Boy Scouts president has 85 billion reasons to excuse Trump’s wildly inappropriate Jamboree speech

The Boy Scouts of America have been criticized by some for their “weak” response to President Donald Trump’s highly politicized speech this week before the Boy Scout Jamboree in which he got thousands of scouts to boo former President Barack Obama.

As a new report from QZ notes, the president of the Boy Scouts of America has tens of billions of reasons to not more forcefully criticize the president’s speech at the Jamboree, as it could hurt his chances of getting his company’s mega-merger approved.

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson became the president of the BSA just over a year ago, and at the moment he is seeking approval from the Trump administration to sign off on a proposed $85 billion acquisition of media company Time Warner, Inc.
