President Obama to receive Kennedy Library 'Profiles In Courage' Award this Sunday.

It is worth noting that the Rancid Slice of Velveeta in the Oval Office will NEVER be considered for such an honor. Take a listen to young Jack Schlossberg in this video. I'm hopeful he has a bright future ahead of him in public service.

President Trump probably can't stop it, like that medal Argentina wants to award to President Carter, but I'd bet that he kicks up a Twitter tantrum to draw attention away from President Obama's award. That will be diversion enough for the popular media to pay attention to Trump and ignore Obama. They won't have any choice!

soon enough. Probably will keep him up at night enraged with jealousy knowing how O is still as popular as ever even now that he's out of office.

He will probably be announcing his Andrew Jackson greatness award. Which will be presented to him personally by Andrew Jackson. Then they will discuss how to stop the Civil War.

Jack Schlossberg I started praying I would live long enough to vote for him for President. Read his wiki page. He was raised to have the heart of a public servant. His parents should be so proud.

Sorry, I'm gushing, but he is just such a handsome, articulate, intelligent young man. I really do hope he decides to go into public service one day. We could use someone like him.

He will start Harvard law in the fall. And he did his undergrad degree in HISTORY. This is the level of quality I expect in public servants. I want them well read, well educated with a life that exemplifies the heart of a public servant.

I think so many people in Congress and of course the WH are unqualified to serve.

Hi xxx,

Thanks for this. Pretty cool, huh? Our names will be in the wall at the JFK library together. Hope you are well.

Doesn't even come close to how amazing it is to be honored this way. We already know that PBO is incredible and your friend, Jennifer, must be as well.

.... pushed the false story that she was working w/ACORN to rig OH's elections. She should
have been our second democratic senator but the "good old boy" network among the state
democrats sank her in the primary and now we have Rob Portman because of their actions

the naysayers can sit and spin on their optics. The Kennedy Library also gave this award to Gerald Ford. It has been a bipartisan honor in the past. However, IMO, it is a total FU to the ManBaby in the WH. I hear that PBO will give a speech at the ceremony. All the MSM will cover it and Dumpy will have a meltdown. Can't wait!!

making a good living...not even when he's not their public servant any more. You freaking KNOW its about that. What's he supposed to do? Be a greeter at the Walmart? He earned every damned dollar of what he's being paid and more. AND, he's giving half of it away. No deplorable would give 2 million dollars away. They'd keep it all and still bitch about PBO's paycheck.
