In another move of pride and arrogance, like that of a dictator, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, the usurper-in-chief, was awarded the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
Defense Secretary Ash Carter presented the award to Obama on Wednesday during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the Obama held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.
Of course, Carter said the medal was merely a “token of appreciation” for Obama’s service as commander-in-chief.

Obama met with military leaders for the last time on Wednesday and talked about how there needed to be a smooth transition to incoming President Donald Trump.
“We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity,” Obama said. “We are doing everything we can to make sure that the next president will benefit from the same kinds of outstanding advice and service that these people around the table have provided me.”
Obama’s statements are laughable as he just made things more difficult over the past week for the Trump transition team.
Following that meeting, Obama was awarded the medal and said that he had “no greater privilege and no greater honor” than to serve as the commander-in-chief.
If that was not nauseating enough, he added, “As I reflect on the challenges we have faced together and on those to come, I believe that one of the greatest tasks before our armed forces is to retain the high confidence that the American people rightly place in you. We must never hesitate to act when necessary to defend our nation, but we must also never rush into war because sending you into harm’s way should be a last and not first resort.”
