President Donald Trump has included three sports figures among his first recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, as former New York Yankees slugger Babe Ruth, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach and nine-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Alan Page are set to be honored.
Trump is giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the top US civilian honor, to 3 dead people (Elvis, Babe Ruth, Antonin Scalia), a GOP senator (Orrin Hatch), and Miriam Adelson, the wife of GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson, who gave $55 million to elect Republicans in the midterms pic.twitter.com/R90usNwUCP

Well for sure these dead guys can not turn down an invitation to the White House.
And I’ll bet Trump is all excited about meeting Elvis and Babe Ruth. Nobody tell him.
