Trump To Also Give Limbaugh The Presidential Medal Of Oxycontin And Racism

WASHINGTON., D.C. — Last night, President Donald J. Trump delivered his third, and potentially final State of the Union address on the very same floor of the House of Representatives that voted just a few weeks ago to pass two articles of impeachment against him. While it seems inevitable that the Republican majority in the Senate will get Trump the acquittal he desperately wants and needs on the impeachment articles, the State of the Union address was not without its moments of political theater and high drama. President Trump refused to shake Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s hand before delivering his speech, and in turn she returned the insult by tearing up his speech when he’d concluded, only a mere few feet from his turned back.

Another moment of high drama came when Trump gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to arch conservative commentator and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. While the move looked to many to come right out of a reality-TV show, something the president is quite accustomed to producing, this morning President Trump told reporters he wasn’t done giving the radio host awards or medals. In fact, Trump announced the creation of a brand new presidential medal, which he says will be named in Limbaugh’s honor, and Rush will receive the inaugural award at an upcoming dinner hosted at Mar-a-Lago.

“I am bigly honored and proud to announce that I will be giving him the Rush Limbaugh Presidential Medal of Oxycontin and Racism, sometime in the coming weeks,” Trump shouted at reporters as he paced around the White House lawn. “If you can name me one person — one single, solitary person — who has done more for the cause of Oxycontin addiction or racism, I would be shocked!”

Trump said he “feels a certain bond” with Limbaugh.

1. From what I remember, Rush was filling prescriptions that would have had him taking

around 35 oxycontin per day. That's way over what anyone, even a serious addict would use. Any average dude would have been prosecuted for possession with intent to deliver. Usually right-wingers are all for nailing someone for dealing any time they can find a way.
