WATCH: Donald Trump Tells Maureen Scalia: ‘Wow, You Were Busy. I Always Knew I Liked Him’

Classy.

President Donald Trump on Friday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to numerous distinguished individuals, including some who have already passed away.

Among the recipients was the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016. Scalia’s wife, Maureen, was in attendance at the ceremony to accept the award on her husband’s behalf.

In his praise of Scalia, however, Trump managed to squeeze in a dirty joke about the Scalias’ sex life after reading off the names of the couple’s nine children.

“You were busy, weren’t you?” Trump joked to Mrs. Scalia. “I always knew I liked him.”

Watch the president’s remarks below:

The president’s crass lack of decorum was met with disgust on social media.

“Boorish,” one user said of Trump.
