Internet blisters Trump for regaling Boy Scouts with ‘unspeakably inappropriate’ tales of playboys and cocktail parties
President Donald Trump gave what can only be described as a memorable speech at the 2017 Boy Scout Jamboree, regaling the youngsters with tales of attending cocktail get-togethers with “hot” guests and playboy industrialists.
When he wasn’t sharing nightlife tips, he bragged about his election win and encouraged the Boy Scouts to boo ex-President Barack Obama.
Twitter users were not amused, with one commenter simply calling the whole exhibition “disgusting.”
Along the way, some commenters turned their ire on the Boy Scouts, demanding they apologize for the president’s remarks.

Trump's speech to Boy Scouts was unspeakably inappropriate. Awaiting a statement from the organization. @boyscouts

Hey, @boyscouts , have you apologized to President Obama and condemned the shameful politicization of your organization by Donald Trump yet?
