    Medal of Honor recipient: Trump allowing team to be part of ceremony 'meant so much'

    Medal of Honor recipient: Trump allowing team to be part of ceremony '''meant so much''' | Fox News

    An Iraq war veteran who was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Trump said Friday the experience was "unbelievable" and thanked the president for allowing him to include his team in the emotional ceremony.


    Former U.S. Army Staff Sgt. David Bellavia is the first living Iraq war veteran to be given the prestigious honor after he saved his platoon during the Second Battle of Fallujah in 2004, considered the bloodiest conflict for United States troops since the Vietnam War.

    During an appearance on "Fox & Friends" on Friday, Bellavia said it was "unbelievable" that he was given the Medal of Honor for his service.
    "You feel awkward and uncomfortable," he said, in regard to having the spotlight on him for his military valor. "But my commander-in-chief allowed me to bring my soldiers on that stage and that meant so much to them.
    Nice story about a guy getting positive recognition.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS. #MAGA #WalkAway

    It was an A+ move by Trump. Great job clearing the bar of basic human decency every once in a while.
    You don't win votes from shaming people with actual convictions.

    Bring his unit up was for him, and was a great move.

    It was a great move, but it's also an obvious one that is a real "no duh" move. I'm not going to grade the President on a curve because he's generally a terrible person.

    If you grade Obama on the Bell Curve he actually looks better also.

    I’m guessing this caused you actual physical pain.

    Obama is miles and leagues a better person than Trump. It's not even a matter of debate. Most people who haven't sexually assaulted and harassed women are better than Trump.

    Democrat song of praise:

    O Obama how we adore thee
    Thou are beautiful in all thy ways
    Thou has rescued the gay from the wicked hateful Bible believer
    Thou hast protected abortion from those seeking to defend the lives of babies
    Thou has shamed cops and servicemen
    Thou hast honored America's enemies and given aid to the enemy
    Thou hast delivered faithful party members from investigators
    Thou has driven God and Christianity out of public
    Thou hast shut down national observances of prayer and thanksgiving to God
    And these are just the beginnings of thy great works
    We owe thee our hearts, our lives, our undying devotion, and our obedience to thy causes.
