 Trump Wins Nobel Prize (?)
An unknown American had . . . put Trump up for the award for his “ideology of peace through force.”

Things the Left-wing "Fake News" media won't tell you!

Trump Is Still Pretending He Won the Nobel Peace Prize

Trump — who has maintained the legacy of extrajudicial targeted strikes and overseen family separation at the border — has had a strange relationship with the high humanitarian honor since at least 2018, when the Norwegian Nobel Committee found that an unknown American had twice  pretended  to be a qualified nominator and put Trump up for the award for his “ideology of peace through force.” 

In 2019, the White House also  reportedly  asked former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe to nominate Trump for the award.

And in 2020, a similar ploy to appease our image-obsessed executive took place when a far-right member of the Norwegian Parliament nominated Trump. 

Never a close reader, Trump misconstrued the development earlier this year, complaining that the “fake news never even” covered his two Nobel wins — which do not exist.

There are few remaining opportunities for Donald Trump to use the power of the presidency in a bizarre and meaningless way — but he seems to be swinging at every one that comes at him.

On Monday, Trump tweeted out what is basically a campaign video for an election he lost two months ago, showing him as he “stands for America,” appoints Supreme Court judges, signs executive orders, and enjoys support from all his most important constituencies: “women for Trump,” “Latinos for Trump,” “Blacks for Trump,” and the beautiful boaters.

Some have learned that defending trump is a waste of time and just move on, others just throw together a bunch of BS thinking others won't notice.

Though his administration’s negotiation of this formal recognition of Israel — the first time an Arab nation has done so since 1994 — will be one of the few lasting achievements of Trump’s foreign policy, it did not win him the Nobel Peace Prize.

The superimposition of the gold medal over a clip of the meeting, however, suggested that it did.

Why only two? Why not claim he actually won five Nobel Prizes?

(And in several states jrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif )

After all, his most ardent supporters will believe anything he says-- no matter how nutty!

How does anyone get a peace prize when they have divided the country to the point of another civil war?

 have divided the country

Maybe its just a spelling error? Since he has divided the country-- maybe he should get The Pieces Prize?

True!

Some of his more gullible cult members saw him as a God-like figure!

Most sitting presidents are named the most admired person of the year, almost all of them but not trump. Obama was the most admired person in 2017 and 2018. Too funny.

Obama's vote was split with Biden's this year. One thing is for damn sure. Melania Trump never ever challenged Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama for the top spot as the Most Admired Woman. She is not anywhere near being in their class. Trump is one and done this year but only with a measly fifteen percent of the vote.

It was 18% but who's counting. Anyway, Melania got four...........just above Oprah and two less than Harris. And been in the top ten four times.

Was curious so I googled it-- if anyone is interested in actual facts, here they are:

Obama is the fourth President of the United States to have won the Nobel Peace Prize (after Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter, with Carter's honor happening after leaving office).

IMO,the Nobel Peace Prize is the only one that more often than not has no merit. But but getting back to the actual topic of this seed-- Trump never got two as he claimed. In fact, Never ever even got one.

(But then again, the fact that he lied should come as no surprise...)

An unknown American had . . . put Trump up for the award for his “ideology of peace through force.”

Has anyone figured out who the "unknown American" is???

I'm guessing it was either John Miller or John Barron ...  ; o }
