The crowd of boy scouts and scout leaders attending Donald Trump’s Monday evening speech to the Boy Scouts of America’s National Jamboree booed former President Barack Obama. Trump is literally telling Boy Scouts to boo Obama. This man is an absolute disgrace and a national embarrassment.
“By the way, just a question. Did President Obama ever come to a jamboree?” Trump asked the crowd, which booed in response.
“The answer is no, but we’ll be back,” Trump added.
While Obama never addressed the gathering in person, he did record a video message to the National Jamboree in 2010, noting the history of the Boy Scouts and the organization’s service to the United States as it marked its 100th anniversary.
Obama was a member of the Indonesian Scout Association as a child, reaching the equivalent of a Cub Scout, according to reports. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were scouts. Trump was not a member of the organization as a child.
