Ummmmmmmmmmmmm, he's been nominated for it. Only those who haven't been nominated for it can't get it.

Between this and confederacy monuments, ya’ll are in love with participation prizes this year.

Good practice for November.

Nominated doesn't mean he'll get it. Even Putin has been nominated (in 2014!!). Being nominated is not hard. Every year there are hundreds of nominees. Trump has even been nominated once before (in 2018).

The Peace Prize has been a joke ever since Arafat was awarded it. Hell, even Obama got it, and he liked to drone bomb the **** out of places. But we'll see. I think people have pushed for Trump to be nominated, we'll see if he wins. I mean, if Arafat can win it, then yeah, sure.

Weep about what? You Trump supporters have been telling us since Obama that the "Noble" Prize is a joke. So did Trump. Now it's awesome?

No wonder he loves the uneducated.

It is a joke, but it would be fun if he got it just to see heads explode.

He was nominated by some far right European politician, with a controversial past regarding immigration policy. All of this makes sense, and I expect the conclusion will make sense as well. :lol:

To be fair, Obama was perfectly aware he didn’t deserve it. When it was announced his reaction was basically “WTF?”

The only heads I ever saw explode over the awarding of the Nobel Prize were Obama's opponents and Donald Trump.

Oh, now, come on, you know if Trump got it, the American left would suffer a massive case of the bends. The Nobel prize would be cancelled, at minimum....lol...

I've long felt that the Nobel Peace Prize needn't be awarded each time, and really should only go to those who actually push for and make progress towards peace.

All I know is that Trump and the citizens of Trump Fan Nation have been telling us since 2009 that the prize is a joke and means nothing. Now they think it does? I can't decide if that makes them all stupid or hypocritical. Both, actually.

Yeah, I agree... It's another dated institution that doesn't really translate well to today's society. In a world where division has become the most useful tool in acquiring power, finding someone worthy of a peace award on a yearly basis is no small task.
