Fmr. CIA Director: Trump’s Boy Scout Speech Like Authoritarian Youth Rally

The President's speech wasn't appropriate for children, no matter what their political affiliation....

From Journalist Dan Rather’s News and Guts:

ANALYSIS: Former Acting Director of the CIA, John McLaughlin, tweeted, “Trump’s Boy Scout speech had the feel of a third world authoritarian’s youth rally.”

With that said, does this statement from the Boy Scouts of America go far enough?

“The Boy Scouts of America is wholly non-partisan and does not promote any one position, product, service, political candidate or philosophy. The invitation to visit the National Jamboree is a long-standing tradition and is in no way an endorsement of any political party or specific policies.”

The Boy Scouts should probably also address the fact that the President’s speech wasn’t appropriate for children, no matter what their political affiliation.

CNN put together “the 29 most cringe-worthy lines from Donald Trump’s hyper-political speech to the Boy Scouts.”
