Trump praises Antonin Scalia’s sex life at Medal of Freedom ceremony
President Donald Trump on Friday honored American heroes (and the wife of Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson), in a ceremony for the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Trump bestowed the honor—which can be awarded to civilians who have made “meritorious contributions” to the United States—upon Babe Ruth, Elvis Presley, Roger Staubauch, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Miriam Adelson, Alan Page, and the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
In a release for the ceremony, Trump said Scalia was “one of the greatest Supreme Court justices in American history” who “never backed down from the bedrock proposition that the Constitution ‘means and will always mean what it meant when it was adopted.’”
But during the ceremony, Trump didn’t just allude to his strict constitutionalism. Trump also praised Scalia’s strong concupiscence. While reading the names of Scalia’s nine children, he turned to Scalia’s wife.
“You were very busy, wow,” the president said. “Wow. I always knew I liked him.”
The late Antonin Scalia: Supreme Court Justice, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, and person who the president is proud of for fucking a lot.
