On Tuesday, Trump gave right-wing radio hack Rush Limbaugh the same Medal of Freedom that Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy, Harvey Milk, Elie Wiesel and all these others received.. 

Trump placed a man who has degraded women, made horribly racist comments, mocked disabled people like actor Michael J. Fox, who has Parkinson’s disease, and said that white people should not be responsible for slavery.

Everything this man touches gets ruined, Trump has now put his ugly mark on the United States’ highest award bestowed on a citizen.

  • Wash DC says:

    St of the Union address, is not the place to honor so many persons, seems like the list went on and on.
