On Thursday, President Obama, during a farewell event for Joe Biden, surprised the VP by presenting him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom with Distinction. The veep was candid:
"I don’t deserve this," says Biden of the Presidential Medal, "but I know it came from the president’s heart." pic.twitter.com/vrS2YDPqJK

On the “awards” front, Fox News’ Brit Hume sees this administration going out as it came in:
BHO got Nobel prize at start of presidency before accomplishing anything. Biden got medal of freedom at end after accomplishing nothing.
