The Jackass and the Jamboree

Yesterday the empty suit in the Oval Office appeared at the Boy Scout Jamboree of 40,000 scouts and once again embarrassed America. Just give this fool an audience and let him show his ass. Boy Scout officials issued a statement following Trump’s totally inappropriate comments saying that they are a non partisan organization. Even they were embarrassed at Trump’s ignorant behavior. How much more of this clown can this nation take?

Meanwhile an even further embarrassment and blight on American democracy was taking place when Jared Kushner, Trump’s son in law, showed up in front of the West Wing of the White House and gave remarks. Kushner had no business whatsoever taking his grinning, conniving, behind to a podium at the White House as if he is some type of elected official. That too was inappropriate. What every red blooded southerners should really be upset about is that during the campaign Trump fueled the flames of anti-Semitism using the phrase “Jew Media” then turned around and put his 36-year old son-in law, Jared Kushner, a Jew, in charge of the entire federal government. Where are the true Klansmen on this one? Or did Trump pull a fast one on you too? Huh.

If he were not so inept and ignorant one would be tempted to compare Trump’s Boy Scout appearance to Hiller’s Youth Movement in which Hitler enlisted every German boy between the ages of 10 and 18 for his brand of Aryan supremacy brainwashing for a future Germany. That movement, along with Hitler, ended badly. We can only wish the same results for Trump’s bungling attempt to brainwash the Boy Scouts. This man is beyond pathetic. But every day, another episode of Trumpism unfolds. But, standing right beside Trump at the Boy Scout Jamboree was who else, Rick Perry, skinning and grinning—embarrassing the Great State of Texas. Perry should be ashamed of himself.

So just what could the Boy Scouts in attendance learn from Trump’s attendance? The Boy Scout Oath or Promise says this: “On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.” It is clear that Trump was never a Boy Scout, and never read the Boy Scout oath. If the Boy Scouts were to be inspired by Trump’s remarks yesterday, they could re-write the Oath to read: “I will do my best to serve myself, to commit treason against my country, and to obey no laws, to help no one but myself, my family, and those loyal to me, to get fat and unfit, to be mentally dumb and stupid and to be as morally corrupt as possible.” And while they are at it they could re-write the Boy Scout Motto of “Be Prepared,” to, “Don’t prepare anything, just show up and act a foul-mouthed fool.” They could likewise change the Boy Scout Slogan, “Do a Good Turn Daily,” to “Seek revenge everyday against somebody.”
