President Donald Trump has a … way with words.
The president, on Friday, introduced the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia‘s widow Maureen Scalia at the White House. She was there to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor, on behalf of her late husband.
First, Trump praised Scalia for being a principled justice who upheld the U.S. Constitution as intended by the Founding Fathers. Then, after recognizing all nine of the children the Scalias brought into this world, Trump said the following: “You were very busy. Wow.”
Then he paused. “I always knew I liked him,” Trump said.

Maybe Trump meant that their work/parenting schedule must have been insane, but that’s not how anyone interpreted this.

Has any other President talked about sex at a Medal of Freedom ceremony before? Just curious.
