Rick Scott Ripped After Saying He Gave Trump 'Freedom' Trophy Because 'He Worked Hard'
"You gave the award after he spread the lies about the election," George Stephanopoulos said.

Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott was criticized on social media Saturday after he said he gave former President Donald Trump the National Republican Senatorial Committee's (NRSC) Champion of Freedom award because he "worked hard."

© Stefani Reynolds/Getty Images Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) speaks to reporters following Senate Republican Policy luncheons at the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on April 13, 2021 in Washington, DC.

Scott, chairman of the NRSC, awarded Trump with the inaugural award during a GOP donor repeat at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach earlier this month. In a statement, the NRSC said the "award is presented to conservative leaders who have worked tirelessly to create good jobs, protect the values that make our country great, and stop the Democrats' socialist agenda."

At the time, Democrats and critics of the divisive ex-president quickly took to Twitter to slam Republicans for giving Trump the award, with some calling it a "participation trophy."

In an ABC This Week interview on Saturday, host George Stephanopoulos grilled Scott about the award. "You recently gave Trump a 'Champion of Freedom' award, despite the fact he continues to spread lies about the election and insurrection. Doesn't that endorse that kind of behavior?"

"I gave him the award for the right reasons," Scott responded. "He worked on border security ... he worked on holding Xi [Jinping] in China accountable, the Castro regime accountable, [Nicolas] Maduro accountable, helping Israel, got the Abraham accords done, he worked hard. Every president I know would like to get more things accomplished but he did some things that prior presidents have not gotten done."

"You gave the award after he spread the lies about the election," Stephanopoulos said.

'Rick Scott' began trending on Twitter after the interview aired as critics opposed his remarks. Some people also slammed the network for giving the senator a platform.

Joseph Robertson, executive director of Citizens' Climate International, tweeted, "1) Rick Scott gave an award to the terrorist insurrectionist Trump. 2) He has used language coddling white nationalist extremists in response to the Chauvin verdict. 3) He should never be welcome on your air."

Jesse Lehrich, former foreign policy spokesperson for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, tweeted, "Rick Scott voted to toss election results hours after the deadly Capitol siege, but sure, give him a platform to feign interest in bipartisanship."

hopefully one day they will award them a BLM BBC when convicted, as obvious they know no convictions in the ethical moral sense, as they are non sense that refuse to change, and won't, till we all Make the Change, as that would truly MAGA. This could still be used by Scott, the gop, and N E N all from Trump & Cump, where in Prison their old come on, MAGA, will still and again be M aking A ssholes G ape A gain

I noticed that, too.  I will never again view the Medal of Freedom award as anything other than exploitative.  Trump did the same thing he has done to everything else:  Cheapened it right down to the dirt.

He and Trump are the "Winning" Trump did once speak of when he said 'we will be Winning so much, we will get sick of winning' , is approximate quote i believe, and for once, i might agree, i'm sick of "winning"! Damn, people are "ef" d the fck up, and just because i know, know clock needed, as do not need a second hand to count the years of my "First" hand knowledge explained in minutes of reading my third party account, i closed due to alone without interest i banked on, till i hit a curve, and the bank meant me too, so straight up, i did escape, so i called it a straightaway  the embankment for me to strike over due to their interest that i rate as Low when a banks interest is this High, like me,

cause i have no friends

in the banking business

that have not an interest in mine

accrued daily because deceit often is, as we will pay dearly and many many yearly for that "ef" up that brought hour entire country lower than we ever shoulda/coulda silently or aloud, but don't worry, there are still a plenty oh so proud...

and ignorance ruling, should have NEVER been allowed!   and buy the way, remember the receipt for that deceit is Trump and the GOP, perfectly NOT "Right" for   USA-LL

Amazing.  Had no idea that Scott was present when 'The Man Currently Dwelling In Mar-a-Lago' had to try his earnest to get it up when he was with that McDougal girl.  The skinny was that the work was hard, but the ending wasn't so much.

Rick Scott still has daydreams of becoming president, and of course he needs Trump's blessing to get anywhere in the MAGA -ized GOP. 

It was pretty funny how he simply ignored George Stephanopolous ' question about the election lies. Pure courage. jrSmiley_24_smiley_image.gif

I left FOX newschat years ago for being deleted. When I take the time to formulate, write, edit and post my thoughts and then watch them go Poof I can't see spending much time or effort doing it again. 

IMO: OFF topic is kind of a cop out deletion anyway considering half of what's posted here is off topic.

The only things trump worked hard at was destroying democracy, eating, golfing and kissing putin's ass. 

Trump was the most lazy, worthless, stupid and feckless president in history.

trump did work really hard at trying to keep power.

Many rallies and lie after lie, "The virus will disappear and stop the steel"  You know, lots of hard work... Sarc ! 

Then when the hard work was done he went home to relax as the capitol was attacked. 

trump's "hard work" was done, for the time being.
