We will never get another president like obama
Olle Forsberg
Announcer: "To present the Medal of Freedom, Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome - The President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump!" Trump: "It's just awesome, this prize, I'll tell you that much, and I've seen some nice prizes in my time, believe me, I've seen the best prizes. I own them, most of the greatest prizes. I know all the good prizes, and if I haven't got a prize, it's probably overrated and stupid. I ran this whole Miss America award show, and I'll tell ya this, bitches love awards, amirite? Yeah, you give them a prize and they'll do anything ya want, believe me, I know the best bitches, they'll do anything."
Robert Deniro, Bill Gates, Tom Hanks, Michael Jordan, Barbara Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Robert Redford, Ellen Degenres, Diana Ross and Barack Obama altogether is probably the biggest group of talented people ever assembled in one room.
