Trump Faces Pushback from Police, Boy Scouts, and Military

President Trummp

The man illegitimately occupying the Oval office has become such a liability that every time he opens his mouth, the group he’s addressing ends up having to put out a statement separating itself from his inappropriate words. This week alone the head of the Boy Scouts, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the top leaders of the military have all had to publicly push back against him.


First Trump gave a speech to a group of Boy Scouts which was inappropriately partisan, disrespectful, profane, and seedy. In response, after parents around the nation threatened to remove their kids from the organization, the head of the Boy Scouts put out a statement condemning Trump’s speech. But as it turns out, Trump’s embarrassing week was just getting revved up.


Then Trump announced on Twitter that he’ll no longer allow transgender people in the military, without even bothering to specify if he was including those who are already in the military. This prompted military leaders to state that they have no intention of implementing a policy change based on a tweet unless Trump issues a formal order through proper procedures. This means that, in effect, the military is using a technicality to defy Trump’s wishes, because it doesn’t truly see Trump as the president. But then came the matter of the police.


Yesterday Trump told a group of police officers in Long Island that they should make a point of using violence against suspects they’re arresting. That led the Suffolk County Police Department to announce via Twitter that “The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners. Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously. As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners.” And then the International Association of Chiefs of Police told him to buzz off as well sinking Trump to an all-time low.
