Trump has been caught out again and it’s really ridiculous because he did not have to lie, he should have simply told the truth.
Trump last week went to West Virginia and gave a speech to the Boy Scouts National Jamboree that he turned almost into one of his political rallies. The parents of the Scouts complained about his divisive, derogatory and very political speech.
Trump then told the Wall Street Journal that after his controversial speech at the Boy Scouts National Jamboree in West Virginia, the head of the Boy Scouts called him and told him it was “the greatest speech that was ever made to them.” But the organization told TIME they are unaware of any call from national leadership placed to the White House.
So while Trump managed to hoodwink the Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine was not having it and made some fact checking, made calls to the Boy Scouts National Jamboree and caught Trump in a blatant lie.
The Boy Scouts Organisation is not aware of any calls made to Trump to praise him on “the greatest speech the Boy Scouts National Jamboree ever had.”
When Time Magazine contacted the Boy Scouts Organisation, it provided this statement:
“The Chief Scout Executive’s message to the Scouting community speaks for itself,” the organization said, referring to a July 27 statement from Michael Surbaugh, the Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, who apologized to anyone in the scouting community who could have been offended or alarmed by the political rhetoric in the speech.
“For years, people have called upon us to take a position on political issues, and we have steadfastly remained non-partisan and refused to comment on political matters. We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program,” Surbaugh wrote.
So this means Trump simply made up the telephone call which is embarrassing for a President and continues to erode any trust on whatever he says. So after making up and photoshopping a Time Magazine cover that he hung in his golf clubs, he is now making up telephone calls!
Probably Kellyanne Conway will explain this telephone call praising Trump’s greatest speech.
