Wednesday's HOT MIC

Wednesday's HOT MIC

Stephen, in defense of the "perma-haters," Trump's Jamboree speech compromised every single part of the Scout Law, to at least some degree. As an Eagle Scout myself, I wrote the president an open letter on the issue, and wished him well, hoping for a better speech next year.

Many of those who attacked Trump on the speech did not also defend him on the Poland speech as I did. The man can give an inspiring speech, and I noted in my open letter that his Jamboree speech would likely appeal to the "red" scouts in the audience. But a Jamboree is not the place to talk about politics, and even the "perma-haters" were correct in that.
