Trump To Award Medal Of Freedom To Man Who Called Obama “The Magic Negro” And Who Coined “Femi-Nazi”

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump plans to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the highest civilian award in the U.S. – to conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh after learning of his advanced cancer diagnosis, the president told television anchors at a private lunch.

Limbaugh, 69, revealed his cancer diagnosis on his popular radio program Monday afternoon, telling listeners that his treatment plan likely means “there are going to be days when I’m not able to be here.”

Limbaugh has repeatedly been spotted golfing with Trump at the president’s Mar-a-Lago beach club and dining at the clubhouse afterwards. Asked about the forthcoming award, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in an email, “I actually have ethics so I’m not going to comment on an off the record lunch.”
