Our lame duck president has truly humiliated himself this time while slapping deserving Americans in the face.
The watchdog group Judicial Watch just gave him the prestigious honor of being the laziest president we’ve ever had, but he still thinks he’s deserving of an honor bestowed by the Department of Defense, which is the highest award that is presented to a private citizen, politician, non-career Federal employee, or foreign national. It is presented for exceptionally distinguished service of significance to the Department of Defense as a whole, or a DoD Component or function, where recognition at the component level would not be sufficient for the service rendered.
Here’s the kicker – He awarded the medal to himself!
On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
This move really cheapens the otherwise prestigious honor for those who have actually earned it, making it feel more like a participation trophy.
Carter went on to say that “the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief,” per the Associated Press.
Americans are furious that he sunk so low as to award himself this medal when we feel he’s done absolutely nothing to earn it. How he can stand there so smug and proud while being presented the medal is beyond us. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if Michelle, her mother, and Sasha and Malia will also receive one. Heck, while they’re at it, tie one around the dogs Bo and Sunny’s necks to wear as a collar.
