Look, regardless of your take on Donald Trump, there is no question of the fact that his weird stream-of-consciousness way of talking unquestionably makes him one of the funniest presidents in living memory. Ronald Reagan may have had his array of Soviet jokes, but Trump’s utterly demented surreal asides ultimately win.
Such was the case in Trump’s address today to the Boy Scout Jamboree – i.e. a massive collection of children – where he waxed poetic about a rich friend of his who used to have orgies on his yacht.
No, seriously. Referring to his mate William Levitt, he suggested to a whole bunch of 12-year-olds that the insanely wealthy developer probably used his superyacht for sex.

“[My friend] sold his company for a tremendous amount of money,” Trump told the children. “And he went out and bought a big yacht. And he had a very…interesting life.”
(He emphasises the word ‘interesting’ very heavily there, by the way.)
“I won’t go into any more than that cause you’re Boy Scouts,” Trump continues. “So I’m not going to tell you what he did.”
Hint for those reading along at home: Trump means that Levitt fucked on that boat. He fucked heaps. That’s what Trump means, just in case you didn’t quite get it.
He also used his address at the Boy Scouts to talk about health care reform – a topic on which 12 year olds are well versed – and also getting the Scouts to boo Obama. Because obviously.
