It wasn't just Antonin Scalia's conservative jurisprudence that impressed President Donald Trump.
At a Medal of Freedom ceremony at the White House Friday, the commander-in-chief lauded the late Supreme Court justice, a posthumous medal recipient — and his wife, who was in attendance for the ceremony — for their proficiency in procreating.
Trump, in his introduction of Scalia's widow, Maureen, recognized that the couple had nine children together.
"You were very busy," Trump said. "Wow. Wow."
"I always knew I liked him," he added.
The Medal of Freedom is the highest national honor a president can bestow on a civilian.
Antonin Scalia, who had been the bench's ideological conservative, died in February 2016 at the age of 79.
