Here's the list of all recipients. Obama gave it to Warren Buffett, so I suppose there's a case that it's not too outrageous to give it to Adelson, as long as she's done something--anything--beyond fund Trump's idiocy.

Trump to honor donorís wife with presidential award

The AP has largely stopped fucking around when writing stories and headlines about Trump and his supporters.

they did not announce who accepted the medals for Ruth or Presley, at least not while I was watching. For Presley it was a guy , maybe a nephew or cousin? Maybe Lisa Marie did not want to show up.

"Obama gave the medal of freedom to John Glenn, so I suppose there's some case of giving it to Miriam Adelson...."


Warren Buffett is a public intellectual who has pledged to give 99% of his sizable and self made fortune to charity.

Tiger Woods gets his medal Monday but he's the only one getting one that day. It's OK because Trump found out Tiger is less than 50% black. (mother is Thai and his Dad was part black)

More importantly he's a golfer, and, after himself and money, golf is Trumps one true love. I also suspect that Trump believes that by giving him the medal of freedom he can convince Tiger to endorse his golf courses. Or at the very least convince him to play a round with Trump at one of his courses according the the standard course rules (i.e. the rules don't apply to Trump).

because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM!
Seriously, his life?

"Ask"? Nah: Trump just wants to compare notes and see if they both manage it the same way. Maybe trade some philandering advice for some golf advice, ya know what I'm sayin'?

When you blow the dust off the book, it reads "how to cheat 12 different women at the same time".
