No American president has ever had his ego stroked more than Barack Obama, and none has accomplished so little and is so undeserving of worldwide recognition.
To be given the Nobel Peace Prize, within days after his inauguration, for simply being the first African-American president is unprecedented and mind blowing. And instead of unifying racial relations in our country and promoting peace, we are currently dealing with intensified racial relations. Last week’s Facebook Live hate crime is just the tip of the iceberg.
But then, to be given the Medal for Distinguished Public Service by the Department of Defense is outrageous and patently ridiculous but nevertheless, true!
As Independent Journal Review corroborates:
On January 4th, the Pentagon’s Department of Defense (DoD) awarded outgoing President Barack Obama with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service, writes The Washington Post.
It went on to explain that as part of the Executive Branch, the DoD gives the award for:
“…exceptionally distinguished service of significance to the Department of Defense as a whole or distinguished service of such exceptional significance” to a part of the Defense Department for their awards to be considered insufficient, according to a Pentagon fact sheet on the award.
“The service or assistance may have been rendered at considerable personal sacrifice and inconvenience that was motivated by patriotism, good citizenship, and a sense of public responsibility.”
This totally sounds like another meaningless participation trophy, for just showing up, and we know how much Obama enjoys being in the spotlight, don’t we?
Politicians like former U.S. Representative Ron Paul and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin commented in social media that president Obama didn’t deserve such accolades! Check out what they have to say:
Ummm, really? This is what happens when you grow up thinking every kid gets a trophy…. https://t.co/x4KVfarWpU

One thing we can all agree on, however, if pontificating nonsense were ever given an award, Barack Obama would be the first in line to receive that award!
