WHAT A SURREAL DAY TO PICK UP a Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House. Hall of Fame golfers Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player are reportedly both supporters of President Trump. Babe Didrickson Zaharias, the other recipient, died in 1956.

From NPR:
The nation — and world — continued to reel, looking for answers after an angry and violent pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol on Wednesday....

Meanwhile, at the White House, the president prepared to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the nation's highest civilian honor – to three professional golfers: Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player and the late Babe Zaharias.

It's the kind of event that Trump, in normal times, would invite White House reporters to witness. But there was no expectation that would happen on Thursday.

Instead, there were rumblings of staff resignations, with more potentially on the way.​

Gary Player's Twitter account is currently silent regarding the medal ceremony. The ANNIKA Foundation tweeted yesterday.​
