With Nunes honor, Trump treats Medal of Freedom like a party favor

Source: MSNBC

The White House's written statement explaining why Nunes is receiving the nation's highest civilian honor is unintentionally amusing: it argues that the Republican congressman earned the medal because he uncovered evidence of the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign (that didn't happen in reality), found proof of "illegitimate" unmaskings (that also didn't happen in reality), "thwarted" a plot to take down an American president (this is utterly bananas), proved something nefarious about the "persecution" of disgraced former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn (who wasn't persecuted), "pursued" the "Russia Hoax" (which obviously wasn't a hoax), and "uncovered the greatest scandal in American history," which the document didn't actually identify.

Perhaps most importantly, the president's statement added that Nunes deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom because the Republican lawmaker "had the fortitude to take on the media, the FBI, the Intelligence Community, the Democrat Party, foreign spies, and the full power of the Deep State."

Or put another way, Trump is celebrating Nunes for "taking on" his own country's governmental institutions that Trump ostensibly helps lead.
