Earlier this week, Trump delivered a horrific speech at the Boy Scouts of America National Jamboree. During his speech, he urged the young men in attendance to boo former President Obama before cheering his name. He then went off on a Trump signature tangent and attacked HHS Secretary Tom Price, threatening to fire him if he couldn’t pass Trumpcare through the Senate.
Following the speech, the media highlighted that Obama had participated in the Indonesian version of boy scouts, while Trump had never partaken during his childhood.
Right-wing radio host Janet Mefferd instantly questioned if Obama had indeed been a boy scout in Indonesia. In her latest broadcast, she said she needed proof, similar to the birther conspiracy that hindered Obama during his time in the White House.
“Don’t you find that a little strange? I’m not saying that it isn’t true, there are other people who are now saying that he was a Boy Scout in Jakarta. I just have never heard him say that, have you? Maybe I missed it somewhere along the way, but if that were the case and Obama was a Boy Scout in Indonesia, why didn’t he come to the Jamboree?”
She then questioned why news organizations didn’t ask Barack: “Were you a Boy Scout? Let me see your badges, let me see your uniform—did you save your uniform? Oh, you threw it away. Where were you [as a Scout]? What was your pack number? Where exactly did you meet? What sorts of things did you do?”
