Donald Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize, and No, This is Not a Joke.
It looks like everyone’s favorite asshole is up for a Nobel Peace Prize. Donald Trump, yes, THE Donald Trump, was nominated for the prestigious award by an unknown entity. Is this a sad attempt at additional noteoriety after suffering a loss in Iowa, or does someone actually think he’s a good pick for the Prize? The nomination came from somewhere within the United States, which is entirely unsurprising as he’s a good bit of a joke everywhere else. We have quite the vocal minority here in the good old US of A.
According to the letter that nominated him for the Prize, Trump is a worthy winner because of “his vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, Isis, nuclear Iran and Communist China.” Huh? Sounds suspiciously like the Drunk Uncle from Saturday Night Live, doesn’t it? Note that Trump has forced audience members he disagreed with out of campaign events, made fun of disabled reporters, and wants to build a big-ass wall between the United States and Mexico.
Of course, a nomination is very different than actually winning the Prize, and it’s expected that the team who picks the winners isn’t going to give The Donald’s sad fuckery a second look. Let’s hope it’s both a loss for the Prize, and for the Oval Office.
