lmao! Do these libs even do a second of research?
Why the whataboutism? It is a depressing reflection of our culture in general rather than a particular president that sports is one of the largest categories. More than science or space exploration.

So you were equally mad at Obama when he gave about 12 athletes and numerous Hollywood actors the Presidential Medal of Freedom? Or is it only a problem now that Trump handed out one of them? Also, are you like Krugman where he just flat out ignored it?

I am not a big Tiger fan. I always looked at him as somewhat of a robot, and very flawed human being. The name of his yacht, "Privacy" is very telling. It signals he really doesn't like the public in general nor his adoring fans. It smacks of elitism.

He also brought all of his problems on himself. He is not a "victim" as he would have you believe. All that being said, he has overcome great physical injuries, and mental demons to get back to being relevant, winning golfer against men often about half his age.

We are a nation of second chances, and I am willing to give Tiger one.

It's a game. Something people do for fun.

Are we going to start issuing them to the best Fortnite video game player too?

These awards are worthless.

A golfer? How has a golfer contributed to humanity in any way?

You'd be better off giving it to the cashier at the grocery store who volunteers in the soup kitchen 2x a month.

were you mad when Obama gave the Medal to Hollywood actors that donated to his campaign?

Woods probably just lost a lot of nutty fans. Kudos for bravely accepting.
