Obama Gets “Participation” Trophy [VIDEO]


Just when you thought you’d seen everything you could possibly see with relation to Barack Obama he comes up with something new. This time, I’m pretty sure this event has never been done before and will likely never be done again.

President Obama likes to collect medals and awards. In his case, they really are just participation trophies. You’ll recall in 2009 without having done a thing he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In remembrance of his Peace Prize he did drop slightly more than 26,000 bombs in Afghanistan and the Middle East last year. We all know there’s nothing like a good fireworks show to celebrate.

To have a companion medal to his Nobel prize President Obama ordered Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to award him the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service. You read that right, he wanted it he got it.

CBS news White House correspondent Mark Knoller sent out a tweet to his followers.


I’m sure Knoller was ecstatic over the award, he is after all a Democratic operative with a byline.

Knoller got called on his tweet immediately.



One of the things that I love about the U.S. military is the subtle way they can express their disgust. Take for instance the ceremony they just held for Obama where the metal was awarded and the ceremony that was held for outgoing President George W. Bush. Pay close attention to the seating.
