Former And Current Boy Scouts Respond To Trump's Jamboree Speech On Twitter

By Mark Pygas

President Trump gave a speech at the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia last night. The event, which is held every four years, has gotten social media talking after it seemed to turn into more of a political rally. During the speech, Trump commented on how big the crowd was, encouraged the children to boo former President Barack Obama, railed against Hillary Clinton and the "cesspool" of politics, and brought up his electoral college victory. 

Unsurprisingly, people took issue with Trump making a speech for children so political. Former and current Boy Scouts took to Twitter to voice their disapproval, including Ted Genoways, whose thread has since gone viral.
