Orrin Hatch among 7 to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump

Babe Ruth, Roger Staubach, Alan Page to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

As well as posthumous recognition for Elvis Presley and Babe Ruth, the list includes the wife of a major Republican donor and the longest-serving Republican senator in United States history.

President Donald Trump will give the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seven individuals next week, including the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Among them is prominent Republican donor Miriam Adelson, who nibbled on pizza and mini hotdogs as she watched this week's midterm results with Trump at the White House alongside her husband, casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson. "She has practiced internal and emergency medicine, studied and specialized in the disease of narcotic addiction, and founded two research centers committed to fighting substance abuse".

Six other people, alive and dead, will receive the top medal at a November 16 ceremony.

Two former National Football League players are also recognised: former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach and Alan Page, who began a legal career after leaving the NFL. He was also a philanthropist, focusing on helping children and veterans. He's also one of few entertainers (even if you include the world of sports) receiving a medal this year, no doubt due to most of the entertainment industry's rejection of Trump, his rhetoric, and politics.

Hundreds of such medals have been awarded to political activists, Hollywood stars, philanthropists, diplomats and members of Congress, among others, since President John F. Kennedy reintroduced them as a civilian honor in 1963. Senator Orrin Hatch, 84, the Utah Republican retiring at the end of this congressional term after serving since 1977, will also receive the award.

Scalia, a conservative judicial icon, was cited by the White House for "insisting that the role of federal judges is to uphold the original meaning of the Constitution - never to impose their own beliefs on the country".

Ruth, meanwhile, is celebrated for setting baseball records that lasted for decades, creating the Babe Ruth Foundation, which sought to help underprivileged children, and for raising money for the war effort during World War II.
