President Obama Awards Himself Distinguished Public Service Medal

Breitbart – by Warner Todd Huston

On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.

Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.  

Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.

After spending the last few weeks throwing roadblocks in the path of President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, Obama nonetheless claimed in his remarks to the members of the military in attendance that “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity.”

Along with the AP, CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller also marked the ceremony with a Tweet to his followers.

Many commenters on Knoller’s Twitter feed were incredulous at the award. Some likened the award to a much maligned “participation medal” and others were skeptical of Obama’s underling giving his own boss a medal.

@markknoller he gets awards for nothing all the time. Remember that Nobel Peace Prize?

    pretty bad when you have to award yourself , because no body else sees the purpose in doing it

    its also a very loud admission of being a narcissist

  2. KOYOTE says:

    SURE THATS NOT THE “PUBLIC NUISANCE MEDAL”?

  3. Katie says:

    uh, PLLLEEEAAASSE, why must you ruin my lunch appetite?

    “I present you, Barry Soetoro, this award, recognizing the treason you committed for the last 8 yrs., of which means NOTHING in law, and will be forcefully ignored by every American National, you UN-royal high ass.”

  4. Millard says:

    “Here, pin that medal on my azz so the American people can kiss it as I leave office.” “Americans, so stupid, so racially divided, so in debt, so f*cked after 8 years of my traitorous presidency, don’t have enough thumbs to plug the dike of woes I left in my lack of legacy.

    “Hear that sucking sound? That’s me getting out of my chair in the Oral Office after 8 years and leaving a greasy sh*t stain. Have a chair, Donald.”

    “… he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.”

    Awarded by a Rothschild would have been far more appropriate.
