Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida traveled down to Mar-a-Lago over the weekend of Saturday, April 10, to present former President Donald Trump with a small bowl along with the title "Champion for Freedom."
Scott gave Trump the award on behalf of the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC), who just recently made up the title.

The award was likely an effort to placate the former President who spent the last several weeks lashing out at Republican leaders.

Scott himself has ample motivation to stay on Trump's good side, with many suspecting the Florida Senator may make a run for President in 2024.

Forgot to mention that the bowl will be named the "Trump Bowl" in Donald's honor. Like how the NHL's "Stanley Cup"… https://t.co/IbAQUOKuwL— H. Bosch II (@H. Bosch II)1618270998.0
Trump himself didn't bother dressing up to receive his "award."
This is really "sad" and embarrassing. It's also embarrassing that he never changes his clothes. 🤣 https://t.co/P09DEKsF5e— Hootilarious (@Hootilarious)1618283630.0

Many online quipped the small bowl looked like it could have been bought in a department store.
