This past week or so has been crazy for President Trump. He just eliminated another top terrorist, he was just acquitted of both articles of impeachment, he delivered a powerful State of the Union address, all of which made the left furious.
The fact that the Democratic party is falling apart is just the cherry on top of it all, especially with the catastrophe of Democratic Iowa Caucus.
Now, he has honored a conservative icon with one of the top accomplishments a citizen can achieve, he was awarded the Medal of Freedom, and the Democrats hate it.
According to CNN,
President Donald Trump awarded the Medal of Freedom to conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday in an unprecedented move during the State of the Union address.
First lady Melania Trump placed the medal on the visibly surprised Limbaugh, one day after the talk show host revealed he has advanced lung cancer.
"Here tonight is a special man, someone beloved by millions of Americans who just received a Stage 4 advanced cancer diagnosis. This is not good news, but what is good news is that he is the greatest fighter and winner that you will ever meet," the President said during his speech, thanking the radio host for his "decades of tireless devotion to our country."
Trump, in announcing the award, highlighted Limbaugh's charity work.
"I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving our country's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom," Trump said, instructing the first lady to bestow the medal on Limbaugh.
The response to this news came quickly over social media.
Hitler awarded Joseph Goebbels the Iron Cross, so it's fitting that Trump would hang a Medal of Freedom on Rush Limbaugh for comparable hateful screeds against minorities, women, LGBTQ, and the disabled

I wish a full recovery for Rush Limbaugh but the idea he deserves a medal of freedom is offensive. He's built a radio empire on spreading hate, spewing disinformation and dividing Americans. It cheapens the Medal for every person who earned the distinction. Typical Trump

Past recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom:
Chief Joe Medicine Crow
Bill and Melinda Gates
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
General Wesley Clark
And now…Rush Limbaugh
I'm physically ill. #SOTU

Voter Fraud Ahead of Iowa Caucus, More than 18,000 EXTRA Names on Voter Rolls
Voter fraud is an ongoing problem that has been thriving for far too long. It seems ironic that the states that have had the biggest problems with fraud have been either swing states or largely Democrat states.
If I had to take a guess, I'd say that's why those states even have so much blue in them already. Continue reading…
