At this point, we should no longer be surprised when Donald Trump turns a seemingly benign event into a highly inappropriate political rally, and yet here we are. Did you think that his health care press conference would be the only insane thing of the day? Well, you would be wrong. On Monday evening, our POTUS attended the Boy Scouts of America’s annual Jamboree in West Virginia and preceded to give a strange and politically charged speech to 40,000 Scouts.

On top of attacking Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama (who was actually a Boy Scout) and bragging about his election victory, Trump also promised to repeal Obamacare (and fire Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price if the legislation doesn’t pass), prompting the crowd to break out in chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” Trump also went on to ominously harp on the Scout value, loyalty, saying “As the scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal. We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that.”
