‘There’s something called human decency’: Angela Rye laughs off GOPer’s defense of Trump’s Boy Scout speech
A long-time South Carolina Republican politician was lectured on civics and human decency for trying to defend President Donald Trump.
Former South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer got more than he bargained for when he tried to defend President Donald Trump’s speech to the Boy Scout of America Jamboree on CNN’s “The Lead” with Jake Tapper.
“There is still something called human decency, and regardless of your political leanings, regardless of what party you vote — and again, these are not voting people, to Kake’s point in his rundown of this particular speech — this was inappropriate,” CNN political analyst Angela Rye concluded. “I think the first rule in public speaking is to know your audience, and I think either he’s delusional or he just doesn’t care, but this was not an appropriate speech.”
“Normally I can trust you to come through with one good polished moment, and I think you have to be honest and say this is not okay,” Rye said.
