That honor became absolutely without ANY Merit when Obama took a Peace prize for just getting elected
Look, you have to be able to show SOME accomplishment, well you used to
Obama had none of that, I am every bit as worthy as he was when he received it...neither of us have done a damn thing for "Peace"
That set the stage for eight years of Medal of Freedom awards to mostly goofballs
just saying neither award is really an honor anymore
They have became Participation Trophy shit
For example did you know Obama awarded Angela Merkle the Medal of Freedom ?
Redford and DeNiro got one as did Spielberg
so did Bill and Milinda Gates
etc etc etc
