SHAKING: AOC Says Trump ‘Cheapens’ the Medal of Freedom by Giving it to ‘Virulent Racist’ Rush Limbaugh

Ocasio-Cortez is deeply troubled by Trump’s touching and heartfelt gesture.

President Donald Trump gave conservative icon Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom last night during the State of the Union (SOTU) address, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is not happy about it.

The firey latinx ‘Squad’ member, who skipped the SOTU proceedings out of anger toward Trump, voiced her displeasure about Trump bestowing Limbaugh with the prestigious honor.

“[T]he Presidential Medal of Freedom is an extraordinarily sacred award,” she said during an Instagram Live appearance. “We’re talking about putting someone on the same level as Rosa Parks, you know, for example in terms of their contributions to American progress.”

“Rush Limbaugh is a virulent racist, but even just on top of that, to do it in the middle of a State of the Union and not even dignify it with its own ceremony as it has — there’s all sorts of norms that are being violated, not just for people’s humanity, but also it truly just cheapens the value of it,” she added.

Trump gave Limbaugh the award shortly after he announced his diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer on his radio show. There has since been an outpouring of love and support from conservatives nationwide, who are putting the talk radio giant in their prayers.

“Here tonight is a special man, someone beloved by millions of Americans, who just received a stage 4 advanced cancer diagnosis. This is not good news, but what is good news is that he is the greatest fighter and winner that you will ever meet,” Trump said during his remarks.

Ocasio-Cortez was far from the only liberal who was triggered by Limbaugh receiving the award. Many are seething that Limbaugh, who has been the bane of their existence for decades, is now a recipient one of the nation’s highest honors.

“Few people have done more to degrade our political discourse than Rush Limbaugh,” wrote Matt Duss, a Bernie Sanders foreign policy advisor, in a tweet. “It’s an absolute disgrace that he’s being honored here.”

“Having Melania present Rush Limbaugh with a Presidential Medal of Freedom (!) in the midst of #SOTU is both disgusting and pure right-wing genius,” wrote far-left Intercept journalist Mehdi Hasan in a tweet.

“He was trying to make appeals to the African-American community,” said notorious CNN fake news man Jim Acosta. “It can’t be forgotten he was awarding the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, who has a history of making derogatory comments about African-Americans. So I think, you know, overall it’s a wash.”

Nevertheless, Limbaugh’s name is now etched in the history books among the greatest Americans who have ever lived, and there is nothing triggered liberals like Ocasio-Cortez can do to change that.

Defense Secretary Confirms White House Will Let Cities Burn and Let Mobs Loot Without Military Intervention

The White House seems content to let America burn on their watch.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper has made it clear that the Trump administration will not be intervening with federal forces to put down mobs in cities that have been on fire for days amidst leftist riots and strife.

Esper started his press conference by bemoaning the “horrible crime” committed by police officer Derek Chauvin against serial felon George Floyd in the Minneapolis streets and said all the cops involved should “be held accountable for his murder.”

“With great sympathy, I want to extend the deepest of condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd, for me and the department,” Esper said during a briefing at the Pentagon.

“Racism is real in America, and we must all do our very best to recognize it, to confront it, and to eradicate it,” he added, echoing Black Lives Matter talking points.

Esper made it clear that there are no plans to unleash military on the streets to restore order. He claimed that the emergency going on right now did not indicate the need for this kind of response. Esper is apparently content to let the streets burn, property be destroyed, and law enforcement to be run down in the streets like dogs without intervening.

“The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now,” Esper said.

Esper should tell that to retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, the 77-year-old man who was gunned down in the streets by rioting savages on Tuesday morning.

Big League Politics reported:

Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.

His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.

President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.

Esper should also tell that this situation is not “urgent and dire” to the family of the U.S. Marshal that was shot in the head by a thug and later pronounced deceased during Las Vegas riots on Monday.

Big League Politics reported:

8 News Now Metro of Las Vegas is reporting that a U.S. Marshal has been killed after being shot in the head during Monday’s race riots.

Reports emerged late on Monday that a U.S. Marshal had been killed during a shootout with an armed rioter near the city’s federal courthouse.

8 News Now originally reported that the marshal had been shot in the head. The shooting death appeared to take place after the evening’s protest and riot activities had been contained by law enforcement, perhaps suggesting that an armed rioter intentionally targeted law enforcement in the shooting.

Because of deep state bureaucrats like Esper, President Trump is watching his country descend into chaos and anarchy while doing little other than offering bluster as his nation burns.
