Wow. Just when you think he can't go any lower or crasser, there he goes. The profane spectacle of Trump haranguing 40,000 Boy Scouts - children, let's be clear - in West Virginia about his petty grievances and electoral triumphs (STILL!? WTF?!) was variously critiqued as "mortifying," "a disgusting display," "not right," "the antithesis of Scout values," "indoctrinating kids into hate," "sick" and "a sin." Yes." Following the uproar, the Boy Scouts released a statement aying the organization was “wholly non-partisan and does not promote any one position, product, service, political candidate or philosophy.” No.
