Trump Gives Tiger Woods The Medal Of Freedom – Tigers Reaction Is PURE GOLD

Written by Wes Walker on May 7, 2019

Don’t worry, the ‘resist’ crowd will find some way to spin this story into a negative one.

A line from Batman Begins may be the best way to set this story up:

“Why do we fall, Master Wayne? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up.”

That’s Tiger’s story in a nutshell. And it was one for which the President of the United States just gave the highest recognition he can give to a civilian.

Trending: Trump SLAMS Fox News – Do You Agree With His Critique?

The first African-American to win the Masters and the youngest golfer to take the title, Woods won his first major tournament in 11 years in April after suffering severe injuries that threatened to end his career forever.

Woods cried at the White House as he talked about his late father and spoke about his ‘amazing’ comeback this year and the’unbelievable experience’ of winning the award in front his mother, children, caddy, girlfriend Erica Herman, the president and first lady Melania Trump.

‘You’ve seen the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, and I would not be in this position without all your help,’ he told his family. ‘I’ve battled, I try to hang in there, and I’ve tried to come back and play the great game of golf again.’

He worked his ass off to become the greatest young golfer the world had ever seen. One of the most revered names in athletics, his was spoken with the same gravitas that Michael Jordan’s and Wayne Gretzky’s were in their respective sports.

Then the wheels fell off. Messy divorce. Career-threatening injury. Public humiliation. Sponsors cut ties.

He could have thrown in the towel and given up. It would have been easy. It was almost expected of him. He could explain it away with his injuries and quietly become a has-been.

That would have been the easy way out. But he did exactly what our own Warriors and Wildmen tell people in a situation like his. Get back up, dust yourself off, and start over.

The falling doesn’t define you, it’s whether you get back up again after the stumble. It was a long and difficult climb, but he got back on track, an older and wiser man for the experience.

The citation for the award said that Woods was being honored for the 5 Masters tournament’s he’s won, beginning in 1997 when he became the first black man and the youngest golfer ever to clinch the title. He won again in 2019, becoming the second-oldest champ.

President Trump also noted that Woods has 81 PGA tour victories under his belt – one victory behind the all-time record.

Trump also had another statistic he wanted to point out:  he said that Woods’ victory in April was ‘record-setting ratings’ for a Masters tournament.

‘We are in the presence of a true legend, an extraordinary athlete who has transformed golf and achieved new levels of dominance,’ he said.

He hailed Woods, whom he’s relied on to boost his own popularity throughout his own career, as an entrepreneur and and philanthropist, as well as an athlete.

‘That’s how I originally met Tiger,’ the former real estate mogul acknowledged in the Rose Garden on Monday evening.

The President went on…

The president said that Woods, 43, is ‘one of the greatest athletes in the history of sports’ and has inspired people worldwide with his barrier-breaking victories, capped by a comeback at this year’s tournament.

‘He’s also a great person. He’s a great guy,’ Trump declared. ‘He inspired millions of young Americans with his thrilling wire-to-wire victories. Tiger Woods is a global symbol of american excellence, devotion, and drive.’

If there’s one thing the President truly respects, it’s a tenacious fighter.

Standing up to the bullies was the one response the Left’s political machine was completely unprepared for… and Trump knew it. It’s why we elected him in the first place.

It inspired latest in the MAGA series of our very own Resident Artist, Doug Giles capturing that same defiant spirit perfectly.
