Letter: Awarding Presidential Medal of Freedom to Limbaugh is a joke

To the Editor:

President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech was full of his usual lies and exaggerations, but one thing stood out to me as showing us who Trump really is.

It was his awarding the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh. An argument can be made that Limbaugh has been the most divisive figure politically in the past 30 years. His vile comments could fill a book; and this is who our president thinks deserves the highest civilian honor in the land?

This is an insult to all the previous recipients who made the world a better place rather than trying to tear it apart.
