BFFs reunited Monday when Donald Trump gave his business partner an undeserving Presidential Medal of Freedom to Tiger Woods. As New York Times writer Paul Krogman said, “I’m old enough to remember when Presidential Medals of Freedom were given for showing courage and making sacrifices on behalf of the nation and the world. Tiger Woods … hits golf balls for money.”
Welp, those days are over.
who doesn’t identify as Black and has called himself “Cablinasian” (according to him, it means Blend of Caucasian, Black, American Indian and Asian),
Tiger Woods, won his fifth Masters title last month, which was his first time winning a championship after 11 years. Trump immediately thought this was the perfect moment to give him the Presidential Medal of Freedom that is usually awarded to “meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”
It’s unclear what Woods’ cultural contribution is, especially from someone who doesn’t identify as Black — he calls himself “Cablinasian,” according to him, means a blend of Caucasian, Black, American Indian and Asian.
What is clear is that The 43-year-old golfer has a massive business deal with Trump for a golf course in Dubai, which began in 2014. According to Trump.com, “The magnificent 18-hole Championship-standard course will be designed by the iconic golfing superstar Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods Design will bring the golfer’s design expertise and worldwide playing experience to the development, and, when coupled with the Trump brand standard of excellence, will create a new luxury benchmark for golf in the Middle East.”
Jordan Libowitz, communications director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a left-leaning public policy group, told Yahoo, “You have to ask whether it’s his true belief Tiger Woods deserves this award or whether he’s doing it to help his business.”
Of course, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, babbled, “The president thinks Tiger is not only a tremendous athlete but also has a great comeback story. He is undisputed as one of the great golfers in history and has broken barriers in the game.”
Trump clearly also thinks Tiger is good for business. Moreover, how vile that Woods would exploit himself for this racist president and once said about people who are critical of Trump, “We all must respect the office.”
