Trump says he will award Rush Limbaugh with Medal of Freedom

Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump told network anchors during a private lunch Tuesday that he will award Rush Limbaugh with the Medal of Freedom, one day after the prominent political radio host announced he has advanced lung cancer.

According to a person familiar with the discussion, Trump informed anchors he will bestow Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the coming months. Limbaugh has been a staunch ally of the President's for years, and dined with him at his Palm Beach golf club over the holidays. Once, during an event in the Rose Garden, Trump praised Limbaugh as someone who "can speak for three hours without a phone call."

wtf?

He doesn’t drain the swamp. He engulfs everything into the swamp.

Give Jared one at the same time. Why not? Let the country see that while we're worrying about pandemics and wars and immigration and climate change, he's spending his time drumming up new things that will bother all sane-thinking people and giving out our highest honors to worthless recipients.

He does not deserve a pass--he deserves nada!
