Trump Awards Elvis Presley Medal of Freedom. Leftists Cry Racism
Recently, the Donald awarded this year's Presidential Medals of Freedom. Among the recipients was one Elvis Aaron Presley. You know, "The King." Takin' care of business. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
As usual, Trump's decision has lefties all shook up.
President Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seven Americans on Friday, including the late rock star Elvis Presley, though even that gesture is coming under fire from liberals.
Trump honored Presley, baseball legend Babe Ruth, former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, philanthropist Miriam Adelson, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, football star Alan Page, and Hall-of-Fame quarterback Roger Staubach.
Still, some have accused Trump of racism for honoring Presley, long known as the "King of Rock and Roll."
The Washington Post’s pop culture critic Chris Richards called Trump’s move “a little nod to the good old days, back when black visionaries could invent rock-and-roll, but only a white man could become the king.”
Yep, when your name is Trump, lefties can't help pulling the race card on you. Liking Elvis is now racist.
I guess we're supposed to ignore Elvis' contributions to music and American culture because he was the "wrong" hue. "Sure, he sang 'Love Me Tender,' but Chuck Berry did rock n' roll first. That makes Elvis a cultural-appropriating racist ninnymuggins. Which means Trump is a racist for giving him a medal." Nope.
Let's see here Algebra is racist. Grammar too. Now Elvis. I think I'm starting to see a pattern forming Basically, if leftists hate it, it's racist. It's not enough for them to dislike something. Nope, it has to be a super duper top secret covert racist thing. Because reasons.
Crying the R-word carries virtually no weight anymore. Pretty much everything is a "dog whistle" for white supremacy. Pretty soon, if they wish to stay relevant, these lefties are gonna have to come up with a new cliche to overplay.
