    We need to go back in time when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for nothing. AKA Fake Award.
    Now this bullcrap.
    Everybody who has this award should go to D.C. and do a Horseface Kerry and toss the award over the White House fence.
    It has been rendered meaningless.

    Reminds me of Brezhnev awarding himself not one but two Hero of the Soviet Union awards. Which were stripped upon his death.

    These civilian freedom and service awards are a joke.

    Just think about this, anyone who is familiar with military awards.
    Can the Platoon Leader award a medal to the Company Commander?
    Of course not.
    Can the Battalion Commander award a medal to the Brigade Commander?
    Of course not.
    But here the subordinate awarded a medal to his superior, in this case the Defense Secretary to the Commander in Chief.
    Total BS.

    IMO a sitting CIC accepting that award cheapens the position. A sitting POTUS is above receiving military awards.

    If Trump is smart he'll retire the award and replace it with a new one leaving Barry the last recipient and the reason for the award's decommissioning.

    George W. and Bill Clinton were also adorned with the prestigious award. So the medal lost it's luster long ago. Love the comment to have the award retired.

    He 's doing us a big favor.

    Obviously the AWM (angry white men) haven"t been pushed to what the old nordic Vikings called, "beserker stage".

    He can't cry for three weeks like Hillary, so he has to act out with other disfunction.

    This shite is so funny, this must be the latest 'Borat' movie.

    I guess this is what you call "Legacy Building". I guess he couldn't get a REAL Military person to award it to him, so he got that milquetoast lackey Ash Crawford to do it. Might as well give Kerry the Nobel Peace Prize now. No different than all the Hollywood Libs giving themselves awards on a yearly basis.

    Did some research [very little].
    The Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service is the highest award that is presented by the Secretary of Defense, to a private citizen, politician, non-career Federal employee, or foreign national. It is presented for exceptionally distinguished service of significance to the Department of Defense as a whole, or a DoD Component or function, where recognition at the component level would not be sufficient for the service rendered

    Notable recipients

    Spielberg? What for, pray tell?
    Note the guy [Ash Carter] who gave it to Obama has it himself.
    If you are wondering who Kristin Krohn Devold is, well:
    Kristin Krohn Devold (born 12 August 1961 in Ålesund) is a former Minister of Defence of Norway.
    WTF? I wonder who she serviced to get that.

    So this award is a suck a$$ award the elite give to each other. Funny I never heard a peep when Clinton or Bush got it. Clinton I can maybe understand, since the MSM would tend to hide it, Bush not so much. Anybody remember hearing Bush got this at the time?

    Spielberg was awarded the medal for his technical role in helping the CIA and media with....

    9/11

    Ronald Reagan may have been a B movie actor, but make no mistake that Barry is a major Hollywood production, and maybe that is why Spielberg got the same award, perhaps for his pre-emptive (Barry's Nobel Prize comes to mind) direction of beltway dog-wagging.

    Reagan was a good actor. Not great. I think Robert Redford would have made a better president.

    at least those mutts on d view would shut up for 4 years. they need a good stiffy.

    According to popular lore, carpet munching counts as getting laid, and have you seen Robert Redford's face lately? The office of POTUS would require 100% digitization.
