(PatriotWise.com)- Former President Donald Trump received the inaugural “Champion for Freedom” award this week from the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
The award, which was granted by the campaign arm of the Senate Republicans, was awarded to the former president during a weekend event at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, during which the former president tore into Dr. Anthony Fauci and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
During his speech, the former president said that Fauci – who was the head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force during the Trump administration – was “full of crap.”
“Have you ever seen anybody that is so full of crap?” Trump said.
The former president went in even harder on Senate Minority Leader McConnell, slamming him as a “dumb son of a b*tch.”
Speaking about McConnell’s refusal to work with then-President Trump in the wake of the 2020 presidential election to pursue court cases and audits that could have proven widespread election fraud and misconduct, the president said that the Democrats would have never allowed it to happen.
“If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a b—-, Mitch McConnell, they would never allow it to happen,” he said.
Speaking about the certification of the election results in Congress on January 6, Trump said that Democrats “would have fought it.”

The fact that former President Donald Trump was given the award by Senate Republicans shows just how much support he still has within the party. McConnell has indicated he does not plan to resign any time soon, but the former president will play a bigger role than the veteran Republican politician in deciding the future of the party and the 2022 midterm election campaigns.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee said that the new award will be granted 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.”
Which certainly sounds like former President Trump.
Rick Scott, the chairman of the NRSC and a Senator for Florida, said that Trump “made clear his commitment to getting government out of the way of people’s success” during his administration, which paved the way for American families and job creators to “reach new heights.”
“President Trump fought for American workers, secured the border, and protected our constitutional rights. We are grateful for his service to our country and are honored to present him with the NRSC’s first Champion for Freedom award,” he continued.
