    @realDonaldTrump





    Spoke to @TigerWoods to congratulate him on the great victory he had in yesterday’s @TheMasters, & to inform him that because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM!

    Fook. Really? Tiger is a fine golfer, but cripes. Debates the honour

    Is Woods going for this?

    What a joke! I like Tiger as much as the next person, but this award for playing golf?

    Woods is not the first professional golfer to earn the Medal of Freedom. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus also have Medals of Freedom, both bestowed by President George W. Bush. President Barack Obama presented the Medal of Honor to pioneering black golfer Charlie Sifford in 2014.

    The medal, the nation’s highest civilian honor, is bestowed by the president to individuals deemed to have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.

    Trump handed out his first medals last year, making a posthumous award to Elvis and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and baseball legend Babe Ruth.

    The "nation’s highest civilian honor". For GOLF? Cheapens the whole concept.

    Total BS.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Even if Tiger Woods were a shining example of virtue in all things, a Presidential Medal of Freedom for being very good at hitting a little white ball into a hole is utterly ridiculous.

    I fully agree with you, Keith... Although mdh's post clearly shows this as an established practice among presidents.
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    What ever happened to being honored by induction into "The __________ Hall of Fame"?

    "The nation’s highest civilian honor". For a buncha jocks?

    Woods might be a more apt choice than Trump means or even could comprehend. I've not really followed the sport of idiots and I loath the environmental impact of golf courses but consider the new narrative:

    Woods was an arrogant, inconsiderate, faithless slut. Then life went wrong for him and he entered a time of physical and moral torment during which it looked like he could never rise again in moral or sporting stature. But he did. Now he's officially a nice guy, family oriented, and has overcome his various injuries to become a winner again. And we all love redemption stories. Great material for a dewey movie.

    If it is good for Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicholas, then I suppose Tiger is fine, too, he is certainly in their league.

    It is all too easy to bash the president, he deserves it mostly, and he is a disgusting pig, but really, this here is just a big fat nothing-burger.

    If he starts talking about supporting reparations, then he's looking for the black vote. You know, like the Democrats.
