  • Nobel Peace Prize For Trump...

    The Trump has now normalized relations between Israel and United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. If Obama can get a peace prize for doing literally nothing why wouldn't Trump deserve one?

    Or more to the point if Obama can get one in spite of starting conflicts in the mid east, decimating third world countries, arming terrorist networks, drone bombing weddings, and assassinating US citizens...

      Doesn't basically all of that relate to stuff that happened after he got the Nobel Prize? One can hardly say he got it "in spite of" it if he hadn't done any of it yet.

        I can't see the committee voting for Trump. It seems to mostly be one guy sticking a finger in the eyes of his colleagues. He previously nominated Trump in 2018 for his work trying to reconcile relations between North and South Korea.

          True, but if it's put in the context of why Trump should or shouldn't have it, then Trump obviously deserves it much more than Obama.

            He'd be the first president to have been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize as well as an Emmy -- and be an inductee into the WWE's Hall of Fame

              In Denmark we thought it was really odd for Obama to get it.

                He got it for not being Bush, tbh. It was daft.

                  Obama got one because the rest of the Western world breathed a sigh of relief when Bush was out of office, and the Nobel prize committee is people from that group. Since Trump is generally viewed as worse than Bush by most of America's Western allies there's approximately negative infinity percent chance of Trump getting a Nobel peace prize, but a non-zero possibility that Biden gets one for not being Trump.
                  he "decided not to hurt anybody because he did not have the means to kill enough people", Crown prosecutor Chris Lange told the Court.

                    I agree on all of the above, except the bolded part. Not the Trump is viewed as even worse than Bush bit, but Trump does throw his weight around on the world stage and the US is still currently a superpower, which can't really be ignored (and we know that Trump is such a man-child that he'll throw his toys out the pram if he doesn't get a peace prize like Obama did).

                      This proving that the Nobel prize is from the bottom of a cracker jack box.

                      The best part is how oh so serious lefties are about it.

                        Trump was nominated once before in 2018 and didn't win. Did he "throw his toys out of the pram"? Of course he didn't.

                            Especially since he had only been president a couple of weeks and had done NOTHING whatsoever to deserve it. They awarded it based on their hope and expectations and the fact he wasn't Bush.

                              The Nobel peace prize has been widely regarded as a joke for some time now, like the Nobel prize in economics. Both should probably just be dropped.
                              he "decided not to hurt anybody because he did not have the means to kill enough people", Crown prosecutor Chris Lange told the Court.
