5. Trump was all pissy since he didn't get re-elected so


they gave him a big, shiny beautiful bowl!

You're right, it's a phony award probably given to him after his Saturday night rant to shut him up.

19. YES !!!!!!

Every bit as ludicrous as Trump giving limpballs limbaugh a freedom medal.

I detest these participation trophies that kids leagues give all the players. What a crock. Part of sportsmanship is learning how to not be a sore loser..............Amazingly absent, it seems, from a segment of today's athletes..........

7. Chamber pot.

Now he can be even lazier than before, something I never thought possible. He can rid himself of his many hamberders, then the pot can be removed, and the contents divided equally among his republican sycophants for their consumption. 💩

6. They invented an award...

for the worst pResident in U.S. history. Since Trump IS the republican party now, he invented an award to give himself. I'm sure he'll hang it on the wall, right next to his Time Magazine cover issue (another honor he decided to give himself). Next, Trump will start wearing a military uniform festooned with all of the medals he's earned from various Armed Forces campaigns around the world. I didn't think his ego could possibly inflate itself any further, but once again I underestimated how small a man he really is.

20. If he had won

I have no doubt we would now see him wearing one of those uniforms with all the medals just like third world dictatorships, and having massive military parades like he was denied.

Did everyone see where Putin, who has been president for decades, now has created a situation in Russia where he can stay president for the rest of his life? Don't think the Republicans aren't working towards that precise goal. They almost had it, and will do anything and everything in their power to make it so in the future. A Corporate Fascist Tyranny...........

24. Yeah, I saw Putin's slick move.

That's the type of government Donald wanted in the U.S. but Joe, Kamala, and about 7 million more voters decided it wasn't such a great idea. It's no mystery why Trump adored strongman dictators.

8. A whut...?

The National Republican Senatorial Committee actually has a ”Champion of Freedom” award?

Is this satire? Who gives a shit about a money-generating “award” from the NRSC?

And - it’s their first! And look who they gave it to. So not just the first, but also the last.

disenfranchised. In other words, it's all for THEM, the Republicans, to rule.

15. How appropriate!

In the 1990s, Rick Snott's company committed the largest Medicare fraud in history, and he pleaded the 5th Amendment over 75 times while giving a deposition. He walked away from that crime, just as "the previous guy" has done,... so far.

Scott started his hospital company, Columbia, in 1987 by purchasing two El Paso, Texas, hospitals. He quickly grew the company into one of the country's largest publicly traded hospital chains, and in 1994, merged Columbia with Tennessee-headquartered HCA.

In early 1997, federal agents revealed they were investigating the Columbia/HCA chain for, among other things, Medicare and Medicaid fraud. Allegations included that Columbia/HCA billed Medicare and Medicaid for tests that were not necessary or ordered by physicians, and that the hospital chain would perform one type of medical test but bill the federal government for a more expensive test or procedure. Agents seized records from facilities across the country including in Florida.

Scott resigned in July 1997. Scott said he wanted to fight the federal government accusations, but the corporate board of Columbia/HCA wanted to settle. In 2000, the company pleaded guilty to at least 14 corporate felonies and agreed to pay $840 million in criminal fines and civil damages and penalties.

The government settled a second series of similar claims with Columbia/HCA in 2002 for an additional $881 million. The total for the two fines was $1.7 billion.

16. Scott is such an embarrassment

First as governor and now in his current position. I can't figure out why he continues to be voted into offices.

17. Wasn't Scott convicted of Medicare fraud? And the Orange One settled a housing descrimination suit

in NYC with dear old KKK member Dad? So maybe this is a "best con of all time" tribute from one crook to another. They have both escaped justice and I find no comfort in that. It's hard to be proud of America when white criminals face no accountability and walk free while POC are locked up or die every freaking day for minimal transgressions and in some cases, just existing. "Liberty and Justice for all"??
