One day after protesters wreaked havoc on Capitol Hill leaving who ever is claiming to be in charge to pick up the pieces President Trump spent the day talking about one of his favorite things: golf.

In a closed door ceremony in the East Room of the White House the president awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 3 professional golfers, retired starts Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player as well as Babe Didrikson Zaharias, who died over sixty years ago.

Player and Sorenstam were meant to receive their awards in March but the event had to be rescheduled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

While the event us usually open to the press there were none present on Thursday most likely due to the events that shook the nation just one day before.

The timing of this event is unusual given that not even 24 hours before four people died after the Capitol Building was invaded by angry Trump supporters.

Player’s son, Marc, was strongly against his father accepting the award and expressed his concerns in a tweet.

“I wish my father would simply & politely decline this ‘award’ at this time,” he wrote.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the nation’s highest civilian honor one can receive. According to the White House the award is given to those “who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”

Other golfers to receive the award are Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Charlie Sifford, and Tiger Woods.
