After eight years of magnanimous humility, servility and deferential governance toward his political opposition, President selfless awards himself the Medal of Distinguished Public Service. Thus, President Obama officially declares himself the greatest public servant during his own tenure.
No. Really, not kidding. He did.
This mirror-gazing malignant narcissist had Secretary Carter award HIS OWN BOSS with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.
Mark Knoller, the CBS White House correspondent, posted the photos to his own Twitter feed. Other Twitter posters were incredulous at the award. Some likened the award to a much maligned participation medal and others were mocking Obamas underling giving his own boss a medal.
Hillary got one from Podesta when he was Secretary of Defense.
I can’t even think up a snark for this. He is so ghetto. Idi Amin wannabe.
0bama ordered the medal awarded to himself. It has all the worth of a stolen penny sucker from a sweet shop. Har!
In the 50s and 60s, comics, editorial cartoons and even Mad Magazine would lampoon Soviet USSR politicians and generals with hundreds of ribbons and medals with a prominent large one with the word "Hero" on it.
What an embarrassing sorry joke this black doofus nut job turn out to be.
Looks like W similarly “awarded himself” a whole chest full of medals:
From what I can find, the “tradition” started with Bill Clinton.
All that’s missing from home now is a Colonel Ghaddafi military uniform and a sash
Everyday has been April Fools for the last 8 years.
I nominate him for the POS medal also.
“”In my 44 years of wearing this uniform, I have never seen the American public and our military as bonded in understanding, purpose and spirit as I do right now,” Mullen told Bush. “For this, Mr. President, we owe you our greatest gratitude.”
The difference being, the troops really did bond with G.W.B.
...Idi Amin wannabe.
Well, that one right there is quite good.
Don’t forget the gold framed sunglasses.
Un-freakin-believable! What narcissists! Obama, Clinton, and Kerry are 3 peas in a pod and deserve a special place in _ell for their self serving greed for undeserved, unearned medals and honors.
LOL. Funniest movie ever made! “Serpentine, Shelley, serpentine!”
The Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service is the highest award that is presented by the Secretary of Defense, to a private citizen, politician, non-career Federal employee, or foreign national. It is presented for exceptionally distinguished service of significance to the Department of Defense as a whole, or a DoD Component or function, where recognition at the component level would not be sufficient for the service rendered...
To be fair, this is a suck up by Ash Carter, as I can’t really think of what this asshat did that would be called “exceptionally distinguished service of significance to the Department of Defense “
