Fox News is reporting that Hillary Clinton will receive an award from Harvard that recognizes her impact on society, but it seems like President Donald Trump will get the last laugh. While Clinton receives an award from a top tier college, it’s Trump who is most likely to receive a much more prestigious award as so many people believe he should receive the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing North and South Korea together after so many years.
Hillary Clinton critics immediately rushed to the comment sections and social media to flood the gates with their disdain for her receiving any sort of award, especially one that suggests that she had a positive impact on society. Some critics believe Harvard is giving her the award simply as a means to get on President Trump’s nerves, but he likely doesn’t know or care about what awards Hillary receives. Of course, that’s mere speculation, but it’s highly likely to be true.
Once Hillary receives the award and is pressed back into the American spotlight, it will only be a matter of time until social media erupts with more commentary on the situation. In particular, the commentary from those who dislike Hillary might ask if she stumbled on the way to picking up her award, a reference to all the times that Hillary trips over her own feet in public. Or perhaps the social media comments might ask if she coughed on the award a few times before receiving it.

“Hillary Clinton will receive Harvard’s prestigious Radcliffe Medal for her “transformative impact on society,” according to the Ivy League university.
She will receive the award Friday as part of the school’s graduation-week activities.
Clinton is a former first lady, New York senator, secretary of State and two-time Democratic presidential candidate. Her 2016 White House bid was damaged severely by an FBI investigation into her use of private email servers to send and receive classified information while at the State Department.
Organizers at Harvard say Clinton was chosen for the award because she’s a “champion for human rights,” a “skilled legislator” and “an advocate of American leadership” on the world stage.
Former Secretary of State and 2001 Radcliffe Medalist Madeleine Albright will deliver a personal tribute to Clinton, and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey will take part in a keynote conversation with her Friday at the school in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Previous medal recipients include Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and former Sen. Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C.”
Clinton may have achieved some honorable positions, but her opposition will likely question if she used her positions for honorable actions. Clinton, who once spoke to a crowd about equality while wearing a shirt that cost around $14,000, has found herself wrapped in her own controversies that many modern day Americans cannot forgive. The issue with Benghazi and being married to an alleged predator are two of her main concerns. She also has the issue with the missing emails, private servers, and other issues that have found her at the helm of scrutiny.
Those who voted for Trump may brush this off as no big deal while they wait for Donald to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump’s accomplishments in his short time as President seem to vastly outweigh whatever Hillary Clinton may have done. Trump also doesn’t have anywhere near the amount of controversy surrounding him as she does. Some of Trump’s critics tried dragging him under the bus by exposing an old recording where he joked about grabbing a woman by the privates, however that appeared to be the only dirt that people could bring upon the now President.
If Hillary receives the award in person, then be prepared for a fun time as the comment sections will get hilarious.
