When he was in office, Donald Trump made a mockery of the Medal of Freedom. He gave the award to top sycophants Devin Nunes and Jim Jordan. Lou Holtz was honored with one after questioning Joe Biden’s Catholicism. And controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh received the medal during Trump’s final State of the Nation address.And if the 45th president was still in office, it may be even worse. On his Instagram page on Monday, Donald Trump Jr. shared a photoshopped picture of Trump awarding Kyle Rittenhouse with the Medal of Freedom.
Trump shared a pic of the two men, simply posting, “2024? Who knows.”

Rittenhouse’s lawyer Mark Richards wants people like Trump Jr. to stop talking about his former client. He remarked, “They’re raising money on it and you have all these Republican congressmen saying come work for me. They want to trade on his celebrity and I think it’s disgusting.”
When asked specifically about Trump Jr., Richards said, “He’s an idiot. I don’t have to expand on that because it speaks for itself.”
