Not satisfied that he received a very undeserved Nobel Prize, Obama decided to award himself another honor he does not deserve, the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service. The ceremony saw Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him the honor.
Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.
Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.
After spending the last few weeks throwing roadblocks in the path of President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, Obama nonetheless claimed in his remarks to the members of the military in attendance that “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity.”
Along with the AP, CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller also marked the ceremony with a Tweet to his followers.
Why didn’t he give himself the Congressional Medal of Honor? He has no qualms about usurping the powers of Congress and the RINOs in charge don’t have the cojones to stop him.
