President Donald Trump claimed to laughter on Wednesday that he sought to give himself a Medal of Honor, but decided not to after being counseled against the move by aides. The offhand remark from the president came during his address to the 75th annual national convention of American Veterans, a volunteer-led veterans service organization also known as AMVETS.

Even if Pres Trump were just joking when he said that...

Why in the world does he always have to make occasions, which are supposed to celebrate others, about himself? CAn't he ever speak publicly without praising himself?

Sniper and the rest of the Fox News gang wet their pants when Obama used spicy mustard.

They'd have done a lot more if Obama had joked about something like this.
