Leftists attack Tiger Woods For Trump's Medal of Freedom
After President Donald Trump honored the golf star with the Presidential Medal of Freedom many progressives found it upsetting. Some of them don't look smart in their resentment though.
For instance, Economist Paul Krugman forgot that numerous actors, athletes, and entertainers have been the recipient of the MOF since it was first implemented saying “I’m old enough to remember when Presidential Medals of Freedom were given for showing courage and making sacrifices on behalf of the nation and the world. Tiger Woods … hits golf balls for money,” Krugman wrote.

Journalism professor Steven Beschloss assumed the only reason Trump gave Tiger the medal was for business connections between the two.
Word has it Trump gave a treasured medal of freedom to a golfer he wants to do business with. As worthy as Tiger might be, Trump found a way to undermine the value of this honor.— Steven Beschloss (@StevenBeschloss) May 6, 2019
Louisiana Democrat Rob Anderson slammed the award going to any golfer oblivious of the fact Obama granted the same medal to a golf player before.
Getting a Medal of Freedom for playing golf is like winning the Nobel Prize for doing laundry.— Rob Anderson for Louisiana (@RobAnderson2018) May 7, 2019
The list is far from being extensive, the plethora of such remarks indicates that many commentators are, at best, ideologically driven.
Tiger Woods is not only famous as a legendary golf talent, but he is also a great inspiration to Americans. Woods proves that one can rise up from private failings to regain excellence and become the best in the world again.
