Family members of recipients and senior Obama administration officials surrounded the stage where the honorees sat, laughing as the president discussed the most notable accomplishments of each honoree.
"Ellen counters what too often divides us," Obama said of DeGeneres, a gay comedian who he commended for coming out on such a public stage nearly 20 years ago.
The president recognized NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabber for standing up for his Muslim faith "when it wasn't easy and it wasn't popular."

Leave it to this scumbag Sotoero to demean this ceremony. What a true Piece of S___. I honestly hate this man.
I’d say these days Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is showing more bravery by being a Conservative.
Like Participation awards.
Marxist Muslim jackass in Chief.
What a cocky punk. Thank God he is now in our rear view mirror. What a disaster for America.
Overturn EVERYTHING, Mr. President-elect. Please overturn everything.
Medal inflation to placate the loyal, politically correct sycophants. Any list of Medal of Freedom recipients should have an asterix next to those issued by Obama.
Kinda like Obama receiving Peace Medal.
I’m bummed out that I didn’t even get a participation medal for my incisive FR posts.
Now, it’s as watered-down and worthless as the Nobel Peace Prize.
Only 58 more days!
Dear Kareem, please go back to the hellhole whence you came.
Yep. If you are black or Muslim, you automatically get one.
Add this to his commuting the sentences of more felons than any other president by leaps and bounds.
What an embarrassment. That is what happens when a dedicated enemy of America takes charge. Obama fulfilled hid promise to do everything he could to destroy America.
Another aspect of his legacy: the medal of freedom now as meaningless as the Nobel Peace prize.
And if you act now, you’ll receive a shiny Medal of Freedom! Just pay separate shipping and handling.
About 30% of the Medal of Freedom awards during the past 8 years were legitimate. BO devalued every aspect of America that he touched in his ruinous two terms.
Traitorobama has devalued the Medal of Freedom to the prize in a Cracker Jack box.
A trophy for every child.
What did Bruce Springsteen do to get one of these?
Rich Leftists giving awards to other Rich Leftists in the Rich Leftist Bubble.
I’m hoping Pres Trump gives awards to some REAL American Heroes... Veterans, Police Officers, Volunteers, etc...
The award is greatly diminished.
