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.

ACQUITTED FOREVER: President Trump is Found ‘Not Guilty’ by the Senate and Will Remain in Office Following Impeachment
The Democrats wasted the public’s time and money with this charade.
President Donald Trump has been officially acquitted of two articles of impeachment and will not be convicted following his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He will remain in office despite the best efforts of the Democrats.
“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein, it is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts said to conclude the trial.

On the first article of impeachment pertaining to abuse of power, 48 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 52 determined he was not guilty. On the second article of impeachment pertaining to obstruction of Congress, 47 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 53 determined he was not guilty.
The Senate would have had to garner a supermajority of 67 Senators to determine that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses. However, not even a simple majority could come to that conclusion even though the Democrats threw everything but the kitchen sink in an attempt to convince them.
“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of the country,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “A man without character or ethical compass will not find his way.”
The Democrat-led proceedings ended up being a massive waste of time at great expense to the U.S. taxpayer, as Trump and his Republican supporters said they would be.
“The president has done nothing wrong, and these types of impeachments must end,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone about the witch hunt that occurred.
With impeachment now behind him, President Trump can focus on enacting his agenda and winning re-election in November.
