Stephen Colbert Updates the Official Boy Scout Oath In Honor of President Trump
President Trump's speech at the annual Boy Scout Jamboree late Monday continues to stir controversy for its hyperpartisan and wildly inappropriate content.
"Obviously, this is an event for children from all over the country, and it is a completely nonpartisan event so Trump left the politics behind and just talked about his hopes for their future," opened "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday.
"I'm just kidding," he added. Trump "did his thing."
In front of approximately 40,000 Boy Scouts, President Trump took jabs at President Obama as well as the media. He made a plea for loyalty shortly before threatening to fire his Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. And he told the boys a longwinded story about real-estate developer William Levitt and the “interesting” activities that took place on his yacht.
“Oh, you’re Boy Scouts, but you know life. You know life. So, look at you. Who would think this is the Boy Scouts, right?” Trump asked the crowd.
"Yeah, you're Boy Scouts, but you know life, you know, billionaires, international waters, no witnesses, gambling, cockfights, some ladies, everyone's wearing loose clothing," Colbert mocked after playing a clip. "I forgot where I was going with this, anyway, work hard, kids."
In light of the speech, Colbert came up with a new Trump-inspired oath for the Boy Scouts of America: "On my honor, I will do my best to make a tremendous amount of money and buy a sex yacht like that old guy the president knows, to keep myself physically strong with golf and steak, and refer all questions to outside counsel. Merry Christmas!"
