[Ed. – It was just a commemorative painting of their brigade shield, and all the group did was endorse Trump for president back in 2016 (the first such endorsement ever by the group). Note that this is the sort of thing the media refer to when they say Trump has “lied” eleventy-million times.]

CNN tried to fact-check President Donald Trump’s weekend claim that he received the “Bay of Pigs” award Sunday by reporting that no such award exists.

“For those confused by Trump’s claim he got the ‘highly honored Bay of Pigs Award’: He got an endorsement in 2016 from the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association. It’s not an award,” explained network fact-checker Daniel Dale.
