Every US president since William Howard Taft has served as the honorary president of the Boys Scouts of America. President Obama accepted his role as honorary president in March of last year. So as you know, when the 100th anniversary of the Boys Scouts came along late last month, Obama decided to… go on The View instead. Hey, when you’re down 14 points with women, an American institution like the Boy Scouts will just have to wait.
However, Obama did record a message that was broadcast to the 43,000 Boy Scouts in attendance at the National Jamboree in Virginia.
This is footage from just one sliver of the crowd, but it doesn’t appear that Obama’s pre-recorded message was warmly received that day:
President Obama got a much more welcoming reception from The View women, don’t you think?
But on the bright side, Joy Behar became the first daytime female talk show host to hermetically seal her panties while still wearing them, and more than a few Boy Scouts got a chance to earn their Boo-Bird badges, so it turned out to be a “win-win” for all parties involved.
