President Obama on the 20th of November apparently settled the rift between him and Media Mogul and billionaire, Oprah Winfrey when he presented her and 15 others with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is America’s highest civilian honor and is given to individuals who have made “meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”

President Obama called Oprah “the pinnacle of the entertainment universe,” as he put the medal on her neck. Former President Bill Clinton, country star Loretta Lynn, women’s rights activist Gloria Steinem, baseball legend Ernie Banks and astronaut Sally Ride also received the award.
