'Scum of the Earth' - Donald Trump blasted over Boy Scout speech

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Donald Trump is under fire for a speech he gave to the Boy Scouts on Monday.

The US President had travelled to the venue in West Virginia, where 40,000 boys in the scouting program had gathered for the National Scout Jamboree. 

He said he didn't want to talk about politics, but ended up doing so anyway, lambasting the "fake news media."

The President continued by saying he wanted to change the word "swamp" to "cesspool" to refer to Washington D.C, and also blasted former leader Barack Obama.

Twitter wasn't happy with the President in the wake of the speech, see some responses below:
