List of Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients
Not really a big fan of Rush and I've never listened to his show, or any AM radio for that matter (ok maybe traffic reports before Waze) but can you please click that link above and tell me what any of the ones in the entertainment etc categories did to deserve such a medal?
De Niro? Streisand? Lorne Michaels?
Sorry, I don't see it for any of them.
I get it for the military, medical, scientists, astronauts... absolutely.
Actors etc? Hard pass from me on all of them. They get enough awards from each other during ass kissing season in Hollywood.

If someone could build a machine that ran off of right wing hypocrisy we’d have solved the energy crisis.

I don't wish death on anyone and I hope he pulls through his cancer. But he didn't deserve the Medal of Freedom. He made it a business to say racist and outlandish things about people over the years. And to be given the award during the State of the Union was just a joke. Sorry if I rub anyone wrong with my opinion but come on now it was ridiculous.
