5. The arts? Spanky doesn't give a crap about the arts,

except maybe for cheesy oil paintings of himself that he can hang in his hotels and golf clubs. Have you ever heard of him going to a play or a concert like the Obamas did? Ever seen him turn up at the Kennedy Center or any other concert hall? He did have a fake Renoir in his dictator-chic NYC apartment, which he insisted was genuine, although the real one was in a museum in Chicago. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/10/donald-trumps-fake-renoir He also wanted to borrow a Van Gogh from the Guggenheim for his private WH living quarters but they refused, offering a gold toilet instead. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/the-white-house-wanted-a-van-gogh-the-guggenheim-offered-a-used-solid-gold-toilet/2018/01/25/38d574fc-0154-11e8-bb03-722769454f82_story.html?utm_term=.19d675cfbb21 But Trump isn't an art connoisseur; he was interested in having paintings by famous artists so he could brag about having them.

The other problem with awarding arts medals is that it can be safely said that most people involved in the arts are not fans of Trump, so he wouldn't want to award medals to them, and they wouldn't want to accept them from him. He may have to award the medals to the likes of Ted Nugent and that guy who paints the kitschy pictures of Trump as Jesus or George Washington.
