Earlier this week, Simone Biles –  Olympic and World gymnastic champion –  became the youngest person ever to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. But wait…there’s a twist.

The nation’s highest civilian award, the medal is given to individuals who “have made exemplary contributions to the prosperity, values, or security of the United States, world peace, or other significant societal, public or private endeavors,” the White House said.

Believe it or not, not everyone was happy about those who were chosen for the prestigious honor.

Jenna Ellis, a former lawyer for President Trump’s campaign (you know, the one who lost more than 60 fake ‘voter fraud’ cases), took to Twitter to criticize Biles and Rapinoe.
