And the Atlantic is now losing its *expletive deleted*it, saying that it needs to be abandoned because it's lost its way.

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/09/end-nobel-peace-prize/616300/

Wow... This is the straw that broke the camel's back for this moron, NOT Obama's "participation prize" version for doing absolute dick for nothing and yet being lauded as a great conciliator and peace bringing, although he does deign to mention Obama in the next to last paragraph.

Had Trump's early talks with the Norks panned out and an actual peace treaty signed, I'm betting that he'd still be losing his *expletive deleted*it because somehow an official ending to a 75 year old static state of war isn't peaceful enough.

Maybe BLM or Antifa should be nominated for the peace prize for their "mostly peaceful" demonstrations?

Meh, the guy's not wrong.

The Peace Prize has been a joke (or if you prefer a SJW popularity contest) for decades.  Most of the things that have been a cause for an award failed to make a lasting peace.

We've mocked it on here for years, and not just because of Obama's prize.

If a supposedly prestigious prize has been made a mockery,  and you have the option to not award it until someone really deserves it, why not take that route?

The fact that Mr.Trumps obviously trolling nomination is what pushed the author to this conclusion just means he's late, not wrong.

Obama getting the award for nothing was such a huge troll and smack upside the head to the American right that I can't help but enjoy the turnabout.

Trump actually winning seems very unlikely but unlikely things seem to be happening.

Are you not amused?

You seem to be saying this sarcastically, rather than something that has a high probability of happening (nomination, not winning). If not the Nobel, I'm sure they'll make Time's "person of the year".

Yassir Arafat got the peace prize, so this may not be as far fetched as you may think.

Trump won. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

Lets call that what it is. He got it for being black, even though he is half white. I would have been insulated myself, but whatever.

Trump wins the Electoral College. Eliminate the Electoral College!
Trump is nominated for the Nobel Peace Price. Eliminate the Nobel Peace Prize!

I'm noticing a pattern here.

Atlantic writer wants to end the Nobel Peace Prize now that President Trump has been nominated

I hope Trump is awarded it and then he refuses it citing that he doesn't want to be associated with the likes of Yasser Arafat, Nelson Mandela, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, or Barrack Obama.

A prediction about Trump admin Mid-East peace prospects, from two years ago:

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/09/trump-israel-palestinians/570646/

Quote
Boiled down to its essence, the administrationís message to the Palestinians seems to be: Youíve lost, get over it. Underlying its attempt to radically redefine the terms of the conflict is the conviction that all past attempts have failed and that its new approach therefore must stand a chance. The Trump team is indisputably right about the first part. It is dead wrong about the second.

The Bee thinks they're running a satirical story...

https://babylonbee.com/news/cnn-criticizes-israel-arab-leaders-for-shaking-hands-in-the-middle-of-a-pandemic

And then....

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-shames-trumps-large-crowd-little-social-distancing-at-wh-event-marking-middle-east-peace-deal

So that's CNN's big takeaway on this historic peace agreement.

They can't give Trump anything. They have to crap on everything he does no matter how important it is.

They are vile, evil, twisted people.
