President Obama Just Received This Incredible Award That Trump Will NEVER Get



It has just been announced that former President Barack Obama will be the recipient of the Centennial John F. Kennedy Profile of Courage Award. The award was established by the Kennedy family in 1989, but this years award is especially significant because it coincides with what would be JFKs one-hundredth birthday.
The award is named after Kennedys 1957 Pulitzer Prize winner Profiles of Courage. The book documents eight senators in American history who prioritized principle over politics. The Profile of Courage award is presented annually to a lawmaker who embodies the spirit of those legendary eight senators.

This year a bipartisan committee of fourteen jurors unanimously agreed that Obama is the most worthy candidate. In the past, each recipient has been awarded on the basis of a particular decision that they made. For the centennial, the board decided to do something different. Obama is not honored for any one action. Instead, his entire career is recognized as having defied political interests and prioritized America and its people over all else.

On May 7, JFKs daughter and former ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and her son, Jack Schlossberg, will present the prize to Obama in Boston. Obama will deliver a speech at the ceremony which is sure to be a beautiful tribute to the life and death of President Kennedy.
We agree with the committee that no one other than President Obama could fulfill the important role of accepting the centennial award in honor of the fallen President. Congratulations, President Obama. We supported your presidency from day one and we will continue to support your legacy.

2. Congratulations Mr. President.

However ever since I have seen Yes Minister I think of this scene where Sir Humphrey talks about what a "courageous policy means"

3. I'm guessing Trump will never receive a Nobel Peace Prize, either!

So glad to hear that Obama received this award, especially with the timing coinciding with the 100th anniversary of JFK's birth.

9. In order to keep what's left of my sanity and maintain decent blood pressure levels

I have to go to a fantasy world for a few hours each day where Obama is still the President. It's so much easier to breathe over there.

18. Excellent!

But a small nitpick: it's "Profiles in Courage".

Cannot wait for this speech!

Eat it, Trump.
