I think its more of an issue with the individual receiving the award, but you went another direction.


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.

Tiger Woods is Trumps golfing buddy. Not rocket science.

Usually the honor is bestowed upon those who have had a lifetime of achievements. Woods is still active in his field and has plenty of time to mess things up again.

I'm not saying he isn't worthy of it, just not at this time.

that's not what Krugman said. He acted like Trump giving the Medal to a sports figure was the crime here.

Krugman is an idiot. Tiger is something like the fourth golfer to get the medal. After his comeback, he deserved it.

Tiger is useful to him, because Tiger can make golf more popular again, which would benefit Trump financially.

Trump just bought himself license to cheat (more) next time they go golfing. Meh.

After Miriam Adelson was given a Medal of Freedom, it became obvious that Trump considers them a trinket to reward loyalty to him, personally.
