NY Mag -- The 14 Most Inappropriate Moments From Trump’s Speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree

By Margaret Hartmann

Like usual, the President’s speech to an audience of mostly pre teen boys at the National Boy Scouts Jamboree in West Virginia on Monday was disturbing, inappropriate and an embarrassment. It was shocking, even by the Trump standards we all know and have come to expect.

Trump even told the crowd of youngsters a story about real estate developer William Levitt who he saw at a cocktail party, old and sitting by himself, saying, “it was very sad because the hottest people in New York were at this party.

He reiterated his stance regarding the “War on Christmas,” telling them that when they go shopping, they’ll “be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.

Trump encouraged the crowd to boo for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. He spoke about polling, bragged about his 2016 election, and spoke in incoherent tangents about his rich friends.
