Um...Trump did release his birth certificate. According to Snopes back in 2013.

Tiger Woods is a tuff one to judge, was spectacular when younger, been screwing up for 10 years with drugs and women that were not his wife, wins 1 golf tournament and boom a Metal of Freedom. It does seem strange to me.

His common bond with Donny but at least we know his golf golf scores are honest.

The "Medal of Freedom" has sadly been turned into a participation trophy for the rich and famous. Sad to see, with all the actual heros in this country that deserve it, that it goes those that play dress up for a living or play kids games.

Sports figures have gotten this award before, but typically toward the end of their careers, when they are older. They also tend not to be golf buddies and business partners of the POTUS issuing the medal, so it smacks of cronyism.

Obama gave the medal to Meryl Streep....a diehard Hollywood Democrat who campaigned for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and donated money to his campaign. She isn't retired or at the end of her career.


Tom Hanks also......another Democrat that campaigned hard for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and donated $$$$$.


Obama also gave one to Bruce Springsteen and Barabara Streisand. 2 hardcore Democrats who campaigned hard for Obama and gave money to his campaign.




But Trump giving one to Tiger is cronyism because they are friends and gold together? LMAO!!!!

How about when Obama received a transparency award, in private, by OMB watch???


Krugman could not complain about Obama's Nobel Prize because he himself won it for dubious reasons.
Two crooks winning prizes they don't deserve, now complaining about Tiger getting a prize.

But, but Trump's a racist...


So, why would they be golf buddies, business partners or anything else?
