Trump day!

Hey, When will Trump be receiving HIS Nobel Peace Prize?

I mean, Obama got his just for being the first Black President.
He didn't do a darn thing and got the award.

Lastly, he awarded his "door-stopper" of a VP Joe Biden the Congressional Medal of Honor for no valid reason.

These two examples only go to cheapen the meaning of the awards, and go on to prove that the wussification of society is a real thing. It falls under the "everyone gets a trophy just for showing up" scenario.

I am a legend in my own mind!

awards to help improve their self-esteem for being underachievers

Just to clarify, Obama didn't give Biden the Congressional Medal of Honor. That is reserved for military only

He gave him the Presidential Medal of Freedom....
