‘Scumbag Steve’ of Meme Fame Calls Trump ‘One of the Biggest Scumbags Around’
Blake Boston ascended to Internet infamy in 2011 when a photo of him as a 16-year-old wearing a backwards hat, taken by his mother in their home in Medfield, became the basis for the once ubiquitous “Scumbag Steve” meme.
“Ever since I started to embrace it, I’ve thought that maybe it happened for a reason, that it’s a blessing in disguise,” Boston, of Millis, told the Globe in 2012 while outlining his newfound success as a YouTube personality. “Once that shot comes, you make your own luck by forcing your way through the door and trying to come out the other side.”
Now, Boston is joining Sen. Elizabeth Warren in wading into the 2016 presidential race to condemn Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
“Being considered the quintessential internet scumbag, known worldwide—bragging in Trump fashion—I can, without any hesitation, say that Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, bully, and beyond measure one of the biggest scumbags around,” Boston told BuzzFeed News Monday.
Boston, who boasts nearly 6,000 followers on Twitter, is a vocal Democrat.

“He’s that asshole scumbag that insults someone’s physical make up and thinks he’s got a good comeback,” Boston went on. “Calling people fat, short, ugly, poor, smelly, a dummy, et cetera, are what his pubescent mind thinks are character flaws. So many of his put-downs involve what Trump must feel are physical deficits in himself. And the irony is that he wants to sue anyone that he feels disparages him. He can call people out but he can’t take it. So much so that he wants to fuck with the First Amendment. Who the fuck but a scumbag would mess with that?”
“Damn, let’s hope I don’t get sued,” he concluded. “The man’s a liar. Plain and simple he lies. Scumbags lie.”
