I kind'a look at Rush's acceptance of the award as the whole of the Repub Party accepting that award for approving the use of racist demagoguery as a legitimate campaign issue to rally around on.Lets face it, the Presidential Medal of Freedom has never meant much, it has always been one of those throwaway pat on the backs that the President pulls out of his pocket when he needs a feel good moment. It is a political stunt more than anything.
But, that being said, it is getting really hard to not associate this Administration with White Supremist, isnt' it. This is one more Advertisement that the Democrats get to use.
'Trump gives highest award to man that says that slavery made streets safe'.
I mean, their own president exploits it with great success on the Repub base so........
