I like Tiger Woods (and Trump as well), but Medal of Freedom?

Come on now.

It was only a matter of time before noted golf obsessive President Donald Trump publicly congratulated Tiger Woods for his comeback Masters win on Sunday. He got around to it on Monday afternoon, but it was a lot more than just a run-of-the-mill “great job, champ!” tweet.

Along with his congrats, Trump tweeted that he will be giving Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom for “his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE.”

Trump may drop Pence from the ticket in 2020 and replace him with Tiger. Landslide !!

Obama gave one to Ellen degeneres . Hell, they have been given to people who aren’t even American.

Trump should just leave Tiger alone and let him enjoy the glory himself rather than having to share it with Trump. Typical of him to be jealous of someone else in the the spotlight other than him.

As far as the Medal of Freedom for coming back from injury.... nah. While he was a magnificent golf talent, Tiger is kind of an ******* in real life. I can't say he reflects the character and values of a great American.
