President Obama has rejected the notion of revoking Bill Cosby’s Presidential Medal of Freedom. The comedian, accused of sexual misconduct with more than two dozen women, admitted under oath in 2005 that he drugged women with whom he intended to have sex.
“There’s no precedent for revoking a medal,” the president stated. “We don’t have that mechanism.”
That’s funny, I don’t recall there being any “precedent” for revoking the existing definition of marriage, either, but we got that done! We’ve recently revoked a former nation’s/regions flag, as well. These two “achievements” are themselves part of the on-going revocation of the Constitution. And common sense.
Mr. President, you yourself have repeatedly side-stepped congress and ruled by executive fiat.
Yes, Mr. President, you and your base have “accomplished” many things for which there was no precedent, no mechanism.
