President Obama presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 19 people Monday, including actress Meryl Streep. Obama really, really likes Streep.

"The Onion once ran this headline: 'Court rules Meryl Streep unable to be tried by jury, as she has no peers,'" Obama said. "And I’ve said it publicly: I love Meryl Streep. I love her. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There’s nothing either of them can do about it."
