The president who spends almost half of his time golfing, just gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a fellow golfer.

Okay is it just me or was that incredibly cringe-inducing to watch?

President Donald Trump presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Tiger Woods in a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden on Monday, honoring his friend and golfing icon with the highest honor the president can bestow on a civilian.

Woods, 43, is one of the sport’s most decorated golfers and has captured more prize money during his career than any other rival in golf history, banking more than $118 million in winnings since he turned pro in 1996 at the age of 20.

The president called Woods a “true legend” and “an extraordinary athlete who has transformed golf and achieved new levels of dominance.”

“He’s also a great person. He’s a great guy,” Trump said. “Tiger Woods is a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive.”

Apparently, Woods is the fourth professional golfer to be honored in this manner (Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Charlie Sifford, came before him) and also the youngest. 

However, to me, this felt like a hastily thrown together distraction that Trump hoped would get the media focused on a new and more positive story so that they would stop reporting on his attempts to keep his tax records hidden, his attempts to obstruct Congressional interviews and to keep the unredacted Mueller report under wraps.

Of course, that did not work, but at least he did not make moves to start a new war as a distraction. 

Oh wait, he did that too.

    Not to mention that Woods is almost as much a sneak-around-on-your wife kinda guy as Putin’s Puto. So obviously this medal is now a sign of infidelity. One more thing that cheeto-faced twat has managed to spoil.

      Disgusting. It really is. The man can hit a little ball really well. That’s great. BFD. He got over his addictions. Good for him. So do countless people with far far less resources and far far more consequences. He represents Trump’s America.
      Not mine.

    If Tiger had any integrity left, he would have declined the White Supremacist occupier of the WH invitation.

    Woods has been involved with and benefited from Trump’s company for years. This isn’t a surprise. Trump always rewards his cronies. This medal is just a cheap payoff that costs Trump nothing.
