Ellen just received the highest honor that a U.S. civilian can, and as President Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom at the White House, the talk show host couldn’t keep tears from streaming down her face as she accepted it.

After receiving the medal, Ellen took to Twitter to do what she does best... crack a joke! (She pretty much got denied entry into the White House for forgetting her ID)
And if that wasn't cute enough, check out the full ceremony speech here! (Ellen's speech kicks in around 19:40)
