With just two weeks left in office, President Trump is rewarding odious longtime suck-ups Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.
Both are among Trump’s most vocal supporters in his quest to undermine the Justice Department’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Speaking to Fox & Friends today about Nunes, Trump said:
“What he’s gone through, and his bravery, he should get a very important medal,” Trump said.
You’ll recall that last year Trump awarded gaseous radio host Rush Limbaugh with the same award.
