On Monday, President Donald Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to former New York Yankee and five-time World Series champ Mariano Rivera.
This afternoon at the @WhiteHouse, it was my great honor to present our nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to American baseball legend @MarianoRivera. Congratulations on this extraordinary achievement, Mo! https://t.co/nzOeqFNb3C

The best part of the ceremony, of course, was the White House playing Rivera’s walk-up music, “Enter Sandman” by Metallica, as he stepped forward to receive his medal. C-SPAN was on it:

Something tells me that Metallica is going to tell Trump to never walk out to their song again

And something tells us the White House will tell Metallica, “Too bad.”

Not a Yankees fan. Not a Yankees hater either. This is freaking sweet.

I honestly thought @CarpeDonktum somehow got a hold of CSPAN's twitter and posted this ?
— Alan (@ComradexSnarky) September 16, 2019
Yes, @realDonaldTrump walked out to Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' today (because it was a ceremony for Mariano Rivera and that's Rivera's nickname).

I bet the Spanish-speaking Irish boy will throw away his Metallica memorabilia after this. ???

Weird: Media remarkably unconcerned with Obama partying with former Presidential Medal of Freedom winners on a billionaire's yacht in Tahiti https://t.co/6cQoeiLedn
