The Presidential Medal Of Freedom was awarded this afternoon at The White House. In total, there were 21 recipients ranging from athletes, entertainers, and more.
One of the funnier photos to emerge from the event was one that the NBA tweeted out. The seemingly innocuous photo takes on a whole new level of hilarity when you realize who’s hanging out in the background… Bruce Springsteen!
This year’s recipients include Robert DeNiro, Tom Hanks, Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen, Cicely Tyson, Diana Ross, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill and Melinda Gates, Vin Scully, and Lorne Michaels.
