybe - maaaybe 2 were not that cool.
    This is just another vaporous faux outrage against someone you all hate. Period.
    I watched a good part of the speech and clearly the boys (and parents) and I did not hear one single boo...one single awkward silence...one single jeer. All anyone could hear was applause, cheering and laughter.
    Pathetic

    I rarely comment on any of Trump's speeches, so lumping me with the many who wig out on every tweet is an unfounded assumption on your part. I wonder why you do that, assume things about people with no evidence at all? I made the OP because I have a 60 year relationship with the Scouting movement and thought the venue was inappropriate (not the speech itself).

    Trump's speech to the BSA was one of the best speeches ever given. That Democrats made their opposition before they ever heard it does not diminish the import a bit.

    THE Boy Scouts is also supposed to be a Christian organization. BUT a Christian has no place there since it has been made into a gay pedophile turning organization. You may not like what Trump said in his speech, BUT the facts are that If the BSA were to actually follow the founders original tenets for the organization no dimshit scum liberals could join it. If a scout troop allows a gay to enter the troop they are putting the children at risk. It is the same as the bathroom shit, and all the other FORCED agenda things from the liberal hit in this country. Why not let a Hetro MAN be a girl scout leader and teach the little girls how to change their Tampax?? Maybe one of you liberals daughters? He could show her how to do a lot of things she needs to learn!!! Oh I forgot that would be okay with liberals too wouldn't it.

    You cannot separate Donald Trump from his speech. The narcissist was known to be boastful, lying, fixated on President Obama's popularity, and party-political. The scouting leadership was in a bind whereby their honorary chief should not be let loose on impressionable children but it would have been better had they forgotten to send out an invitation than to have to issue an apology to the scouts' parents.

    I loved Trump's speech segment, when he told the story about a fellow he had met at a cocktail party.
    That's a story every impressable 12 to 18 year old will use as a guiding light to help them fulfill the principles of Boy Scouts. Not really. Maybe he thought he was in the locker room having one of his classic locker room moments, like when he was talking about
    "grabbing pussy". This speech was just another unpresidential moment for Trump.
    As a role model for kids, Trump fails miserably.
