A Rush to misjudgment

President Trump paused the State of the Union address Tuesday night to have the first lady bestow the Presidential Medal of Freedom on radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.

Since when do we reward a person with a high honor for using his media access to openly mock people with disabilities and persist in spreading false narratives about the legitimacy of a popularly elected president?

Oh, wait … I remember now.
