That is why North America and Europe are getting swamped with immigrants.
Instead of growing some balls and fixing their own country they come to ours.

Elvis served and they made him a Military Entertainer if not mistaken.

Elvis's main problem, (as I see it), was that his handlers probably got tired of putting up with his later life BS and let him kill himself!!

I have a good idea for you. Why don't you check out how many musicians have been awarded the "Medal of Freedom" by our last president and presidents before him. Might be educational for you.

Once again the snowtards are showing their lack of knowledge.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is awarded by the President of the United States "for especially meritorious contribution to (1) the security or national interests of the United States, or (2) world peace, or (3) cultural or other significant public or private endeavors"; it is awarded to individuals selected by the President or recommended to him by the Distinguished Civilian Service Awards Board.
Numerous musicians were received the Medal from Obama, including Loretta Lynn, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor and many others. The only question I have is why didn't Elvis receive it sooner. I also believe Ray Charles and Chuck Berry should be chosen. In addition to being pioneers in music there were also pioneers in civil rights.

Obama also awarded the Medal of Freedom to George H Bush.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

So tell ME first, since you are the original poster, which "wrongs" you perceive so we can all be educated. Or is this just about attack Trump no matter what?

You are implying(?) that other "musicians" being appointed in previous administrations is justification enough for this one to appoint "Elvis", a confirmed drug abuser who had nearly everything and OD on his bathroom floor, his life in tatters, not IMO, " Freedom of Medal" worthy material. So I don't really care what other "wrongs" exist or do not, but this one, as a musician or not, is apparently just deflection theater, by a narcissistic POTUS needing a get out jail pass by his supporters, by crowning the deceased "king" with a medal. #-o

Is it a slow day in Mom's basement?
IT's called precedence.
Nothing more, nothing less. Trump did nothing new or incorrect here.
If one is so inclined as some seem to be here I am sure we can dig a wrong on anyone that got that award in the past.
