After eight years of failure and amid a petulant, unprecedented push to obstruct the presidential transition, President Obama decided it was a good idea to have Defense Secretary Ash Carter give him the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service on Wednesday.
Secretary Carter awarded his 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.
Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.
Obama had the gall to claim that a smooth transition was important in front of the military members in attendance after he has worked overtime to make it difficult for President-elect Donald Trump: “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity.”
You know, this is probably a symptom of leftist derangement syndrome. They really believe that it’s their way or the highway so he probably does believe that a smooth transition means making sure his failed policies are difficult to undo.
And that’s why the American people repudiated Obama and his leftist cronies in 2016 …
The mainstream media was there to commemorate the barftastic event as CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted: “Defense Secy Carter presents Pres Obama with Dept of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.”
